Brat, I was more annoyed by the barista herself and the next girl in line! When she said cup of coffee, I would have already felt the situation out and then reached for a medium sized up to put regular ol' coffee in it, with an appropriate amount of room for cream and shit. Let her explore the wonders of espresso online or in a brochure! Hehe. :-)

This is not exactly a comment on the (extremely funny) clip. This is just the thing you started a blog for--an ONLINE CUSTOMER RANT!

Yesterday I was in a Starbucks that I know wasn't yours because I don't think you work in the dim feral branch in the American Airlines terminal at Los Angeles airport. And maybe they make a special kind of dim feral sandwich just for that branch. At any rate, the sandwich in question was a pesto chicken salad sandwich and I am scratching my head wondering how it is possible to make a lump of food so completely absent of flavor or texture. I kept taking bites of the puffy grey-green filling and the puffy grey-beige "bread", straining my tastebuds to pick up anything, anything at all, but all I got was the vaguest hint of freezer burn. And the best part was, it cost me $8.99! As a representative of the Company that sold me this item, I just have to ask you: What up?

Okay. Now you can block me forever from your site for doing this.

I think Starbuck's should go with the same customer service tactic as "The Varsity" in Atlanta (only at the downtown location could they get away with it).

The second you get in line, you hear the cashier say "What'll you have?". My first experience at The Varsity was to witness someone in front of me being asked "What'll you have" and blankly staring at the menu behind the cashier. Less than five seconds went by and the cashier turned to the next person in line and asked them "What'll you have?". The customer stood there in disbelief. Not sure if they ever ordered. I got my food and started eating.

My philosophy is, if you're not ready, don't get in line!!

Ha I love how they portray the guy doing bar as a brainless monkey.
