The best part of the barista service here is that you tap out your order on a screen and then wait for the barista to produce it.
Once you've finished your order, the screen announces the estimated delivery time.
It's almost as good as those Japanese beer machines - in fact, better at this hour of the morning.

We didn't take the photo (Wikipedia) but saw this amazing machine in action sliding the cement barriers from one lane to another as we drove over the bridge.
What a way to adjust the number of lanes in each direction for the morning and evening rush hours!
Look up "barrier transfer machines" or "zipper machines." We learned to our surprise that they are also in use in Montreal, New York, Philadelphia, and San Francisco, among other world cities.

To make a long story short, we're at Nadi Airport waiting to board a flight at 3:00 pm that should get us to Auckland an hour earlier than originally planned.
All this is after a number of phone calls, a hasty check out, and a rather intense 2 1/2 hour drive to return our rental car before being driven to the airport.
We promised a short story so...
All's well that ends well.
