Holy crap!

Two o'clock rolled around today and I was dragging a little, so I thought I'd go get some coffee and a little fresh air on the way to Starbucks.

There were two ladies in front of me. (Stage One anger level) They were finding it quite difficult deciding on what to order, but both settled on something that takes longer to order than it does to drink. (Stage Two anger level) The ensuing argument about who was going to pick up the check. (Stage Three anger level) Apparently the pastries at this particular store are passed the expiration date, so they are giving them away (another decision for the lovely ladies to make.)

Finally I ordered my simple cup of coffee, black. I must have looked VERY pissed because the cashier told me that she was sorry for the wait and that this one was on the house. On the house? At Starbucks? For a long wait?

I have now officially seen it all.

I love Starbucks! I especially like the ones with a drive thru... they seem to go pretty quick.

How goes the training? I'm with SFG... more pics, please!

Oh, and for the record, I very, very rarely have an unscheduled "movie day." If I show any kind of video in class, you can bet I can tie it in with literature! (I don't have "free days" either! I'm a witch!)

You're right. You must've looked VERY pissed. Like you were fixin' to do something irrational.
