Anyone else feel like a complete tool when ordering at Starbucks? ...Or is it just me.
"I'll have a grande, non-fat, no whip, peppermint mocha, extra hot." Just typing that out, I feel like a pompous dork.
It always makes me think of You've Got Mail during one of the email voice-overs (courtesy of IMDB):
"The whole purpose of places like Starbucks is for people with no decision-making ability whatsoever to make six decisions just to buy one cup of coffee. Short, tall, light, dark, caf, decaf, low-fat, non-fat, etc. So people who don't know what the hell they're doing or who on earth they are can, for only $2.95, get not just a cup of coffee but an absolutely defining sense of self: Tall. Decaf. Cappuccino."
Doesn't mean I'll stop ordering them anytime soon, but there will be a part of me that will cringe every time.
