So this was sorta gross

Working in the Newport Beach Bruegger’s Bagels. Love it here—many tables, outlets. wide open windows, manager is awesome.

Plus, free coffee refills.

So a few minutes ago I approached the counter for a refill. Kid’s working—probably 19. Maybe 20.

“You want a refill?” he said.

“Yup,” I replied. “That cool?”

“Sure,” he said.

Then he took my used cup, opened the ice chest, dipped it in and scooped.

I’m thinking of all the used cups that had a swan dive into the ice.
