C is for Coffee or ....

Today is Sue's last day with our group. She's a traitor and is going to another firm. Of course, this is just an excuse to have a farewell breakfast. So we all trotted down to Cinnabon for cinnamon rolls on steroids. Seriously, these things are humongous. And positively delicious. If you could hear us all eating them now, you'd think you were watching a triple X film what with all the moaning and groaning that's going on.

But I digress.

The real reason I'm writing this blog is to kvetch about the dumb blonde customer at Starbucks. Girl needs to be bitch slapped.

We all placed our respective orders and walked over to the pick-up area. Sue and I got our Tazo Chai Lattes (I've given up coffee for Lent ... which is a whole other blog!) and Frantastic got a tall white chocolate mocca (with whip!!). Robi gave up Starbucks and Timmies for Lent (Robi's my hero; me -- I'm not that strong!), so she just came along for the ride.

So we're standing and waiting. And there's this ditzie blonde yakking away on her cell phone. She standing waiting for her coffee holding the lid in a napkin. Yak. Yak. Yak. Coffee Dude calls out "Tall Extra Hot No Fat Vanilla Latte". No one moves. I lean over to Frani. "I bet it's hers and she's so busy talking on her cell she's not paying attention."

Again, Coffee Dude calls "Tall Extra Hot No Fat Vanilla Latte."

Again, no takers.

Several seconds later, The Ditz holds her cell phone away from her ear. "What are these?" All snarky and waving her hand over the few orphaned cups of coffee on the counter. Coffee Dude tells her what they are.

And then ...

She takes her lid, using her napkin as a germ barrier, and snaps the lid on her coffee. And walks away, still yakking on her cell.


Oh no she di-in't!!

Honestly, Bitch!

Oh yeah, I loathe rude people. I have blogged about how rude it is to yak on your flippin' cell phone in public and just ignore the servers.....SO rude. Some folks are so ignorant.....So, does your hand hurt from the bitch slap you gave???

I love having my cell phone for emergencies, but I hate talking on it otherwise. It aggravates me to see people doing the zombie shuffle in the grocery aisles while yakking, driving while yakking, etc. I even get a bit perturbed if I'm out (shopping, whatever) and my cell phone rings! I always think, "I'm busy over here!" LOL.

Some people are amazing. I will never forget being in line at a Hardees fast food place in Iowa (which dates back to circa 1991) and the adult lady in front of the middle school age me handed her gum to the cashier and asked the cashier to throw it away. A. Gross. B. There are trash cans all over the place because its a fast food place. And C. Freaking gross.

I hear ya sister!!!

I had a blonde go through drive-thru while on her cell phone (as you know I work at Tim's) I say welcome and she says just a minute and proceeds to talk...

Is she asking me to wait or talking to me??? (sorry but my tunnel vission through the speaker isn't working right now)

Then she drives up to the window and talks on the phone the whole time (no eye contact with me) while handing me her money and taking her stuff and not once says boo to me!

Then she sits at the window!!!

I open the window and say 'is there anything else?' and she finally looks at me and says with a seriously annoyed tone "where's my stuff?!"

With a smile on my face and in my calmest non sarcastic vioce I say...

"I know you're pretty honey but it's in your car, have a nice day!!!"

I close the window and turn around.

Geez people get off the BLEEPN phone.
