When ShallowGal cannot just live and let live

ShallowGal considers herself open minded. Hell, one of her best friends is a Republican. Another is a size 2 and maintains an immaculate house. ShallowGal loves them just the same.

Then the man in front of her in line at Starbucks ordered a tall vanilla latte + protein, with soy milk, in a grande cup, extra hot.

I'm sorry, I'm too upset to finish. Some people just go too far.

Extra hot? See, this is why I don't drink coffee.

Marinka said...

Oh, I completely understand. Today, the woman in front of me at Starbucks actually said to the barista professional,"is the cinnamon cinnamomy?"

My face is turning red because my Starbucks order embarrasses ME, but that's what I want, so what to do???

PCS Guy here. Is it weird that I take pleasure in ordering a 'medium coffee' when I'm at Starbucks?

Teri said...

I object, counselor! I am a conservative, not a Republican. And, having never ordered from Starbucks (they don't have Diet Coke, she says with extreme distaste), I'm not exactly sure what's wrong with the dude's order. Is it that you don't really need extra protein if you already have soy milk? Or does the extra hotness render such an overdose of protein null and void?


Your Starbucks-ignorant, gun-toting, bible-thumping, closed borders-loving, Diet Coke-addicted, non-Republican friend.

And Teri, to add insult to injury, I was using your starbucks card.

Marinka: Have you ever seen the Starbucks blog? Where all the Baristas talk about the worst customers they saw that day? I'll have to dig it up for you.

Stimey: You don't drink coffee? You have 3 kids! How do you function?

Gigi: You gotta do what you gotta do! I guess you can order quietly but they still shout it out when it's ready.

Reminds of the Bill Maher rule:

"The more complicated the Starbucks order, the bigger the asshole. If you walk into a Starbucks and order a 'decaf grande half-soy, half-lowfat, iced vanilla, double-shot, gingerbread cappuccino, extra dry, light ice, with one Sweet-n'-Low and one NutraSweet,' ooh, you're a huge asshole."

That being said, I always order my mochas extra hot. So who am I to judge???

What? He didn't ask them to hold the foam?
