I'm very picky. Picky eater, picky about my coffee, picky about which stores I'll shop at. All of my preferences are based on little more than my whims. I own it. I know it's weird.

But, this has drawbacks. I like to joke that I basically only ever go to 5 places for everything. As a result, the workers at my favorite places start to recognize me and then want to small talk. If there's anything I hate more than trying new things, it's small talk. I know they're not doing anything wrong, and that I'm actually the weird one in this situation, but it drives me crazy. I just want to be the anonymous weirdo who comes in at the same time on the same schedule for the same thing every time. Is that too much to ask?
