Noooooo! You're the Good Starbucks!

As you know, I've had more than my share of retarculous run-ins with some less-than-nice employees at Starbucks. I thought that was the whole point of shutting them all down for storewide training. Well, I think the brainwashing is starting to wear off. The good Starbucks I found near my job is slowly morphing into the bad one. Nooooooo!

They are starting to turn over their employees pretty regularly. They're not making the drinks correctly and aren't so nice when you point it out--even if you do it as nicely as possible. Was it all a mirage? I'm so sad. What can you do? How much is enough retarculousness before you call it quits? It's like a messy breakup, but in this case it's definitely them, not me. Like all drug-out breakups, we will NOT be friends afterward.

Don't call it quits. I hate to be brutally honest, but you will suffer more than Starbucks if you end your relationship. Learn to love the imperfections :)

I'd say spill hot coffee on them "accidentally". When I was in Chicago, the baristas were pretty friendly. I even got free coffee a bunch of times!!!!Oh yeah, I forget were in Las Vegas.

If it'll help you to transition, I'm willing to let you pay me $5 to mistreat you and make you crappy coffee.

Okay, with all your encouragement I will keep going. Plus, after I left the post, the next time I went, everything was smooth. I must have been giving them the evil eye or something. Whatever it was, it worked! Reunited at least!
