    feelings-1.jpg

    This really hurt my feelings and I need to get it off my chest okay? You were like, totally mean to me. I was talking to my bf alright? I like him better than you, I'd rather talk to him than you, so next time could you just wait for me to hang up? Really, the line behind me isn't that long. You didn't have to look so bitchy, I was almost done, I mean, I was holding up my finger, that usually means wait! But you just went on to that next guy, so, like, I hung up for nothing?
    Anyway when you finally got around to me it was like you didn't even want to take my order. I was nice, okay? I know what I want is complicated, so I said it real slow so you could understand. It's a grande vanilla latte with two and a half pumps of the SUGAR-FREE syrup. And skim milk. But I want it extra hot, okay? To like 182.5 degrees. And no foam, I don't like foam. And, you know, the least you could do is double cup it, you know? A latte that hot could hurt me, I have sensitive hands.

    So anyway, when you finally got my order right, my phone rang again and it was really important so I took it. Anyway my bf was RIGHT in the middle of telling me how cute I am when you TOTALLY interrupted to take my money. Like, was I not obviously in the middle of something? You'd think you could take a hint, like, if you tell me my total and I don't answer you'd just wait like any polite person, but no, you like basically yelled it at me, it was so embarrassing. I wasn't about to hang up again, okay? You're not the only one that exists! So fine, I'll give you your stupid money,but, like, it's hard to count change and talk on the phone at the same time, you know?

    Tip? No, sorry, my bf doesn't like me spending money on things I don't need.

    Ahem...You are really cute but need to learn some manners - like most of the other people in line at Starbucks, the grocery store, the bus, etc. See, I am behind you in the coffee line or have encountered people like you as a concierge or in nursing support in a busy ER transporting you to CT. If you want to continue talking to your bf, excuse yourself from the line and finish the call. THEN get back in line. You have a choice: placing a coffee order or continuing the call. Your mother would be happy if you did one and not the other when the barista is trying to take your order. You can guess which one your mother would chose. Peace guy.

    I'm pretty sure it is meant to be satirical.

    Did this actually happen? Could such a vapid person really exist? It seems like a girl with all the "like" sprinkled in.

    Since you brought up 'Baptist' can I tell ya a joke? As an Episcopalian/Anglican, one of my favorite jokes of this denomination is this: When three or four Episcopalians (or Anglicans) gather, there's sure to be a fifth.

    Was at a joint Episcopal-Lutheran service at a Seattle cathedral. The Lutherans were surprised we good Episcies were serving champagne after the service in the parish hall.

    Sorry, but being on the phone at starbucks is like driving in the fast lane on the phone driving 50 mph. with other people behind you.

    You are cute. But you were rude. I always put my conversations on hold when I speak to bus drivers, service people, and others who are in my physical presence.

    I go so far as to take one of my earbuds out when I get on board the bus, and I say "Good morning". These bus drivers get to know you and know quickly if you're somebody who they will stop a little longer to wait for...or close the door in your face with you banging and they are slowly driving away.
