If I ever see any of you in public, the code is “I like your shoelaces”
that way we know we’re from tumblr without revealing anything
I’m just going to say this to strangers until i find a tumblr person
must keep reblogering!! Im going to be so suspicious if any one tells me this now!
Remember the answer is: I stole them from the president.
For angrycashierchick, the answer should be, “I stole them from David Tennant while eating a bucket of fried chicken,” lol
Go fuck yourself with a cactus and without lube.
Just because I work at Starbucks doesn’t mean I’m not a barista. I’m going to guess that you’re likely an uppity hipster who recently got a job at a local cafe and now suddenly think you know everything about coffee. So allow me to learn you a thing.
Starbucks is the most recognizable name in coffee in the country. When we alter anything on our menu, it becomes national news. Sure, our machines are automated. You would need automated machines too if you were doing more than 150 transactions in a half hour at peak. We operate 20,000 stores in 62 countries. X
Our brand becoming what it is now has increased the push for “premium” coffee products from 3% of a country-wide market share to more than 25%. X
We spend the least on advertising of any food competitor, and yet hold some of the highest profits. How could that be? Because Starbucks is built for efficiency and consistency. We introduced the concept of “barista” to the United States and nearly single-handedly created the idea of “coffee culture” in a country that hadn’t quite gotten there yet. X
Starbucks also was one of the first companies to offer benefits to part time workers and created a company culture of togetherness. And have we lost our way? In some respects, yeah. But am I going to let you sit there and disparage me or the partners in this company who work their asses off every single day. FUCK. YOU.
🙌🙌🙌 a fucking round of applause to this badass bitchin partner.
Lemme see if I can explain Frappuccino hate without writing a novel.
It’s not so much that they’re hard to make (they aren’t) or that it’s a pain in the ass to make them (it is) but that there’s no good way to work them into a drink making rhythm.
Corporate seems to have this idea that a hot bar and cold bar can exist simultaneously within easy reach of each other and flow together perfectly with only one barista making drinks.
I’ve worked in 7 different Starbucks stores (covering shifts. Im not so flighty as to have moved 7 times) and a Joe Muggs coffee shop and havent ever seen a cold bar set up in a decent, easy to use manner.
So when you’re the one making drinks and you get a frappuccino order, it pretty much means you have to stop making hot drinks all together, make this one fucking frappuccino and then try to pick up where you left off on hot drinks.
It’s like trying to road trip somewhere but every time you get into a good driving pace, your fucking passenger has to get out and pee.
This is the most beautifully explained hate of frappuccinos I have ever read.
