Production Rant: Bad Beans Spoil Crew Brew
Crew members with high maintenance coffee orders are killing me!
You know who you are, ordering a grande soy, half-caff, light foam, blended, salted, whipped caramel FLOPP-IATO served in Vente cup…blah blah blah. And when your order returns with sprinkles NOT chocolate syrup lovingly drizzled over the non-dairy whipped topping you complain that your coffee is ALWAYS wrong. COME ON!!!! Your coffee is always wrong because your order novella complicates things. Maybe you need to be reminded that producers will swiftly put the kibosh on ANY production complications; it’s their job! I don’t want to see a few bad beans ruin the afternoon crew brew ritual, so please, I am begging:
IF YOU ARE ON SET
AND A PRODUCTION ASSISTANT ASKS FOR YOUR COFFEE ORDER,
FOR THE LOVE OF CREW ETIQUETTE,
ORDER SOMETHING SIMPLE!
While I’m on my soapbox, how about showing a little appreciation to the people kind enough to bring you coffee. A simple THANK YOU goes a long way.
