Well Whattaya Know?

I’ve won an award! Many thanks to The Restaurant Manager for bestowing upon me the ‘LOL Award’.

Now ordinarily I’m not a big fan of anything resembling chain mail, but this cheered me up the other day 😉 Not to mention it seems like a really neat way to get the word out about some of the blogs I’ve been following. So here are the rules of the LOL Award:

Rule #1: Link to the person who gave you this award (in a post, or in your sidebar, wherever you have this): See above.

Rule # 2: Pass the award along to seven other people who post about at least slightly amusing things and tell them (by emailing them or commenting on a post, etc.):

1. Fuck My Table
2. Do You Do That at Home?
3. The Bitchy Waiter
4. The Restaurant Manager (Now you have four!;-)
5. Gratuity Not Included
6. Red Lobster Blog
7. 147xxxx (New comments have been disabled for this blog, seeing as it hasn’t been active for quite awhile, but there are plenty of good Starbucks related stories to read!)

Rule # 3: Say seven things about yourself that no one knows (or at least you think no one knows).

1. I am addicted to Medical dramas. You name it, I watch it: Grey’s, House, ER, Nurse Jackie, and Private Practice.
2. I love going out to try new foods by myself. Today I went out to lunch and I ate a delicious Vietnamese sandwich with liver pate, cilantro, BBQ pork, and cucumbers on french bread, yum ❤
3. My favorite part of my work is steaming the milk. I am obssesed with perfect foam!
4. I have one kidney! No, it wasn’t surgically removed, I was just born that way.
5. I read. ALOT. When I was a kid I used to get in trouble for reading past my bed time.
6. I eat my banana bread with cream cheese. Don’t dis it ’til you’ve tried it!
7. The first thing I plan to do when I finish school is to travel throughout Europe.

Rule # 4: Pass these rules on.

And there you have it!

Hello World!

This is my first foray into the world of public blogging, so I’ll make my first attempt quick and easy, like ripping off a band-aid. Here goes:

About a year and half ago I started working for an evil empire/coffee chain. THE evil coffee chain. You see these stores everywhere, sometimes right across from each other. You guessed it – Starbucks. For the most part I love my job. I love the hours, however crazy they may seem to anyone else. I love being able to start out someone’s day just right. More than anything else, I love that my boyfriend likes it when I come home smelling like coffee beans and the subsequent showering of kisses.

When I first started out at my store I had only worked odd jobs, not many of which required the level of human contact that my job currently requires. So why did I enter customer service? No idea! I haven’t clue what I was thinking! After the joy of a new job subsided, I was faced with the frustrations of dealing with unruly and unkind customers. Granted, not many of my customers can be described this way — but the one’s that do behave poorly, leave lasting impressions. The purpose of this blog, inspired by the tales of other bloggers before me, is for it to be an outlet for my frustrations, and possibly for the entertainment of anyone else out there who might be reading. I welcome you to laugh, to cry, to pull at your hair, and to share your experiences.

More to come…
