As someone who writes for a living, I’ve had to take some odd jobs here and there, including as a barista at Starbucks. I can say with utmost sincerity, that for every awesome customer you meet, there are 2-3 absolute idiots who are just too busy screwing their heads into their ass to know where they’re going and what they’re doing. That’s the truth.
And this live-tweeted situation, shared by UK comedian @thisstuartlaws, is pretty spot on. I’ve seen shit like this happen in my little store, and there’s no end to the petty awkwardness and caffeine infused drama.
Pull up a rickety, sticky chair, and listen.
