Coffee Shop Paraphrases Jay-Z To Explain Why You Should Stop Talking On Your Phone When You Order

Among the complaints we hear from people on the other side of the foodservice counter is that there are always some customers who won’t stop talking on the phone when it’s their time to order.

These chatterboxes will tell the employee to “wait a sec,” or just silently make a hand gesture to signify that this call is so important it can’t be interrupted, but not important enough to step out of line or give up their spot to the next person.

So we’re not surprised that the above sign above is already wildly popular on Reddit. We assume this is paraphrasing the Jay-Z hit “99 Problems,” which contains the oft-quoted lyric, “If you’re having girl problems, I feel bad for you son. I’ve got 99 problems but a bitch ain’t one.”

The sign, which the user said was found at his/her local coffee shop and bakery, reads, “If you’re talking on your phone I feel bad for you, son. I’m taking 99 orders but yours ain’t one.”
