Coffee break- first come, first served (in theory)

Coffee_man_2I’m working in the coffee shop this morning after an early stop for fasting blood work.  I waited in line for my turn to order at the register and something happened that is occurring more frequently recently than it used to.  The barista, wanting to keep things flowing (pun intended) prepares the drinks for the group in line behind me while I am ordering at the register.  These folks then get their drinks while I’m still waiting for him to prepare mine even though I was there first.  This flies in the face of the first come, first served business philosophy and was even more aggravating since there were three in the group behind me while I was ordering for one.  What’s up with that?
