As New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Arden eased the country’s coronavirus lockdown measures, several people went straight to fast-food restaurants for celebrations. Though the country has zero domestic cases of COVID-19, people are still taking all kinds of precautions to keep themselves safe. A coffee shop owner also came up with an ‘innovative’ idea to serve beverages while continuing with the social distancing measures.
A video of the coffee shop serving beverages using a piece of lumber has taken the internet by storm. In the video, that was first shared by a local media portal, one can see the server placing the coffee cup on the wooden plank and then sliding it to the customer on the other side. The cafe owner has been lauded for his ingenious idea by several netizens. Take a look.

With more than 41,000 views, several netizens on Twitter have called it the ‘mother of invention’. While some users found the idea creative, others also wondered if it was practical to balance trays on the lumber. One internet user also wrote, “ someone would spill their coffee on themselves (their own fault) and then sue the business”.

This is clearly meant as a joke. You can't keep tray balanced if loaded with other stuff.— Amine Marref (@AmineMarref) April 28, 2020
