Seriously. It's so uncomfortable when a customer stands close to the bar, arms crossed, staring at you as you make the drink. You don’t even have to look at them, you can just feel it.
I TRY not to make eye contact because I know if I do they will either glare at me, or ask where their drink is in queue, or tell me that they’ve been waiting for a long time.
Yes. I know you’ve been waiting a while. I am the only person on bar, I can only make two drinks (technically three but that’s against Starbucks policy) at a time, and I only have two hands, and to top it off there’s a huge ass line. You saw the huge line of cups while you were walking in here, and I am working my best to get everyone’s drink out on time.
You asking me where your drink is, only holds me up and makes everyone else wait longer. Not to mention it’s annoying as hell. If you couldn’t wait, or if you’re on your way to work and going to be late, that is YOUR problem. You made that bad choice, now you can either go get a refund and get out, or you can stop going to Starbucks when you’re almost late for work. Not. My. Problem.
Now sit the fuck down and STOP STARING AT ME.
Next Sunday is my last day. I’ve never been so excited to quit something in my life.
The only thing about it that will suck, is me not being able to put new barista stories on your site! Oh, and my team. I will miss them ♥ except for my manager.
