Because you order a no-room grand drip coffee (medium black coffee) every morning and more than 60% of the times, they get the order wrong. And you can not think how someone could get a simple coffee order wrong. So, you tried various tactics to place the order by changing sequence of words and pauses. They were:

1. Grande drip, (pause) no room
2. Drip coffee (pause) no room, grande size
3. Grande, no room (pause) drip
4. Grande drip no room-no pause
5. Grande no room drop-no pause
6. No room, grande drip-no pause
7. No room (long pause-count 123 in your head) grande (short pause-count 1 in your head) drip

Number 7 is the winner! If you follow 7, you have the highest likelihood of getting the medium black coffee you want.

And because you've attended our second favourite institution of learning (not counting life itself) Singularity University, who challenges all their students to have a positive impact on 1 billion people withing 10 years of launching their projects. And because at some point it will be a good idea to fall in love.
