In Sydney’s niche world of creative, non-fiction, narrative blogging, there’s a new kid on the block, Graveyard Barista. He reports on the unique characters in his all-night downtown café.
Where I pride myself in the ability to fashion stories from encounters lasting a few minutes, GYB does the same thing in a matter of seconds. He is that good a writer,
Working in the service industry means you only interact with each of your customers for a few seconds each day....Most people breeze in, are nice enough, and breeze out again. I notice the small things in my customers; it’s all first impressions.
Even more galling, this
bastard barista is not yet half my age. But that’s Gen Y for you, no respect.
Anyhow, for your daily fix of tales from Sydney’s netherworld check out GYB. You won’t be disappointed to add him to your Favourites.
Disclosure: GYB is one of my regular baristas who may, or may not, give me preferential service during peak periods. Just so you know.
