I Don't Want a Vente Mocha Shakalaboom Anything from Starbucks
December 2, 2015
Why did I just leave Starbucks in Stamford Connecticut @ Exit 6 in a semi-pissed off state? Well I'll tell you.
I don't speak Starbucks so I foolishly thought good old American
English with a Northeast dialect would see me through this second foray
into Starbucksland. WRONG!
I asked for a large hot chocolate
with whipped cream. He said vente mocha? I informed him I did not speak
Starbucks and repeated Large Hot Chocolate with whipped cream. He said
blah, blah, blah. I said yes.
The price was higher than my last visit so I asked, 'Is this a large hot
chocolate with whipped cream?' Mr. Headphone order taker comes over and
wants to spend the next few minutes telling me I ok'd his understanding
of my order. I bantered for a few seconds before cutting him off at the
knees by stating loudly I ordered hot chocolate and again I don't speak
Starbucks. I was amazed that he seemed more concerned with proving
that I ok'd his Starbucks jibberish than getting me my hot chocolate.
Back to Donut Delight where small, medium and large are suffice to
order a drink with my non-vente-white-squirt-of-caramel-shakalaboom
talking self can be served quickly at a much cheaper price.
