How much sugar is in your sugar free syrup....um
Can i have a Latte with X-F, Yes, its called a CAPUCCINO
"Do the scones have sugar?"
- Yes, they do.
"But, I can't have sugar! I'll just have a coffee cake."
- All the pastries have sugar.
"Oh. I'll have a morning bun, then."
"Do you know what that drink is? It has carmull in it?"
- You'll need to be a BIT more specific.
"It has like the carmull, but you put it on top."
- Still kinda circling the runway.
"But sometimes if you want, they'll put the carmull in the cup."
- I feel like it might help if you try to find a way to make this MORE vague.
"Hahaha, sorry. Um, tell me different carmull drinks you have and what's in them and I'll stop you when you have the one I want."
- You want me to play 20 Questions with you right now.
- Question 1: How about I just make you a caramel frappucino?
"THAT'S the name of the drink I wanted! How'd you get so good at this?"
- I **** off an old gypsy woman, and when I woke up I was here.
Me "hi what can I get for you to---"
Customer "does you CRMF have nuts in it?"
-No no it does not
I had a girl last night order a VBF and her dad was like "Are you getting the hot one or the cold one?"
I told him frappucinos only come cold...
"I pis.sed off an old gypsy woman, and when I woke up I was here."
Lmfao! Ah... life.
^^^That might be the best quote i've read on this forum. It could be a universal tagline.
Is there coffee in the VBF? As I am making it..."There's no coffee in there, right?"
"Can I get a white mocha?"
-"Sure! what size would you like?"
"Uhh Just a white mocha."
-"Alright, but what size?"
-"There are sizes? Ok uh a regular size."
-"Sir, regular is not a size" (I proceeded to explain each size and how many ounces.)
"Yeah, I'll take the regular one."
I typically assume they mean grande, so since he refused to be specific that's what I made. I handed it off and he said "Oh I wanted the bigger one.
Seriously how hard is it to order a size? I must ask 600 times a day, do people seriously just come in and assume we have one size? Or have people really become that lazy that I should decide for you? I usually just give them the biggest size lol if you don't choose I charge you for the most expensive one hah
"Can you make the frappucinos hot?"
Worse is when they just say: "I'll take a grandee mocha Frappuccino, hot."
Do you guys sell soda here?
Can I get a Java Chip Frappuccino hot?
Can I use a Starbucks gift card?
What size would you like? I'll take a regular.
There's no coffee in my VBF is there?
What does the pumpkin spice latte taste like? Um, I don't know...take a wild guess!!!
I had one woman that came in last week through the drive thru...
"I want a vanilla bean"
barista: "sure what size would you like today?"
barista: "Great, see you at the window!"
we get the frappuccino for her...
"uh, I wanted it hot..."
barista: "well the vanilla bean is a cold blended beverage..." before she finished the woman yells
"WELL AT MY STARBUCKS I just say vanilla bean and they make me a hot one!"
after we made a latte with vanilla bean powder in it, turns out she wanted a flipping vanilla latte....people....
Customer: Can I get a venti caramel macchiato with a shot of espresso? (Or sometimes they'll say "double shot")
Me: A venti hot drink actually already comes with two shots of espresso, would you like an EXTRA shot?
Customer: Oh NO, no. That's plenty.
Customer: I want a grande caramel FRAPPE with 3 shots instead of 2.
Me: *Anxiety over explaining the concept of frapuccino roast to this type of customer* Our frappuccinos actually aren't made with any espresso. Their coffee flavor comes from what's called our frappuccino roast *points to pump*, it's kept at the ideal temperature and specially formulated for cold blended frappuccinos, and it still has plenty of caffeine so not to worry! Some customers DO add espresso to their frappuccino, though. Each additional shot is $.75. OR if you'd like extra frappuccino roast *points to pump again* that is only $.50"
Customer: "Okay, so it'll just be $.75 to have 3 shots instead of 2?"
Me: *Over it* Yes. *Makes a CRF with a shot*
Me: *At hand off* Double tall XH latte for....
Customer: YOU FORGOT MY EXTRA SHOT!!!
Me: *Calmly* Nope, I promise it's in there! That's why I said "DOUBLE tall extra hot latte"
Why do you charge for soy in a short? Im saving the company money by getting less........what?
At my place, we have two signs under the Airpot coffee labeling one decaf and the other regular:
"Is this decaf?"
Old place I used to work at was called _____ ______ Coffee and Tea. Lady comes in and asks: "What kind of Toffee do you have?" "Ummm, we don't have toffee." "But your sign says Toffee and Tea!" "No..."
@thanksalatte I got that same pumpkin spice question a few days ago. With utmost sincerity, I told the lady it tasted like pumpkin with spices in it. I was proud of the straight face I kept.
Now that fall is officially here, customers keep asking me if we have eggnog or gingerbread. As I've said to them, it's OCTOBER. I realize the pumpkin release was weeks before summer was over but really?
Also, it wasn't while I was working, but when I first met the property manager for my apartment, he asked me if I liked coffee when he learned I worked at Starbucks. A fair question if I hadn't been drinking a damn cappuccino in front of him. Stupid ****.
Is the pumpkin spice latte like a mocha?
what did i order?
me: excuse me?
what did i order?
me: i don't know. was it a tall latte?
um. i'm not sure. do you remember what i ordered?
me: i didn't take your order, so no.
well... umm... i'll be right back.
~ten minutes later~
oh yeah i did order that latte. but it's cold now. can you make it again? but this time with vanilla. and whip. but iced.
Customer: Could I get a classic coffee cake without an end?
Me: ...I'm sorry; without an end?
Customer: Yeah, like, could I get a piece from the middle of the cake?
Me: It's a small cake cut into six pieces, and all of them have ends.
Customer: Well, could you find one without one?
Customer: Do you have tea VIAs?
StarbucksPrincess: (Stares back blankly) No.... we do have loose-leaf tea in bags though, you just add that to hot water.
Customer: Okay. Thanks. (Walks out)
HOW MUCH MORE INSTANT DO YOU WANT YOUR TEA?????
i once had someone training to be an ASM ask me what syrup goes into a cinnamon dolce latte.........
i have up all hope for them after that.
my old manager handed me an iced chai when i was on bar and said "she wants no water in this." ........
"can i buy a caribou gift card here?"
Me: "John!! Your Venti Mocha is ready on bar!!"
John: "Is this my drink?" ... Really? Your the only one in the store -___-
Customer: "I Want the Mocha cookie."
Me: "Im sorry, thats a seasonal drink, I can make you something else."
Customer: "So you cant make it?" ... No, I only said I can't. Get a hearing aid!!
Customer: "Excuse me, Whats the birthday cake pop made of?".. Really?.. Are you kidding??
Customer: "Are you a REAL Starbucks? Do you make Frapes?".. 0_0 No.. It only says Starbucks outside on the sign and Im only wearing a Starbucks apron and the menu only has a list of Frappucinos.. But no, I dont make them and this is NOT a "REAL" Starbucks..
StarbucksPrincess: VIA for tea is both the saddest and funniest thing I've ever heard. Hahahahaha. Oh my. I love it. Just....no words for how great that is.
SAMiAM - For the MCCF, I usually recommend the JCF w/ Vanilla, since it's the same base...just missing the cookie crumbs and chocolate whip. People usually get that instead.
However, I do see the point of "So you can't make it?" and how ridiculous that question is in response to what you said.
I had a guy come in and, reading his order off a piece of paper, ask for "Two gallons of red-eye"
Me: *blink* "Do you mean... two GRANDE red-eyes?"
Him: "No, it says two gallons"
Me: Oookay, well a red eye is a cup of brewed coffee with one add shot. We do have coffee travelers but we can only put regular coffee in them, and I don't think one is even one gallon"
Him: "Well can I just have two gallons of traveler full of red-eye?"
Me"I can give you a coffee traveler with whatever type of COFFEE you want, but we cannot put espresso in them."
Him: Well he says he gets it all the time here! Two gallons of red-eye!"
He ended up getting two coffee travelers of Pike but insisted that his friend comes in and orders two gallons of red-eye "all the time". I bet he took it back to his friend who was like "WTF I just wanted a cup of coffee with a shot, not two giant boxes of coffee, I'm not paying you back for that!"
