Today was a day of really awful people. They were rude. inconsiderate. and basically scum. Working with the public is bringing me closer and closer to hating the human race. Today I had people blowing smoke in our faces in the window. A high customer... enough said. Another dumped a bunch of trash on our drive thru counter and drove off. I was addressed as "hey you" "EXCUSE ME" (the ghetto i am better than you one. not the polite one) and a noise that deserved a cough drop. I have a name tag. I have a name. I damn sure don't have a tail or fur so I KNOW You did not just snap your fingers at me for attention. 

A guy came on the floor and asked all the women "why are ya'll PMSing.... jeeze cheer up" an hr later I was on lunch and he came in the back and said "fuck this. fuck this day. fuck these people" HA yeah how's that PMS treating you sweet pea? 

Long story short. This is why you don't piss off a barista. At the end of my patience this ..... woman snapped her fingers at me and said "Well I CHANGED MY MIND. I WANT A QUAD NONFAT LATTE." This is after I baby-stepped her through an order that took 5 minutes. So I replied "why yes ma'am I'll take care of that myself" I walked over and put whipped cream on the bottom. I put whole milk in the steamer, and I gave her a quad shot.... of decaf. I stirred it all up and handed it back to her with a cheerful "I hope this helps your day and keeps you going! have a great one." Every single barista cracked up laughing when she drove off. It was small. Petty. But damn it was nice. 


PS: 

no no no no no. We will NEVER EVER EVER give a customer caf when it's for decaf. that's a health hazard. Some have health /heart problems and can't have the caf. :) That's a line we don't EVER EVER Cross.

I worry people are giving me caff when I ask for decaf. This didn't help.

Hahahahaha! I can deal with that. It's the workers who feel to put their bodily fluids in stuff that sicken me. I am always nice to fellow co workers.

You got DECAF'D biatch!



I am a barista, but for an independent cafe.. Sounds like you work for Starbucks? That sucks.



Ive only decafed one person and I cant remember what it was for- but I just remember it was fucked up enough for me to actually decaf someone.
