fun customer stories from today:
woman walks in, stands in line, makes it to the register and when asked her order she gets a blank look and says, "what am i doing? i already had coffee! i don't want coffee now, i want a smoothie!", then walks out.
teenage boy walks up to the register and asks for a caramel frappuccino.
"hey joe - what size can i have?" teenage boy asks his friend.
"whatever size you want," friend replies, then pays for teenage boy's drink.
"that's nice," i said. "not all friends will pay for someone's frappuccino habit."
"well, he's my bitch," friend says. "gotta keep him happy!"
to which teenage boy screams out, "I'M NOT GAY!"
older woman orders a latte and asks for it extra hot.
"well, not super hot, but hotter than regular. but not so hot it will burn me. i want it hot, but i want to be able to drink it right away, not have to wait too long for it to cool down. just make it real hot, but not too hot, ok?"
middle aged customer flirts with male barista making frappuccinos.
"hey, when you get to mine make sure it's not too watery. i like 'em thick." she said and licked her lips. "it's a good thing i don't work here because they'd fire me for sexual harassment." she continues. "i wouldn't be able to keep my hands off your buns!"
at which point male barista went to the backroom to hide.
barista rant: did you know starbucks is not a dojo, nor a public park? so why do you come in every day and ask for a "tai chi latte"? when we tell you the proper name you just shrug your shoulders and say, "as long as it's tai chi i'm happy." next time you ask for your tai chi latte i'm going to start doing katas - reeeaaaallll sssslllloooowwww.
