This is a great movie.
What I want to say EVERY SINGLE TIME.
Baristas are paid minimum wage to follow their company’s policies. That includes using whatever terms their company decides on for branding purposes. If you want a frappuccino instead of a frappe, a large instead of a venti, or whatever other thing you wanna call your drink, that’s fine. Your barista? They are paid shitty wages and work shitty hours and have to deal with hundreds of people telling them medium instead of grande, or large instead of venti (which refers to the fact that it is, actually, 20 oz of liquid, meaning you’re being a jackass for no reason).
Your barista isn’t stupid. They know what a fucking ‘large’ is and they know their store’s branding and slang sounds dumb to a lot of people. So how about, instead of being an asshole to a minimum wage worker, you consider why you keep buying $6 coffees instead of making that shit at home.
I’ll say that one more time.
Your barista is not stupid.
They know what a large is, what a medium is, and what a small is.
They also know they can be fired for not toeing the company line. And they can be fired for not standing there and taking the abuse you’re spewing at them.
They are being paid to not fight back. They are being paid to stand there all day and translate medium to grande and venti and large and regular and all while you bitch about the specific words you “have” to use. They are being paid to be welcoming and friendly and nice to you while you call them stupid.
Bitch, I know baristas with Ph.Ds, okay? Back the fuck off.
I can definitely attest to that big comment
I love this entire post, for so many reasons.
One, the original image-set is hilarious, and details how everyone feels about Starbucks’ names for menu-items.
Two, the large block of text details how most people should treat not only baristas, but any someone who works in any sort of customer-service position.
All of this said, I tend to play devil’s advocate, and want to point out the thing that gets under my skin… If I say “I’d like a large coffee”, and they say “Alright, one venti coffee, will that be it?”, I’m fine.
But when the twerp at the window REFUSES to take my order, because I don’t use the SAME lingo as them… the very same thing that the image set makes fun of, actually. It isn’t just the fact that the barista calls it a venti, but throw out the “Actually, it’s”, like they’re correcting him; as if they’re saying “oh, you’re wrong because you didn’t use the PROPER phrase in this establishment”.
I’m honestly sorry for the people that have to deal with those sorts of silly phrases, but that IS their job. If THEY start trying to require I abide by the SAME rules, when they OBVIOUSLY know what I’m saying…. fuck that.
P.S. Most of the time I buy my coffee at the local AMPM, so this isn’t an issue I normally have to deal with regardless. Just my 2cents on the matter.
Let’s go on an adventure.
Summer of Slender.
Who’s with me on a game for a cellphone.
One that is run by your GPS, like Ingress?
One where you have to locate clues around town to discover the mystery?
One where you’re constantly being stalked by The Operator, and in the night, the only way you can see him is with your phone.
….AND THEN YOU RUN FOR YOUR LIFE.
"boys don’t like a girl with dark lipstick"
"boys don’t like a girl with short hair"
"boys don’t like a girl with too many piercings"
"boys don’t like a girl who doesn’t take pride in her appearance"
I D O N O T C A R E
Darl lipstick, short hair, and piercings ARE pride in her APPEARANCE.
….just not “pride” that society conforms to.
Many people believe the “Troll-Face” to be a product of the internet.
To this I say “Nay… twas started by NINTENDO”
The above sprite was from the original StarFox for the SNES. Consider for a moment, then pass judgement….
We all know that Daleks are clones. Now, if they weren’t, and they had to increase their numbers, what would they do?
