Saw on your tumblr you work at Starbucks, how is it working there? (i.e co-workers, customers, and going from customer to employee)
As a customer of Starbucks, I didn't notice alot of the things that went on "behind-the-scenes". For example, I never really took the time to learn about syrup and called them "shots" instead of "pumps", which (in hindsight) was a really bitchy thing to do since it only confuses the barista even more. Plus, I have one of the most obnoxious drinks in the world: an iced venti solo nine pump caramel four scoop vanilla bean extra whip extra caramel extra coffee double cupped caramel frappachino. Before I worked at Starbucks, it was worse: I'd order about four or five shots of espresso instead of one.
Basically, now that I work there, I'm noticing that the things that I didn't take the 30-seconds to learn as a customer as seen as really bad "Starbucks-etiquette". I'm reminded of this weekly (sometimes daily) with the random horrible customer that decides to take their anger our at a poor barista for a wrong drink, but I see it as karma. When things like the latter occur, I can't help but feel bad for the baristas' that had to make my drink when I didn't work there.
In hindsight, I wish that I had taken to the time to really get to know more about Starbucks when I was a customer. It would have made alot more sense since it was a daily ritual anyway.
