Observations from a Starbucks Junkie

So this morning in the Starbucks drive through the man in front of me waited in line for 15 minutes and when he finally got to the window it turns out all he ordered was a BOTTLED WATER. Who waits in line that long, at Starbucks no less, for a bottled water? A crazy person, that's who. It took all the self control I could muster to keep from rear-ending him for being so stupid. Who's the crazy person, now?
Then, in the time it took the barista (what kind of ridiculous title is that, anyway?) to take my money and hand me my coffee, she said "cool" 5 times and "awesome" twice. It was kinda cool...and awesome.

Who waits in line for 15 minutes at a drive thru for anything? I don't even wait for a combo meal for my whole family that long without getting really irritable!!

I've always wanted to be the kind of person who could say "cool" and "awesome" and sound, well, cool and awesome while saying it. I guess I should've been a barista. I think there is something inherently cool and awesome about that job.

Wow. A person has to be in a real hurry to use the drive through for a bottle of water. Of course, waiting 15 minutes for a bottle of water probably made him late for work. And it was probably the third time this week he was late. And he probably got fired. And as he packed up his office he saw the bottle of water sitting on what is no longer his desk and threw it out the office door only to hit a woman who was passing by in the head and knocked her unconscious. So after she comes to (in a hospital) she decided to sue him.

All because he couldn't go to a gas station and get out of his car to get his bottle of water. So sad.

Sadly no it is not photoshopped. I felt disgusting taking a pic with my camera phone but it was too unreal not to. It's gone today so either someone removed it or it's tail rotted off and fell.

Maybe the guy just really likes bottles of water.

Crazy people! Waiting in line that long is crazy not to mention ordering bottled water from starbucks - like it is "special" water or something!
