Unending Little Dramas Of The Coffee Shop

At the Owl Cafe today, what was behind this reply from the customer to the proprietor after an innocent (if silly or pointless) question?

Customer: "Large black coffee for here."

Proprietor: "For here?"

Customer: "Well, not right here. Around here. I'll move somewhere else when I get it."

There are lots of possibilities, aren't there?
