auuuuUuUuUuuGghhh i really hate the nicknames (for want of a better term) customers use for our drinks.
london fog? get out! go to second cup with that!
vanilla bean latte? i will put the powder in your latte! it's a latte, you don't get whipped cream! see above!
mochaccino? what in the name of lovecraft is a damned mochaccino. do you want a mocha? a cappuccino with mocha? a mocha frappuccino? if this term is not on the menu do not uuuuse iiiit.
"Sorry, could i get all those drinks rung up separately?"
i could've sworn i saw a "split order" button or something on the POS before. maybe i was dreaming. but yeah sure let me just void this crap because you want three stupid stars. i hope you like waiting while i ring them all through again, & i hope the people behind you like waiting too.
PASSION "FRUIT" TEA. nowhere does it say passion fruit at all where did you crazy people even get this. read.
or ordering a skinny latte. a skinny what latte? people just latch onto these terms because they're catchy. it's like word-herpes. can we call it that? because it spreads easily & will never go away.
this isn't starbucks relevant, but oh how i hate tim horton's bastardizaton of espresso beverages. they use whipped topping that tastes of the plastic bag it comes in & powdered milk or something & it's just, really gross. tim horton's is the mcdonald's of coffee. not even mcdonald's is the mcdonald's of coffee (not that a McLatte would have much more class).
another thing is the my starbucks idea page. i could go on for hours. i hate how people try to be like, all nicely suggestive & use the :) smiley. i would like to smash that smiley face in a metal door, repeatedly. "this is great! it offers this & this, & you could do this too! :)" "i'm sure everyone will love this!(: " this, plus the worst grammar. starbucks customers are not seven year old children; i don't understand why they type like seven year old children.
i will admit there are some good ideas on that page, like the digital rewards one. but the vast majority is just vulgar whining & idiocy.
