rants, tips and tricks from a very hostile barista




this is a blog dedicated to pointless rants, some useful tips, and random facts from a nineteen year old starbucks barista. i created this side blog so i could stop annoying people on my personal. note: i will not tell you my name, personal tumblr url, where i'm from, or what starbucks i work at. i will tell you that i work at a starbucks inside a grocery store - which is in fact a real starbucks i might add - so my experience might be a little different than yours. welp. enjoy?

You know how many times I’ve made a drink decaf because someone was an asshole? Way too many times to count.

do you know what you can add onto an passion iced tea? i've heard people say they add strawberry or whatever, but i'm not sure if they have it... i don't wanna look like an idiot asking for something they can't do

Hmmm, I suppose you could add strawberry onto a passion iced tea, I’ve never seen somebody do that though. I’d suggest going with a passion tea add raspberry syrup. The strawberry that we carry is for the smoothies or strawberries and creme frap, and it’s like a thick strawberry concentrate; nothing I’d want to drink in tea. But who knows! Maybe it’s good!

Another way to get drinks for cheaper:

Again, this is with iced drinks, because they’re easier to get away with.

Order a grande of whatever your drink is with no ice added, then get a venti cup of ice. Poor the drink over the ice. (;

More tips coming soon, I promise.

I just worked a 10 hour day, so I’m a little crabby.

how to get drinks cheaper:

i don’t want to make this one all fancy, because its really frustrating when people do this… but as long as you aren’t doing this in my store, i don’t really give a flying fuck.

if you want an iced venti latte, don’t order it iced at the counter… but after it’s been rung up and the transaction is complete, say, “i said iced, right?” it’ll save you 20 cents for that 3rd shot. not really a whole lot of money, but hey, every bit counts.

if you want any sized iced latte for cheaper, order a (whatever size) iced americano with no water added, then go over to the other counter and put in half and half (breve) or whatever milk you like in your latte. sure, the barista might glare at you, but it’s cheaper. side note: don’t try to be sneaky about it. we know what you’re doing, and we honestly don’t care.
