and someone asks for "half tea - half milk - three sugars"
what do you do?
(I worked with someone who had instant coffee - five spoonfuls of coffee, five sugars, no milk. And then she wouldn't drink it until it was cold.)
listening to your boring shit all day.
based on seven or eight year's research.
Told them that they're a child.
They tried to explain that their mother used to have six sugars and that's why they have three.
"Does your mother have any teeth left?"
So close to saying that's why.
Provide them with a pot of tea, mug, saucer, teaspoon, jug of milk, and bowl of sugars.
But I work at a hotel, so...
HOWEVER, when you offer to make a round of teas and someone asks for a hot chocolate... oh you make-a-me-so-a-maddddd!!!
Would lose their minds in the office here.
People slinging various crazy fruity things into a glass, let me say that again, a glass and filling it with water from the cooler.
Can't criticise that.
you keep it simple. It needs to be milk and sugar options only. Not how strong it is, how much milk exactly, what kind of cup or anything else. It is just rude otherwise.
Same goes for a drink in a bar I reckon. "Oh can I have an orange and mango J20, with ice and a slice of LIME, in a pint glass topped up with lemonade please?". Just ask for an orange juice ffs.
I'm just going to leave the cup after a few token sips of the slightly tea-flavoured hot water and then sulk for an hour.
to have a problem with making this. Sure, it sounds disgusting (as do all variants of tea with a nonzero amount of sugar), but it takes literally no more effort to make than any other ratio of tea/milk/sugar.
Although I did read the "half tea" specification at first in the same way someone might say "half a sugar", and was confused as to how you might do that.
