I understand not all Starbucks are equal. But I’m lucky enough to have a fantastic Starbucks store in Greer.
Here’s how it went down the other day:
Was REALLY hungry but wanted to stop at Starbucks because I was on my way to the Toyota dealer to inspect car because unlike Penny from Big Bang Theory I don’t procrastinating on checking out my car when the maintenance required light illuminates, and I knew there’d be a wait for car inspection and I wanted good coffee while I waited. Anyway, I swung by my favorite Starbucks and walked inside.
I was surprised how dead Starbucks was which made me happy because usually it’s super busy. Anyway, after checking out the bakery case I finally made my decision.
Mr. Barista: Hi, how’s it going?
Me: Good, good.
Mr. Barista: What can we get for you today?
Me: A Venti Americano and…um…a ham and cheese sandwich.
Mr. Barista: Do you want the breakfast sandwich – or we have a Panini.
I hadn’t seen the Panini.
Me: The Panini, thanks.
Mr. Barista walks to the back, fetches the Panini and pauses as he looks at me.
Mr. Barista: It’s got mustard, is that okay?
I give him a beat as I think.
Mr. Barista: I wasn’t sure if you liked mustard.
A decision was carefully calculated after thinking about future-me.
Me: You know, thanks for asking. Better make the breakfast sandwich.
Mr. Barista: Sure, no problem.
Me: I like mustard, just not with my coffee.
Mr. Barista: Yeah (laughs) it’s like would you like a hamburger with your coffee?
I laugh, he rings me up, my Americano is delicious and I was very satisfied with my sammich.
I don’t know why I found it so funny, but it was 🙂
