Worked until 1am last night. Did a Partner a solid and picked up an 8am shift for them this morning at another store. It’s my first time not working in a high volume drive thru store in four months, and despite the four hours of sleep I managed, I feel like I’m on vacation here.
So thank you, Wantagh Starbucks. Because of your chaos and ridiculousness, I can rest assured that if “Black Belt Barista” were a title, it would be mine.
The good part about having traffic court, bright and early, a half hour away minus rain traffic, and having to resolve a third parking ticket you got while you were inside, is getting to do some work at one of my favorite stores right next door when it’s all done. #starbucks #fuckdapolice (Taken with instagram)
frappy hour is approaching too quickly. it’s that beloved time of year where frappuccinos are half off for two hours a day for two weeks, and baristas start to have more nightmares about making them than usual. there was a meeting about it today. we found out that if we reach our goal, we all get starabucks frisbees. and if we come close to exceeding the goal, we get starbucks hoodies.
while everyone was expressing their longing for a hoodie, i was completely losing my shit over wanting that frisbee.
