SEATTLE —

Matt Watson says it was all satire, but his anonymous blog about working as a barista and the customers he didn't like got him fired.

The Seattle Times reports (http://bit.ly/12JzCNF) Watson was ousted as the author of the blog "Bitter Barista" this week by another coffee blog, which led his boss at All City Coffee in Seattle's Georgetown neighborhood to fire him.

In the blog, the 30-year-old wrote his boss wouldn't understand "big words" he uses in his tweets. He blogged that he doesn't serve decaf to customers who repeatedly ask for decaf or those who ask for 2 percent milk.

Watson, who is pursuing a hip hop career, says he was just accentuating a small minority of customers that make his job difficult.
