Just as a heads up, this is a troll ask. I and several other barista blogs have gotten this ask before. Under anon and…
What the fack? What is with trolling baristas? You assholes torture us enough in our daily lives, can you please get the fuck off my blog no? thanks.

MCCF is the bane of my fucking existence.

I usually laugh when I am reading things, I can relate with basically everything you post. Keep it up and keep being one of my favorite blogs ❤️❤️
Thank you <3
And congrats on escaping!
exxpelliarrmus said: jfc I love your blog! I wanted to share some of my pet peeves, incase they match up with any of yours. drive thru customers that blatantly ignore you when you ask them to wait. customers that think it's ok to order 22 drinks in drive, like it will save them any time at all (literally with a total of 107.40). drive thru customers that immediately start shouting "HELLO?!" "ARE YOU READY?!" when they get to the speaker box. drive thru customers. drive thru customers.
ALL OF THIS!

This just made my night :)
lynburning said: Ahh, this blog is great. I work at Tim Hortons, not Starbucks, but I can relate to so many of these posts! <3
deadfromthewaistdown said: I'm so happy I found your blog! I'm not a barista, but a waitress at a café/coffee shop in Australia and I can relate to SO many of your posts, it's awesome. How do you handle having so many variations of drinks?! Seems so confusing. Anyway, take care and keep up the great posts :)
You are so sweet! Seriously, I have many friends who work as waitstaff and man… the shit I hear. I bow to you lovely folks.
Remembering drinks sort of just gets hammered into your brain, probably the same way you are able to remember names for certain food items. It just sticks after a while.
Anonymous said: I know that I may sound like an idiot but are frappes hard to make? If they do, I feel really bad for ordering them all the time.
They aren’t hard to make, they just take extra steps that sometimes can be obnoxious.
Nothing grinds my gears more than someone ordering something off the secret menu, by name, during a rush, without a recipe.
Basic fraps are by no means an issue, it’s when you order one with pain in the ass modifiers, or order 8 venti Frappuccinos in drive-thru that we start getting a little irritated. Don’t do those things.
Hi, I don’t see the secret menu up there? Can I get a copy?
Literally every time I have to be on front register.
