4) "just stick your finger in there, swirl it around a bit, sweeten it up for me."
maybe you should have done it to see what happened?
In the word of comic book guy "worst pick up ever".
i went to a shop once... where they said a caramel macchiato was... shoot... it was caramel sauce at the bottom of the cup... add milk... top with thick capped foam... and then pour the shots down the middle of the foam.
that was the weirdest definition.
but in so much as every other place on earth ever--essentially a caramel latte.
Eric kk said:yeah for sure, that would be my definition
I luuurrrv the weird hand gestures that people make when ordering. It's usually the *$ mafia.
"Can I get 2 pumps of vanilla" [followed by a serious of frantic air pumping motions]
"Can I do a half-caf" [while tilting their hand and head at an angle like a confused poodle]
On a side note, I'm eves dropping on a conversation one of my customers is having with their girlfriend about why they hate organic coffee and why they never tip.
This thread is making me so sad....
My question is how do you maintain sanity, and a "non-arrogant customer friendly attitude" when this stuff happens...
Also I have gotten into a number of stupid arguments over the last few years when I go to a shop and they pull some of this stuff... I don't want to be "that guy" but it just flows out of me...
I think my worst side comes out when I see a Cafe doing a bad job....
3.Though i did not witness it, one of my coworkers was nearly accosted by a little old man who was insistent that his latte have "two blues and a pink" before it was handed to him.
are we to interpret that a starbucks "caramel machiatto" is a latte "marked" with caramel? I have been racking my brain and that is the on GOOD explanation I can come up with. Otherwise I guess it is just to fancy up the name caramel latte. Share your thoughts
