"Does a frappachino have ice in it?"
Does a dog crap?
"Can I have a cold hot chocolate?"
I was asked this just two days ago, no joke.
"What's in your iced coffee?"
Ice and coffee. Or, at least that's what they want you to think. (There's actually kittens in there too, and maybe some urine.)
"I want tea."
Me: (Customer Service says that I should automatically know what they want, or maybe start rambling on about which teas they have to choose from. But then again, is it really so hard for them to look at the damn menu?)
"Do you have any sandwiches?"
Considering that we don't have sandwiches listed on the menu, or displayed ANYWHERE within the store I would tink they could take a look and find out themselves. I don't know what's going on with other starbucks, but this question in my case is ridiculous.
"Which drink has the least amount of calories?"
Obvousely you're not too worried about your weight or calorie intake considering you came to starbucks of all places, which is well-known for its fatty drinks.
And beside these questions, some other random customer moments:
Two customers order a mocha frap and a caramel frap. They pay for their drinks, take their drink and come back. "This doesn't taste right. It tastes like coffee."
(Me: You're kidding me, right?)
Shift-supervisor: "It's supposed to tastelike coffee! :D"
Customer: "No, it tastes wrong. It's just.. it just doesn't taste right."
My supervisor gives them this deranged psycho-smile and just says "OKAY I'LL REMAKE IT!" in the shrillest voice she can manage. The customer whispered "I'm sorry please don't spit in my drink!"
Or customers who change their mind after you're about half-way making their drink.
"Please don't have a cow, but could you make it soy? Sorry!"
Or this one woman who came in and ordered a drink. She tried to order it so she wouldn't have to pay extra money for the "special holiday syrup", and even carefully explained this to an exasperated barista who tried to explain that what she was asking for was the gingerbread latte, instead of calling it something else with the syrup added in. It was just odd, and funny. Kudos to the woman to try to save some money, but still.. lol.
Or, there was a guy who made me re-make his cappucino four times because it tasted "bitter". One of my "cheerleader" co-workers insisted that I let the shots die. Like hell I did. Finally after the fourth time he asks
"What's in a cappuchino?"
"Oh! No wonder it's so bitter. Could you put some vanilla syrup in it?"
I just thought I'd like to share those wonderful moments along with my internal dialogue.
