They take the cup off you.. place it in the washing and give you a clean one. Assuming they didn't notice you hadn't bought one or saw you pick up the cup from another table.
Love it... It's all POF birds should expect anyway imo...
Why would a 'clean' cup be on a table :/ ?
Once upon a time, a coffee was just a coffee, it was brown, sometimes hot, and you poured Milk in it. 'classy' joints had sugar in cubes, wrapped in paper , dives had a teaspoon on a chain, nailed to the wall. Life and simpler then, one expected , paid and got relatively little! Any been to $tarbucks once, when offered a truly bewildering range of beverages, I looked the kid inter eye and stated "*just* coffee thanks" - he was wise ,didn't argue the point, I drank it, concluded it was nothing special, and never went back again . Defeating cafe culture, one thermos at a time!
Thanks guys, I was always getting the standard overpriced things when I felt like resting there for a while, good to know.
