Coffee Order

Nothing makes me feel moreΒ like a phony adult

Than ordering coffee.

Coffee Order

Can’t explain it.

It just is.

  1. I would feel the same way ordering coffee, mostly because I drink tea. :o)

    I feel the same way! I have a doctorate level degree and somehow standing in front of a barista makes me feel like the world’s greatest dunce. Gah!

    Oh good gosh. Reminds me of when I went to SB and ordered an iced cappuccino…and being told, “we don’t dont do those…we do frappucinos”. Snooty much? Grr. You made me laugh at the memory.

    • Hahahahahahaha, I laughed at “snooty much”. There is a certain chain that has a certain location that I go in and say “medium” or “large” and they always correct me with ‘their’ term. πŸ˜‰

        It’s fun. In fairness, the employees may have been given a script. The first one didn’t follow it. Just for S&G, I did it again at another location. They explained that the frozen making machines didn’t work well after the coffee had been heated and frothed. Still makes me laugh though as does your ordering medium or large. It sounds like I’m bagging on a particular company, I’m not. I wondered where “tall” fit into the equation of venti and grande…especially when tall means small…or it used to.

        • I don’t mean to bag on the company either. It’s more about ‘me’ not being able to speak their language. Though, if I went there more often I would make it a point to do so. It’s just not my favorite coffee place to go to. πŸ˜‰

    ha! you should have a license to do this )

  5. Because you are a tea drinker! LOL!

  6. Haha – that’s good! I almost never drink coffee – I’m a tea drinker. I wouldn’t know how to behave in a Starbuck’s!

  7. That’s probably why I don’t drink it.

  8. I don’t do specialty coffee but I’m sure I’d feel like a country mouse in the wrong city. πŸ™‚

  9. Yes, I feel like such a rebel when I order “medium coffee-black”. Great reactions.

  10. If I want a coffee, i just want a coffee. I do not understand, nor do I wish to understand, all of the hyped, pretentious, belittling, rubbish that they keep inventing. Coffee great, turkish coffee great, anything else – go away!!!!!!

    I loved coffee back as a child, tea was good with milk and sugar, cocoa with marshmallows. My parents allowed us to pour coffee over ice cream and this was yummy! I guess I never stopped loving it, drink like my Mom still does, 3-4 cups a day! Only hers is black.

  12. I kind of feel like a kid when I order coffee because I like the sweetest, frothiest stuff I can get. I’m a coffee wuss, especially since my parents and siblings always drink black. I don’t know how we’re related.
