(Legal yaddayadda- My opinions are my own, they do not reflect that of my employers, company, or any of the other employees involved in this situation.)
I'm copy pasting this from a Sbux message board I post on, things that need more explaining will be in brackets.
Had a customer the other day that couldn't wait less than 45 seconds to be helped.
I had just gotten off work, I set my partner drink [free post-work bev] in the line and walked around customer side. In that 2 seconds it took me to walk around, a man appeared.
D was on bar and B was ringing, D had a bit of a line, so B was picking up CBS [frappuccinos/cold drinks] drinks as is our custom. D sees the guy standing there greets him with a smile, says B will be right over to ring him up. (ET: 7 seconds)
B turns from a frappuccino she's making, also greets him. (ET: 15 seconds)
Customer: "Look, I'm just getting a coffee, I've been here for who knows how long." (20.)
B: "Alright, I'm going to be right over, I just need to get some ice in this and put it in the blender." (27.)
B presses "blend", turns around "So what size coffee would you--" (30.)
"FUCK THIS." *storms out of lobby, yells from mall entrance to store* "BITCH!"
Customer proceeds to talk loudly just outside the doors to someone about how "Someone's gonna get fired because they wouldn't fuckin' get me a cup of coffee!" blahblah, carrying on.
Me: "B, did you hear what he said?"
B: "No, what?"
Me: "He's gonna get you fiiiiiired!"
B: "Good. Luck."
(It is at this point that I will let you know that B is the manager.) [Also, this guy comes in all the time and has always been kind of a toolbag, but Jesus.]
A customer (the one who ordered the frappuccinos) at the Hand-off Plane pipes up at this point, "For the record, I thought you were very nice to him."
This was the second day in a row of two incidents in which B had been the "cause" of one of those "I'M DONE WITH THIS PLACE FOREVER!" rants. All for doing what we're supposed to.
I've off-handedly mentioned my many zombie plans here once or twice. For the past 5-6 months, I've been trying to do what I've finally started to do.
Sex Machete is poised to become a compendium of my zombie knowledge. This is knowledge I would like to pass on to you, your friends and your family.
If you trust me, you will survive.
I'm going to keep this journal short, because the goal here is for you guys to check this out. Post comments and questions in the first entry, these questions will go toward later entries.
Please spread the word. Tell as many people as you can think of if you think this is a cool thing. The more people I know are checking this out, the better motivated I'll remain to keep up with regular postings.
I've got some big plans for this, but the internet only works if you have the support behind you.
bit.ly/sexmachete @SexMacheteZe is the eventually more used twitter account for these things.
Tattoos (a girl can dream) Gears of War Sonic the Hedgehog Buffy/Angel Cool funny books (Christopher Moore is my favorite author, find me a similar author and I'll love yooou) Coffee Batmaaaan (nuhnuhnuh nuhnuh nuhnuh nuhnuhnuh-nuhnuh) Random cute shit to put in my hair Bright eyeshadow Craft beer Music Oh. I really need a machete for a project I'm working on for the internet? Too far? K.
Every bit helps. This Extra Life means the world to me. It's something so close to me personally and participating in this, being able to raise money for these hospitals is an incredible feeling. Please.
This is something that's going to seem stupid to a lot of you, but it's something small and quick and it really has the possibility to make mine and thousands of others' job situation a little more enjoyable.
The great thing about My Starbucks Idea is that the company actually listens. If you can just sign up and upvote (perhaps comment if you're inclined to) what Joe has to say, that would mean a lot to me.
You're already on the internet if you're reading this. Why not click those links and do something awesome today? Fin.
P.S. I'll be streaming my marathon on Sarcastic Gamer. There will be a journal up with the deets when I get them.
P.P.S Incentives are still a "go" for Extra Life. I'll do songs, videos, pictures, you name it. I'll do whatever is within reason to get you to donate.
