How NOT to start your morning. — A New York Moment
Walk into a Starbucks and order a Chai Tea Latte. Stand in a long-ass line to wait for the barista to call out "Tall Chai Tea Late!". When finally you hear those words you step up to the counter and take your drink and start to exit. Then you hear, "Wait, Miss? Miss?" I turn around and approach the counter again, "What did you order?" the quite large and obviously agitated barista barks at me. "I ordered a tall Chai Tea Latte." The barista sneers, "with soy?" No I say, not with soy. "Then what do you think you're doing grabbing this soy chai tea latte?" I hand the hot cup back to the barista and say, "Well obviously I didn't hear you say SOY, because if I had I wouldn't have taken it." The barista looks at me point blank and says, "I said SOY like ten times". "Ten times?" I ask. "You said soy ten times? Well then, I must be an idiot if you said soy ten times." She glares at me and says, "you've got a real smart mouth". It was then that I pulled out my ninja sword and sliced open her face. Or, I might have said, "Listen lady, YOU started this attitude with ME speaking to me like a fucking child, then you blatantly exaggerate to my face to justify your behavior and I am the one with the attitude?."
And as if by cue the second barista standing near says, "Tall Chai Tea Latte WITHOUT SOY!" I take my drink and thank the second barista. I turn to the first barista and say, "Have super fucking day". And then I set her on fire with my laser vision.

Being a barista is a skill, but not at Starbucks. They're investing millions of dollars in machines that make the perfect shot so all the green apron people have to do is push a button. If they're unskilled labor, they can pay them less.
It was not a matter of skill, only of behavior.
You get swords and laser vision I'm SOOOO jealous. I didn't know that they had a name for those annoying fucks behind the counter
That's a bunch of craziness. I would have gotten hostile with the barista as well.
I found you through NYC bloggers blogring, and I thought I would pay you a visit.
