A couple days ago I was working the drive thru window at Starbucks and a car pulls up.
“Hey there, how’s it going?”
“Oh it’s good. I don’t know what I want.”
“Do you have any Christmas flavored lattes?”
Like a Douglas Fir flavored latte? I had to turn my headset off so I could literally laugh aloud.
My coworker got on the headset and asked, “Well, what does Christmas taste like to you?”
Meanwhile I shout (not into the headset), “Yes! We’ve got one that tastes like Douglas Fir and is filled with glitter!”
My coworker calls out, “I’ve got a cup of anxiety for you because your parents are in town and you’re not finished cleaning!”
We spent the rest of the afternoon coming up with Christmas “flavors” while our dear confused customer purchase a plain-old-peppermint-mocha.
I told this story to my roommate and she says, “Yeah, it tastes like sugar and spice and every thing nice!”
“No, no Rachel. That would be a little girl flavored latte. She was looking for a Christmas flavored latte!”
Side Note: Mad props to anyone who knows how to do latte art!
