honestly, I don't hit on people at work, one because I am just awkward and end up saying something stupid and fast like "ihaveacathernameisaliceilikecoffee.FOOD!okaythanksbye!"
but I think it is hilarious that when I pour hearts into guy's drinks they all think that I did it JUST for them, and that I have a crush on them. I had one guy that I poured a mach for who actually said "Um, really? I have a girlfriend. Kind of inappropriate."
I once had a girl leave a note in the tip jar that read something like "call me sometime" with her phone number and a reminder that she was the cute girl that ordered so and so latte. I never acted on it but I did initiate conversation with my current gf of 2 yrs by pouring a heart in her mocha and just writing HI in the middle of it with chocolate.
A friend of mine met his girlfriend by pouring her a cappucino with a blank surface an then he just wrote his phonenumber on it with chocolate syrup. They're still together so i guess it has some potential :p
