Recently I got a job working at BK. I've only worked four days. Well today I was out front working the cash register, and this lady(I'm calling her Ms. Coffee) comes into and asks for a cup of coffee. I was more than willing to give it to her. She gives me a credit card and it gets declined. So she gives me a second card and it gets declined as well. Ms. Coffee starts digging around in her purse for some money to pay me, the coffee was only a $1.30. She ended up being 20 cents short. I asked my manager(Mr. Boss) if I could give her the coffee and forget about the money that she owed us. He said that it was fine, and he poured the coffee for Ms. Coffee. Mr. Boss left enough room for cream and sugar for Ms. Coffee. Well a little bit later she came back and wanted to have the coffee filled up the rest of the way. I was happily obliging. when she asks me if it is decaf. The conversation went a little bit like this.

Ms. Coffee(MC): Is this decaf?
Me: I don't know, nor can I guarantee that it is right now.
MC: What do you mean you don't know or that you can't guarantee it?
Me: I didn't make the coffee, I didn't put the coffee here, I don't know for 100% that it is decaf.
MC: Well this is for my mother, and she has a heart condition and high blood pressure, she can't have caffeine.

She got very angry at me and was not letting me try to explain or ask someone who could guarantee it. As she was walking away she finally said that I should go ask somebody or something like that. I might have said something a little bit louder that I meant to, and that I shouldn't have said. I don't really remember exactly how the conversation went but I think that you will get the general idea of it.  Oh and the whole point of me telling you this story about Ms. Coffee is that she is filing a complaint against me. On my fourth day of work. Over coffee. I understand that her mom could die or have complications from caffeine, but at least give me a chance to explain or ask someone that does know.

That;s my side and I'm sticking to it.

And since this is a supposed to be a pastry blog I will update you on a recipe I made recently. I got it from another blog and the pictures look really good and makes me want some. So I thought I would try out the S'more Pie. I won't lie, it was okay. It was not my favorite dessert, I probably won't make it ever again. When it was fresh out of the oven was probably the best time to eat it. Which I did, but there seemed to be a taste that I did not care for. I even tried it while it was cold and it still had the taste that I did not care for. I believe that it was the marshmallow fluff that was used.  It did sort of taste like s'mores, but I would prefer burning the marshmallows over an open flame and making s'mores that way.
Try it, don't try. You have my opinion and I don't care what you do with it.
