Spoiled coffee beans

To all the spoiled coffee shop workers talking about unionizing,

You need a serious dose of reality. I take offense to your complaints over trivial matters. You have the nerve to complain about your “working conditions” when most of us have to deal with ten times more shit than you do on a daily basis. Here's a taste of it; We can't take breaks when we want to. Sometimes the work demands long hours – often without compensation - to meet deadlines. Our meetings can go on forever, regardless of how bad we want to smoke/sleep/party. We deal with big projects, clients and deadlines. Some of us have to sacrifice our well being, once in a while, to get shit done. We have a lot of responsibilities and professional expectations to uphold. But that's just how it is, and we deal with it.

If you think your “working conditions” are so terrible working in a coffee shop, you're going to shit yourself in any other environment. I wish I could see your face the moment you're told to stay up all night to meet a deadline and present the next day.

Grow up. —Uncle G
