This is why I roll my eyes hard when people say “burger flippers and coffee pourers don’t deserve $15 an hour”
Unfortunately it is socially acceptable to treat these workers are sub human and it is perfectly fine to treat them horribly and disregard that the are actually, in fact, human, with real human lives and real human emotions and real human thoughts and concerns and feelings.
It’s National Coffee Day. Every year hundreds, if not thousands, of assholes file into Starbucks around the country demanding free cups of coffee. Abusing and berating confused baristas who A) do not know/care that it is “National Coffee Day” B) aren’t giving you shit for free.
Then, I sign in to Tumblr to see this bullshit
I can’t. Fucking. Escape. God. Dammit.
I can’t tell you how many people I had storm out a couple wees back because I told them I couldn’t sell them pumpkin spice yet.
And how about all those people throwing fits because our pumpkin scones were recalled?
"Yeah and I’m going to need to you (__Insert super specific pain in the ass anti standard thing here__) they do it at my Starbucks all the time"
The exact opposite of me in bar.
Is anyone else the weird one out of all their coworkers?
Why does this have so many notes? Holy Jesus!
One of our espresso machines was down, and someone in drive-thru literally got out of their car, walked up to the window, and started screaming at me, and screamed at the person waiting at the window to get out of their way.
Then, instead of stopping to pick up their drink, they revved their engine, screeched their tires, peeled out, and gave me the finger.

Oh man. Oh man. Playbook sucks. But so does my store, so I think we’re kind of just skating by?
And thank you! That just made my day, seriously <3
Anonymous said: to the girl asking about having a crush on your shift- keep that on the down low because if someone cares enough (i.e. some jealous bitch) it could get you transferred. Honestly just give it up now bc you can't even have any kind of relationship working @ the same store unless one of u transfers

That's weird, but I gave him one. Next thing I know he's saying the coffee's cold. I give him a fresh one and go to take the 'cold' one but he goes off like 'can't I keep it?' After arguing with him about it, I finally said fuck it. I can't deal with this shit. I wanted to punch his smug face.
It blows my mind how needy and annoying some people are, yet they have somehow managed to survive this long.
