art every day #20: uncovering the plot

smashed-pastry

here's the current state of the dairy and pastry case at our downtown starbucks. "what happened?" i asked the manager. "there are varying accounts on that," he said. which set my mind spinning immediately on the potential plots and the cast of characters involved in the destruction of the pastry case.

my top guesses:

1) the drunkard who plowed through Nomads' window last week
2) the deer who took out the front window at Weaver's
3) a fight for the last top pot doughnut

any more ideas?

(more art every day here.)

A grief stricken dieter who had saved her points/calories/treat for the last pumpkin cream cheese muffin only to find it was gone and the remaining option was a plain, day old bagel.

Someone spilled their hot coffee on the cold glass?

Love the post...could be the espresso machine broke down..oh how horrible that would be.;-)

Cori Lynn Berg said...

An employee who was sick of all the specific "mocha nonfat sugarfree soymilk with a splash of hazelnut" type customers walked by the case and banged his head in angst!

Beth Niquette said...

How about the man who bumped his head? Or the Woman who craved buttermilk? lol

It's completely shattered! How did it happen? I guess some clumsy person lik eme just walked into it-nothing that out of the ordinary, just everyday clumsiness! Or an elephant.

I agree with the espresso machine being broken...I know I might have punched the glass if I heard that one today. My head was very groggy and I was sleepy and needed my morning cup of coffee! I hope they get it fixed before someone gets hurt when it caves in.

it just crossed my mind: does this even qualify for art every day? oh, yeah. i'll file this under CREATIVE THINKING.

i think the customer/employee backlash theory has some substance to it...

Well, on Facebook I said it sounds like the drunkard got ahold of the deer... but then I read the actual article and I feel pretty bad about that poor, panicked deer!

Did they at least run off with some good stuff!?!?!

It was me.

I found out all the coffee sleeves were gone.

The glass shattered when it found out how many calories were in those baked goods.

P.S. I saw this and thought of you.

Is it bad that when I saw this picture, I didn't think so much about what might have caused the initial destruction - but the further damage one of my girls would do if they go near enough? I truly believe they take those kinds of warnings as a personal challenge...to my sanity.

I left a very long confession here yesterday, but I see it didn't post! Wah!

AG Ambroult said...

an over-caffinated client gone mad?

Karen Blados said...

It was probably some idiot on her third day working there cleaning the case and dropping it. Then she probably listened to it make a very strange sound and suddenly splinter into a spiderweb of little pieces of glass.

Oh wait, that was me about 20 years ago.

And then my manager told me I'd have to work there forever to pay off the very expensive case window that they'd have to order from Germany. The boss's daughter told him to cut it out since I was shaking and probably seconds away from breaking another one.

Sigh.
