Ordering Coffee this Morning at the Starbucks Drive-Thru Window

I'd like a 20 oz. (fuck if I'm going to say Venti)--one black and one with a shitload of half n' half.

Uh . . . .

Prolly fried that cat's pretensious circuit... I go in and ask for a 'large' and dare someone to correct me..!

Big Mark,
Yeah, no way I'm saying Venti. I'm American goddammit! Laugh.

Love you! Stay warm.

I think the first time I went to a Starbuck's I even said "What the hell is a venti? Just give me an extra honkin' large."
I hate pretension.

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Jeannie My Dear,
That's why I love you.

did the coffee slingers behind the counters of pretention understand you?


Ms. Moon said...

I always say "venti" with implied quotes around it. I can do that. I'm an actor.

Ha! I refuse to use their dumb coffee lingo too. A small is a small, a medium is just that and an f'n large is not a venti grande whatever they call it. I love/hate Starbucks.

When my bf once asked for a small everyone turned & stared for what seemed like an eternity.

Jill said...

Could not agree with you more on the Venti thing. I always say I'd like a large and they they sass back "a venti?"... don't they know what large means? Cracks me up that there are other people out there that can't stand their lingo either.

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Ms. Moon,
That is funny as hell. I'm going to do that next time.

That's too funny.

Yeah, they are pretentious motherfuckers for sure.

Love to all, and thanks to all for the comments!

HAHA!!! I refuse too, I always say " Give me the largest one you have" The cashier always says, "a venti?"
Stay Strong SB, and thank god for Coffee, how would we make it through otherwise?

Amber Elise,
I could't survive without it. At all.

Love you. Have a great weekend.
