I work at a coffee shop that's located in a prestigious academy for high school students. Hoo boy I knew that these kids were spoiled but some of them take it to a whole nother level. "I'm late to class! Hurry up and give me my latte!" "Why can't I use my rewards here? It's going to expire tomorrow! I'll have you fired!" "What do you mean that you're out of bagels? What am I supposed to eat now?" Ughhh if it weren't for the good pay, I'd leave this shithole for good!
I’m of the opinion that it’s a really bad idea for teens to drink caffeine. There have been studies about it and caffeine can have negative impacts on adults too, but to a lesser extent. Growth problems, acne, weight gain, anxiety, and difficulty in class are apparently some of the side effects on teens. The fact that a cafe is even in a school is just so disappointing, especially for a prestigious school. I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re addicted and it’s the part of the reason behind their irritability and lack of patience. The other part is privilege considering I’m sure they’re rich since they’re at a fancy school. -Abby
