So. I was at my favorite coffee shop yesterday. They have started a loyalty program. You know the type, buy 9 get one free. At least that is what the card says ... Count the punch holes required to get to the star.

I guess this means they fired their "Bean Counter" ?

Sorry.

Stuff like this makes me want to shake the recent graduate who was put in charge of the project and failed.

Duh. Obviously, you buy 9, you get the 10th free and a gold star. Easy

The card was obviously developed by the same guy who teaches the counter people how to make change!

I woke this morning to have the answer to this riddle just pop in my head.

It so simple, really.

It's Metric coffee.
