Starbucks PSA

Just a short rant to begin the day:

Note to Starbucks Employees, 35th Street and 7th Avenue:

It is inadvisable to install a completely new crew in one of your busiest locations during morning rush hour. If the guy taking money does not know the touch screen, or cannot count money, open up another register. It is not in any way, shape or form acceptable to wait over 10 minutes with only 2 people in front of you at 7:35am for a simple Grande Drip! Seriously, when the line starts creeping out the door, it is time to relieve the poor bastard! When your regular customers are having strokes, it is time to relieve THEM.

Rant over. More later.

I couldn't agree more!

Not a good start to the day!

Oh I can't stand that either.
Btw, did you see any young kids going to Starbucks? Of all these years I haven't seen any kids, only working folks buying coffees! But apparently Starbucks say teens and children are part of market base.

A moment of pity, please for the poor cashier. Good way to make sure the "Arid Xtra Dry" is working...

I drink machiattos - and had this very experience last Saturday morning - with the cashier, the guy making it, the manager.... sigh. I'd change my drink but I feel so cool when I order it! ;)

Rebecca said...

Sorry, Kate, you are right. He must have been 'bout ready to break out in hives! But dang, his manager left him out to dry.

Hi, Claudia. Thanks for stopping by. I've never had a machiatto. Got only as exotic as dopio espresso or a triple shot grande cappuccino.

Soul, the day is going swimmingly now, thanks! Be over to your world shortly.

Creative, ah, yes. Maybe next time I will remember my flask of Jamisons...make it an Irish coffee, if you please :)

Hi, World! Once I actually DRANK my coffee, things were looking much brighter!

Amen to that! Last thing you need at 7:30am!
