Foam or cream?

"Foam or cream?" is the question when ordering cappuccino here in South Africa.

To which my response is "if I wanted a coffee with cream in it, I wouldn't have asked for a cappuccino."

I live in South Africa and I had no idea about this cappuccino issue until you came along. I used to drink coffee or rooibos tea (flavoured water?) when I grew up. The first time I heard about cappuccino was as a teenager in a restaurant and the Waiter would always ask whether I want it with foam or cream!

So thanks for educating me in matters relating to system requirements as well as cultural requirements!

Maybe I should send you some rooibos tea...
