We’ve been getting into the spooktacular holiday spirit all week long here at Sprudge with another year of original Halloween fiction. And yesterday on Twitter, we asked you to get in on the fun by creating “true coffee horror stories in six words.” The answers ranged from ghoulish to hilarious, too real to too soon. Though economic with word count, the responses were liberal with the terror. We’ve selected some our favorites to share with you now.
It all began with:
True coffee horror stories in six words.
"The boss listens through the iPad."

Some terrors come at the start of a shift:
NO ONE IS SCHEDULED TO OPEN. #coffeehorror6words

Some after it’s over:
We should get a coffee sometime
— Erika Booooooooonie 👻 (@OkAn_EerieEvil) October 30, 2019
Some are just a little too real:
Give me a no foam cappuccino.

“Well, when I was in Italy…”

Through Instagram: I’m a coffee influencer! Free coffee?

Some were really real:
Scott Rao is coming in today.

Some didn’t perhaps understand the rules of the game:
“Hi can you come look at our machine? We broke the screw off inside the group”. pic.twitter.com/hVRrYmKutK

Others don’t seem to understand much of anything at all:
“Gary Gary Gary Gary Gary Gary”

There were simply too many great answers to fit into one post, but All Hallows Even is not yet over and we want more! Got a six word coffee horror story? Head on over to Twitter and let us hear it.
