Coffee@300 at coffeeshop – festive cheer offer!

I was at a coffee shop in a new city. Part of a global chain, i used it for their free wi-fi & co-working tables. This one was in a Tony neighbourhood. The month of festivities had just begun – they had poster ads all over the place talking about it. I was seeing the colourful posters when two men walked in.

They stood at the entrance, looked around & whispered to each other. The older amongst the two began to turn when the younger one nudged him back. They walked towards the order counter. Their walk told me they were new. My seat was close to the counter. So when they approached the attendant, I could hear them.

Three hundred! the attendants voice boomed loud. So this time there could be no mistake. In what he said & what they heard.

Three hundred! the younger one repeated the words. They faced each at the same time, exchanged a look. Then they turned & walk towards the door. I watched the attendant watch them walk. Behind him are the posters that said –

Spreading Festive cheer – Grab your fav. coffee now!
