Since I like La Colombe coffee, I usually tolerate their brisk, unsmiling staff. However, after today I will not be returning. When I took out my wallet to pay for my coffee, the barista bluntly asked if he could see my social security card! I was so flabbergasted that I just stared back at him, and he urged, ""no, no, let me just see that."" Then he had the unmitigated gall to ask me if it was real, and when I replied with a bewildered affirmative he stated that it ""sure looked different"" than his.
