some of the genius things i heard this weekend from customers at the bux:
"can i get a free drink if my friend works at the coffee bean up the street?"
"is there a way you can make your nonfat milk with less fat?"
"i'm a christian and we believe in charity, so i think you should let me have a free iced tea."
"is there a discount for high school students?"
"how much does a franchise cost?"
"why don't you wear name tags?"
"i swear there's something weird starbucks puts in their green tea frappuccino because every time i drink it i get the runs."
"do you love jesus?" <--ok, so that one i didn't hear first hand. my fellow barista brat got asked that question.
"why don't you sell the starbucks liquor?"
"do you have a microwave?"
"do you card for caffeine?"
"a couple weeks ago my friend ordered the wrong drink for me. can you give me a coupon for a free one?"
i've heard it said there's no such thing as a dumb question. whoever the author of that quote must be a real idiot.
partner rant: why are you soooooo slow? i ranted about you weeks ago, and still you're stuck on the same (lack of) speed setting. how is it humanly possible that you haven't improved in the slightest? how can the phrase "you need to pick up the pace" never permeate through your incredibly thick skull? aren't you embarassed that the newbies run circles around you after two short weeks? or do you just not care? guess who won't be caring when you have no hours on the next schedule?
