I don’t want to give out my name when I order a coffee.
Why do they need my name? I don’t want my name blurted out in front of the Gloria Jeans crowd. It’s none of their business. Can’t they give me a number? Or even do their job and remember what I ordered? Who knows – maybe even bring it to my table? Do I ask too much?
Giving out my name at cafes feels like an invasion of privacy. After all it’s just a cup of coffee, not a committment ceremony here.
So what’s the answer? Give a false name? I’ve done this many times but keep forgetting what my cafe name is. Probably stopping going to these places is the only real answer. It’s not like the coffee’s any good, but it’s difficult now – they know my name.
