A funny thing happened on the way to the theater … okay we weren’t going to the theater, we were going to Auto Zone … and it probably wasn’t even funny … but in the early morning light my caffeine deprived brain thought it was funny so I’m going to tell you about it. Also it sort of ties into Things I Love Thursday.
So like I’ve already said we were going to Auto Zone this morning. The starter went on the BMW on Christmas Eve so James is fixing that today and luckily was able to take some time off work to do it. If only every job had paid time off, but I guess that’s what you get when you stay in school for 5 years, anywho, so what better motivation to drag my ass out of bed this morning than “Hun auto-zone is by Starbucks, we can stop there first” That did it, I was up and presentable in about 5 minutes. Now for a little background on our Starbucks trips, as I’m sure you know it’s a fairly expensive habit unless you’re drinking just coffee but I like the seasonal drinks and Starbucks is a treat so today I was totally feeling a Creme Brule Latte Venti of course. To save money James and I usually just split a Venti but we often run into the problem of him drinking it all as I like to savor it and enjoy it. So this morning while waiting in line I told him to get his own, but he didn’t want to so I said “if you drink it all i’ll kill you in you’re sleep” he laughed and the barista thought it was hilarious so when we got our drink there was this nice little note on it.
Breakfast of champions
*Don’t drink past here 🙂
I can’t think of a time when I was disappointed by the customer service at Starbucks, they are always so friendly. When I worked at American Eagle I used to go there almost twice a day and first thing in the morning I could stumble in there half awake (how i drove to work is beyond me) and mumble incoherently and without a doubt the barista would make me something amazing. So the long and short of it I guess is that i’m one of those people that will pay the extra money for the perfectly brewed espresso and friendly staff. Now if only they delivered =)
