Ex Barista here, hope that is close enough. Some guy on Valentine’s Day came in and asked us to write on the cup “will you marry me?”. It did not go well.

She looked at the cup while he went down on one knee. She said nothing, put the cup back down, and just walked away shaking her head.

He, on the other hand, got pissed and started to rant about how she should have gotten over him sleeping with her sister already. . . . we had to ask him to leave.

Edit: Oh I have a good story if you don’t mind me sharing. Not on V-day though. We had a guy come in and asked us to write “will you go to the prom with me.” She said yes so happily! I think they ended up engaged 2 years later since we started to see rings on their fingers. They were lovely regulars and I wish them the best. —TheThrowawayFox
