cruisyeyes' original post: "I want you to be harsh to me. If you know me by what store I go to, let it rip. I go to the Arizona store at 67th & Beardsley Rd. in the Safeway shopping center. I drive a white Honda Civic and come in around 6 am, ordering an extra hot, extra whip hot chocolate ever time. If you know who I am, tell me my faults, if I am ever too annoying, etc. Just in good fun of course. Ta ta."
For some reason, I am not getting an option to reply to cruisy eyes' post "I am a customer - be mean to me". Not sure why - I have the option to reply to all other posts besides that one. Hence, the necessity of replying in this manner.
Anyway, this site allows people (mainly employees) to anonymously **** about Starbucks. However, your post, cruisyeyes, is asking an employee to "out" themselves by stating that they know you and subsequently commenting on you as a customer. You've listed your store's exact location (which you would have to do in order for someone to definitively state that they know you). Therefore, any employee who comments in such a manner loses a large degree of their anonymity. It probably wouldn't be in their best interest to do so.
That aside, and I'm not a Starbucks employee, I think that you are a narcissistic, self-inflated person who epitomizes the stereotype of a Starbucks customer. I base this opinion largely upon your posts in the thread entitled something like "customers with selective hearing" (not sure of the exact topic title). The fact that just because you are a regular - that you go to the same store multiple times a day and get the same thing - you expect the employees to remember your drink so that you don't even have to expend the minimal amount of energy required to verbalize your order....that makes you the stereotypical Starbucks customer (i.e. a person with self-inflated importance).
I also believe you stated something to the effect that remembering your drink "isn't that hard". If you were their only customer, I would agree with you - it shouldn't be difficult. However, I'm sure that you are one of hundreds. And who are you to make the determination of whether or not something is difficult for someone else? Verbalizing your order shouldn't be difficult to do either...but for some reason, you seem to have a problem with having to do what every other person has to do. The fact that you think you should stick out in everyone's memory is just annoying - you are no more important than any other customer in that store.
You went on to state that the employees know details of your life - hobbies, interests, etc. Am I the only person who finds that to be a bit odd? I found your whole discussion in that thread to be so odd, that I'm remembering it a week or two later. It's almost as if you're looking to fulfill some void by befriending the folks at your local Starbucks. Now don't get me wrong, I go to my own local store regularly and talk a little with the employees there....and I enjoy doing that. But I don't discuss my hobbies, interests, and job. Do you really think that they care? They are getting paid to make your drink and to provide you with "legendary service". The fact that you think that they care about the details of your life makes you quite narcissistic (again, it makes you the stereotypical Starbucks customer).
Actually, the fact that you started THIS thread just feeds right into my opinion of you. Who does that? Does it make you feel better to be the center of others' attention? Even if that attention is negative?
In summary, I think you are the type of person for whom a site like this becomes necessary for Starbucks employees - irritating, narcissistic, self-important, and pretentious. And I fully realize that I've just fed right into your need for attention by replying to your post.
