Wake up and smell the coffee

I’m waiting in a coffee shop whilst my car gets its MOT done. By “waiting” I really mean “having breakfast” and coffee. It’s a nice, clean, recently opened little place with a reasonable breakfast too

But it doesn’t have many customers, 3 in fact in the hour I’ve been here and I think I know why. The service is lousy.

I finished my food over an hour ago and have been web surfing since then. The dirty dishes are still on the table and no attempt has been made to offer me another cup of coffee. An easy upsell is just about to walk out of the door, thirsty.

Simple things make happy customers, but I guess I won’t be back next year, even if the place survives that long.
