Am I expecting too much?

I went to a nice coffee place in town, not fancier than your average cafe and I asked for a dry Cappuccino, because last time I got what I would consider a latte. I was then told that they don't "texturize" their milk there. So I said then can I have more foam than milk? I was told by the perky little barista "Just try it and see what you think."

So I ended up with a Latte with wet foam so they can do their little design on the top. I did not want a latte, I don't like them that much. When I go to an Italian Cafe I don't have to ask for a dry Cappuccino its dry enough. I doubt I'm going back there (there is a supermarket cafe that serves a local roaster down the block), but Did I have unreal expectations? That I should get the drink that I wanted?
