What is this, UNO?
Firstly I apologize for the poor blog layout in the past month. Apparently Blogger switched over to Google and took some time to getting all the bugs out. But now it's looking good...thank you Google for making the world a better place!
Anyway, so now that the gingerbread latte is back at Starbucks (i swear they put nicotine in these things they're so addicting!) I've been temporarily lifting my boycott at Starbucks. Gingerbread and the Cinnamon Dolce latte are the best drinks they have...although at $5 per Venti (large) you'll go broke in a day. Anyway, the last few times I've ordered, I wait patiently at "the bar" for the coffee and everytime without fail, 10 other people get their coffee before I do. I mean, some are easy than others...but this woman today who wasn't even on line when i was...at least 10 people back, got her Gingerbread Latte before I did. The guy handed it to her, knowing full well i was waiting for the same...she was like oh i'm sorry, you were here first. Out of kindness I let her take it...and had to wait 4 more coffees before mine came along with a half hearted apology. I mean, this is at least the 4th time in a row that's happened to me...luckily i haven't pulled a Michael Douglas in Falling Down yet.
Anyway, I know I'm not a busty blond with my tits hanging out, nor a curvy latina with tight asshugging jeans, but dammit I pay $5 for a fuckin coffee, the least you can do is serve it to me before 20 other people get theirs. It's unreal. I mean I wait my turn, stand aside, smile, say good morning to people, and I still get screwed. Doesn't matter who's serving me...guy or girl. It's like they say, let's make this poor schmuck wait and sweat it out a bit. Like I'm playing Uno and I keep getting skip. Or someone hits the Reverse before my turn. I mean the only reason I'm drinking your fuckin coffee anyway is it works better than Ex-Lax. Seriously. Try it sometime. Unless maybe that's why mine take so long...they could be tainting it. Hmm...Fast Food Nation the movie is coming out soon...let the consipiracy theories begin!
