Anyway, so I got inside the coffee shop around 8:45 perhaps. There was a small line. After waiting 5 minutes perhaps, I got to the counter, and the person already knew my drink. She asked whether I was getting a doppio espresso and I merely confirmed it.
Now, here's the surprising thing. Upon confirming that I wanted a doppio espresso, she reached behind the other cash register and gave me a cup. A doppio espresso, already made and ready. Apparently, they anticipated my order and went ahead and made it, even though I haven't told them yet that I wanted that. Usually, I would place my order, I would pay for it, and move to the other end of the counter as I wait while they make my drink. This time, I didn't even need to wait, it was already ready by the time I paid for the drink.
I suppose I am a creature of habit. Unless the habit proves to be the case that it doesn't work, I probably won't change things, unless I need to satisfy some curious jolt. The person behind the counter jokingly told me that I wasn't allowed to change my drink anymore, because people there already know that I would be getting a doppio espresso the moment I enter the establishment. I suppose it makes for some funny encounters.
