Neurotic Like Me: Overheard at Philz

(Conversation overheard at Philz Coffee, 24th and Folsom, 7:58 a.m. today)

Annoying White Chick: This is the only place I get coffee in this burg. You guys are the only ones with integrity.

Barista: That's great.

AWC: I mean, I really feel like I'm back home...you know...in a neighborhood with chutzpah...with umph...with, you know, integrity.

Barista: And when did you leave L.A.?

AWC: L.A! I'm from Clinton Park! Lower Manhattan!

Barista: M-Kay. How did you want your Symphonic Blend?

AWC: Light and sweet as we say back in New Yahk!

Barista: M-Kay. And how did you want your Arabic, sir?

Me: Dark and sour as we always said back in Dubrovnik

AWC: Huh?

Barista: I totally hear you. No need to get that stuff in the way of a good brew. Nothing like having--

Me: Integrity.

Barista: Exactly.

Still not sure if there was a racial slur in there. Sleep depravity can get in the way of irony.
