My DD had an appointment today & she was so good so we went to Starbucks, which we don't do often.
Anyway, Summer likes the Caramel Frap which I ordered for her & made sure to get decaf.
The lady taking our order looked at me weird & said "um you do know that has coffee in it." My response "yes which is why I asked for decaf." She then rolled her eyes & said "but it has coffee in it & you are giving it to your child." I said "yup this horrible mother is giving her 8yr old daughter a bit of decaf coffee, I know major parent fail on my part but I never claimed to be perfect, now can you please give them our cups so they can make our drinks & we can go about our day please."
I am sure there are are mother's on this site that will agree w/the cashier and that is ok your opinion, a bit of decaf isn't going to kill & is not a cashiers job to say anything.
I really don't understand when the world decided it was ok to butt into everyone else's business & tell them how to care for their children. I am not beating my child, abusing my child or harming her in anyway so I don't get why people feel the need to stick their nose in people's lives!
Ok sorry rant over. Not sure why this irritated me so much but it did.
EDIT: Ok I have no idea how someone even found this post to comment on it; it is rather old!lol
Anyway, since it got bumped I did call & speak to a manager. I ended up getting some free Starbucks. I haven't even used all the "gift cards" yet bc there are 2 other coffee shops we prefer; especially since they are locall owned.
The manager was very nice & apologetic & understood the irritation. I don't know if the girl is still working there or not.
