Tonight I am staying in a hotel in Sydney CBD. I am a bit of a coffee freak so prefer to stay in hotels that provide a Nespresso Machine or equivalent. These day most hotels ask your preferences and mine is always is to ask for a minumum of 250mls of fresh milk ( not UHT in my fridge) and I bring my own milk frother just in case one is not provided
Tonight’s hotel apparrently asks for customer requests and then ignores them.
So I make the call.
Me: “Please send me up more coffee pods and 250ml of fresh milk.”
Housekeeping: “Madam are you aware there will be a charge of $5 for the fresh milk?”
Me: “You must be kidding. There is a Woolies around the corner I will get my milk there? How much for the extra coffee pods?”
Housekeeping: “No charge Madam”
This 6th generation dairy farmer is flabbergasted. $5 for 250ml of fresh milk. Please dont tell the cows
One thought on “Valuing fresh milk – lost in translation”
I get annoyed when I ask for a “flat white” and I get something with hot froth. It’s actually dangerous when you have a young child or grabbing baby. I just want some cold milk in it for crying out loud!
