Why must I always have a title?

I just got back from dropping one of my very favorite people off at the airport. I've had such a great weekend and I'm feeling kinda blah now. This, my friends, is what comes from having too much fun; from staying up way to late, getting up way to early (thanks son), drinking too much wine and talking so much that you are pretty sure you could just not speak for three days.

I have a lot of stories too tell. Not so much from this weekend, because that was mostly catching up. Those stories, you all have heard. No, more like stories from my childhood. I'm working on one right now, but I swore to my kids that we'd go ice skating this morning. They go back to school Wednesday, which is not a day too soon.

Until I get the chance to post again, I have a question for you you laugh at people in your head who are so retarded in a coffee shop? You know the ones, the lady who says she wants a short coffee, when it's called a tall or small? The same woman who will repeat it six times, just so the guy hears it? (Like my four year old does, when I tell her no.) NO, I SAID THE SHORT COFFEE. Like he's deaf or something? Which of course he's not, he's just wanting to make sure he gets it right. Plus, he was holding up the dam cup.

Or the man who orders a medium soy macchiato with a shot of vanilla, no make that an extra pump of hazelnut, or maybe mocha. Maybe all three, that sounds great. Extra foam, but no whip cream and um, can you please make that a decaf? Really, what the heck are you drinking? Do you even know? If not, please leave, cause the thought of that is making me kinda sick.

The decaf coffee. This alone makes me giggle at people. If you are pregnant and drinking it, well you are a braver person than me. But decaf in general makes absolutly no sense too me. Why in the world would you bother?

Maybe it's just me. But it takes a lot out of me to not laugh at loud at these types of peoples.

LOVE the post title!

Depending on my mood or level of tiredness, I either want to laugh at these people in Starbucks or PUNCH THEM IN THE FACE. So far, I've refrained since I like my Starbucks and want them to let me go back there every day. Yes, every day. SAD.

I'm glad you had a nice weekend catching up with your BFF! :-)

I laugh at people but not at the coffee shop since the smell of coffee makes me yak every where. Just the smell. That's not fair, really. I have to hold my breath in the mall if I walk by the coffee shop.

But I crack up at McDonalds when someone stands there staring at the menu. I want to scream, "WHAT THE FUCK!! It's a McDonalds. Order the Mc - One, Two, Three or whatever. Just not the "fish" since there is no fish in that fish.

That weekend sounds awesome. I has jealous. I want to drink with you, too. ;-)

I laugh at how silly/stupid people are everywhere, not just at Starbucks, and usually just in my head! :-)

I think I probably would laugh at those folks, if I ever visited a coffee shop. Except, we don't have such places here, and it would be ME asking for a "small" or "short" or whatever because I wouldn't know the proper protocol :-)

Can't wait to hear your stories.

The barista at the Starbucks in our terminal at O'Hare and I had a good laugh about the people whose coffee orders take five minutes just to say--the grande half-caf, non-fat, no whipped, steamed not foamed, double shot, extra pump.... Drives me up a freakin' wall.

Oops. I drink decaf in the morning and evening because I like to wake up slow and then at night, I like to be able to go to sleep. But in the middle - that is zoom zoom time.

At Starbucks, I say small, medium or large just because it cracks me up not to go along with their stupid naming system. If they can't figure it out (and to their credit, 99% of the time they are ok), then they are too dumb to be working.

Very good question! Why MUST we always have a title? I could probably shave a good twenty minutes off my posting time some days if I didn't have to think up some silly title!

Best. Title. Ever.

Barista's must laugh their asses off when the coffee shop closes.

I am pregnant and drink decaf and I have a hard time ordering. I will be happy when I can go back to my leaded drinks.

Hi! Just started reading your blog so don't mind me for leaving a comment on a very old post...lalala.

Anyway, I used to think the same thing..."decaf..wha??? Stupid people." Then over a couple of months this past year something happened. I went to being able to drink 4 big, lovely coffees and feel almost no effect, to having one small coffee make me VERY jittery. Sad:( So, decaf helps fill my coffee addict needs without causing a heart attack. Don't judge me! :)
