A restless boomer might need to take her shoes to the cobbler, after spending the morning tapping her feet so hard her heels will need to be resoled.
Enjoying an extended vacation in the quaint seaside town of Bargara, this morning Helen Peters (62) was spotted putting on a broadway song and dance equivalent to the energetic jive of one Michael Flatley, the infamous Irish ‘Lord of the Dance”.
After waiting four entire minutes for her takeaway coffees to be ready, it’s understood Mrs Peters was close to interrogating young wait-staff about the hold-up.
“I don’t understand what’s taking so long!” a huffing Helen told The Advocate.
“All I ordered was two flat whites, one soy with sweetener and the other with three sugars on full cream and you’d think they were cooking me a four-course dinner in there.”
Impatiently tapping her feet outside the popular seaside cafe “Bargara Brew”, it’s believed despite the cafe simply trying their best to operate under extremely tough circumstances, the speed and level of service was simply not up to scratch.
“If that blue-haired barista doesn’t hurry up I’ll be taking my money elsewhere,” moaned Helen, who was only planning on spending one night in the tourist ravaged town.
Speaking to local cafe owner Marcus Vittoria, the recent influx of day-trip tourists is understood to have put immense pressure on his short roster of available staff, many of whom are currently sideways battling a 7-day bout of the Pangolin Kiss.
“No one’s blown into Bangara all year and then as soon as the clock ticked into January every poodle owning asshole from the city has shown up expecting a seamless experience,” said Mr Vittoria.
“I’m doing a two-hour round trip in the morning to pick up fresh eggs cos every delivery driver in Queensland has gone down with the flu…”
“If one more boomer complains that I’ve got a reduced menu for breakfast, I’ll be telling them to shove their artificial sweetener up their ass!”
