Do not ask an English teacher a stupid question before she's had her coffee.
On Sunday morning, Lynne Rosenthal, a college English professor from Manhattan, visited a Starbucks and asked for a "toasted multigrain bagel." The barista asked, "Do you want butter or cheese?" Rosenthal became enraged, reports the New York Post.
"I just wanted a multigrain bagel," Rosenthal told the Post. "I refused to say 'without butter or cheese.' When you go to Burger King, you don't have to list the six things you don't want.
"Linguistically, it's stupid, and I'm a stickler for correct English."
Police officers arrived at the Starbucks to subdue Rosenthal, according to the the Post. She claims she was tossed from the store, but Starbucks refutes that claim.
This is why I have my coffee before I leave the house.
