       I work for a well-known coffee company, and more than once have I been very tempted to hurl a 160 degree latte at someone's face.

    dotsA Haiku on Customer Service and Lifedots

    Frequently I want
    to say, "Dude........ seriously?"
    but I hold my tongue.

      5-7-5 maybe not but I thought it was funny. I work in customer service and I actually think the same of the customer. "Dude....seriously" are my thoughts often.

    I liked it! Write on!

      "Frequently I want
    every nice thing I see,
    but I know that's greed"

    ha. That would have been crap!

    But yours was cool imho.

    internet memes, they are not very poetic but...yes.

      this is a senryu but i'm not sure you wanted to know that... still, i'll say it (and yes, i've written hundreds of both).

    i've worked in cafes and restaurants before so i know this feeling well; i'm sure any front of house staff member will be able to read this and laugh... rather ironically.

    anyway, just a quick breeze through comment, really.

      Actually, that's wrong. To anyone who feels like commenting my haiku with criticisms regarding the standards of haikus: KNOW WHAT A [censored]ING HAIKU IS IN THE FIRST PLACE. THX!

      I think that a haiku must SAY something of possible interest to a reader, such as:-

    Frequently I want
    every nice thing I see,
    but I know that's greed.

    Have another think about your subject first, but be careful counting,--- the "every" I used above has 3 syllables for such a little word.

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
