hey. i had a situation happen today at work. a customer comes in and wants me or my bar partner to blend her protien drink for her. bascially it was a bag of protien powder from her home.. and blend it with an inch of water and a whole banana. now.. are we allowed to do that? i said "I'm not sure we are supposed to do that." my bar partner said it as well but we did it anywway. i then was proceeding to tell the customer (some chick who always comes in and i think her gf works in our mall) that we aren't really supposed to do this. she cuts me off and says "well, your store manager and i are friends." what the hell? the nerve! i felt that she was undermining my authority.. even though i'm just a barista. but she does not work at our store. i hope i dont ring her up tomorrow morning.. sicne i have to work tomorrow. i wnated to tell my sm today.. but i never had a chance to.
i thought this amused me greatly. be a barista during the day and be a bartender at night. ha.
there is a 2 week course, 3 hour days from monday through friday either in the day or at night classes for $500 and that's it. however, i can just see my parents laughing at me and/or disagreeing whole heartedly with the idea.
this morning before work.. i aparently tried to hit on my co-worker.. so she says. umm.. what? i told her.. "man. is it hot in here or is it just me?" and she totally twisted my words around. jokingly. i explained to her that i wasn't doing that and i was hot because i hadnt' had breakfast yet. when i got up this morning.. i was in a rush to take a shower and hop on a bus to make sure i had time to eat breakfast at work before my shift started. well, my tummy likes to be fed as soon as i wake up. and i didn't feed it. i ignored it. which it grumbled at me the whole way and i was slugglish getting to work because i needed food in my system. all good now. a cherry yougurt and 3 small vanilla scones later.. my tummy was happy and my tempature was normal till i started work and then i got hot. lol.
bought a LOT of fruit snacks and 3 pounds of almonds (no salt, no seasoning, just plain) for snack at work. i figure a 1/4 cup of almonds and a small package of fruit snacks will hold me over during my 10 min break at work.. till i get off work for real food.. instead of eating free left over pastires from the day before or buying a pastry.
i need to go food shopping. i'm literraly down to two chicken breasts, 4 frozen packages of veggies, oatmeal, canned veggies, a few eggs (that i hope are still good), and a whole lot of fruit snacks and almonds.i have nothing else to eat.

"GHETTO ICED LATTE: In the summer when you want an iced latte, but don't want to spend $5 order an 'iced doppio' which costs $2 and add your own milk. In the iced drinks they don't steam the milk, so you're paying $3 for them to put it into your glass for you."
As a former worker of both an independent coffeeshop and Starbucks, I can tell you that the baristas will notice this, and you won't be so welcome anymore. (aka they'll mentally be giving you a swift kick in the ass). Milk is very expensive.
ah, work on saturday's at the mall is hell no matter if its starbucks or another retail store. anyways...
we have a new shifty named ryan and hes hella adorable. probably gay, but cute nonetheless. well, we have another barista named, ryan, as well that has worked at our store for hmm... 2 or 3 years? i said "hey you" to ryan.. and than "hi, hows it going?" to another ryan.. while both of the guys were standing right next to each other. i thought it was funny and sorta confusing. made my day.
jeni, jason and ian came to visit me at starbucks today! ian is getting so much bigger every time i see him! he took a picture with the easter bunny today. i have to buy a frame and put the picture in. ^__^ i showed my nephew off to my co-workers that were working with me at the time. yay!
as i was getting off..close to when my shift ended.. miles (another shifty) came to "clock" into work. while he was rummaging around re-stocking stuffs.. and i was helping customers on till.. as fucking usual.. well an awkward moment happend and it was cute in my opinion. he was bent down getting stuffs and he was behind me and i didn't know that at the time. as he was still bent down (god i have a dirty mind at times) i moved backwards to get into my till and i bumped my butt into his. LOL. it was fucking hilarious. of course i said "oh my god, are you okay? i didn't know you were down there." he came up with a huge grin and his cheeks were bright red. Haha. he's adorable. he has a gf as far as i know.. but still.. hes cute and i'd totally date him if i had a chance. we bumped butts.. haha.. it was so an accident but it was hella funny.
i took a picture with edward at the mall! now.. what i mean by that is, i took a picture of edward with him as a cardboard cutout.. lol. it's on my myspace page. i love it.
