Stop writing on your fucking Starbucks cups. No barista wrote “you’re beautiful” on your cup. You did.
Sincerely, a barista
One time I ordered a coffee, and neglected to mention that I wanted it iced, because I don’t really like hot beverages. You know what I said to the barista? Nothing. It was my own fault I ordered wrong, simple as that
"As baristas, we respond to your energy. It goes both ways. If you come into the shop with a smile, we’ll greet you with one too. If you’re sullen, we’ll subconsciously match your mood. If you’re acting like you’re on crack, our hands get shaky. We’re good at reading people, and we try our best to appeal to every customer that comes in. So whenever you think your barista is being a bitch, it’s probably because you are too."
