We hate you because you expect commission level service at a minimum wage price.

whywehateyou:

We hate you because you bring in coupons from 2011, 2012, 2013 and claim that you just forgot you had them and then get pissed off we won’t honor it.

We hate you because you tell us ‘wow it must be awful to work on [enter holiday here]”. We are open so because people like you shop/pretend to shop on holidays.

Anonymous said: This is random, but I found this on another Medblr and thought it would be interesting to ask from a nurse's prospective!: What Starbucks drink represents what kind of nurse?

nursegif:

Oh my gosh. This is one of the most unique questions I’ve ever heard. Also, my classmates and I had a blast figuring this out.

DISCLAIMER: These are meant to be funny - I do not mean any offense and I am aware that there are a variety of personalities in every specialty. If you have any additions or funny combos, message me!

Passion tea - (pink, light, fruity/sweet) OB nurse 

Vanilla bean frappucino - (sweet, frothy, filling) Peds nurse

Vanilla latte - (generally good, medium flavor) Med surg nurse

Espresso - (strong, bitter, full of flavor) ER nurse

Americano - (just as strong as espresso but not as intense) ICU nurse

Red eye - (shot in black coffee, very strong, unique) Flight nurse

Pumpkin spice latte - (comforting, sweet, classic) Hospice nurse

Skinny vanilla latte - (medium flavor, no extras) Dermatology nurse

Black coffee - (strong flavor, no unhealthy additives) Bariatrics nurse

Decaf coffee- (no caffeine, full taste) Cardio nurse

Hot chocolate - (sweet, reminiscent, comforting) Gerontology nurse

Milk steamer - (enough said) Lactation nurse

Chai - (comforting, warm, with a bit of spice) NICU nurse

Green tea - (antioxidants) Oncology nurse

Soda - (new, untested, novel) Travel nurse

Anonymous said: Someone ordered a java chip frappucino with an extra shot, upside down today. I asked what he meant by that and he just said "just make it all upside down." I asked if that meant he wanted the whip cream on the bottom or something and he told me a jcf doesn't have whip cream? I'm really confused? Does this make any sense at all or am I just stupid?

That makes no sense whatsoever.

Anonymous said: Hi, I'm a barista from the NE region. There's a store that just had about 7-10 people quit in response to a new manager being hired on. I've worked away from my home store for a full week, and I'm slated to go back and work this store again next week. While I love my home store, my shifts, my coworkers, etc... I feel like this is a window of opportunity to move up in the ranks. Should I stay with my home store and try to move up there or transfer to this store that needs help and move up there?

bitchybrrista:

Honestly, it’s so hard to move up the ladder at Starbucks lately, I think you should try to transfer to the other store if you feel like you’d get better opportunities. You can still see everyone from your old store.

Yeah, but if that many people quit that might be a sign.

Our DT, every day, more than fives times a day, the customer passes the speaker and comes to the window to order. As I kindly take their order at the window, I then tell them “Just letting you know in the future, you passed the speaker to order.” which then they laugh and go “Oh my god, I am so…
