Another day another I hate Starbucks

Today was a crappy day at work...It wasn't extremely busy but I still hate customers that come to the bar and ask where the sugar is they don't even bother to look behind them.

here are some pointers for customers to have a more pleasant experience at starbucks....

1. Look for the condiments bar before asking where the sugar is.

2. When using sugar it goes in the cup and not all over the condiments bar

3. When cinnamon and chocolate sprinkles are to be used at the condiments bar only.

4. When eating a cookie or other 'delicious' item it goes in the mouth and down your throat, not crumbled up into little pieces and spread all over the chairs and floor.

5. If you happen to spill your drink please don't be afraid to tell one of the 'friendly' employees, they will be more than happy to clean it up for you now rather than find your grande mocha dried and crustified on the couch which has left a huge and obvious stain that really pisses you off every time you look at it.

6. The drink you purchased was quiet costly for you... That five dollars could feed a hungry child in Africa for a few days than to have you only drink 1/3 of it and have the rest poison the sea creatures.

7. When ordering your drink don't say "I want.... Or I need" its just utterly rude a more polite approach could be "can I please have...." Note; manners will get you a nice customer exprerience than being demanding.

8. If the store had 'inconveniently' run out of coffee of the day. Its not ok to scream out "WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU DON'T HAVE ANY COFFEE". We will gladly make you an Americana which is like a regular black coffee, or you could politely leave and go to another starbucks which is less than 10 mink away.

9. If there is a huge line, and you don't know what you want, that will give you ample time to look at the board and decided, there is a great deal of strife when you don't know what you want when you get to the register and there are 50 other people behind you who are in a hurry.

10. If it looks extremely busy you really should just leave and possibly come back later and get fast efficient service rather than wait in line and get angry because your drink is taking too long.

if you are able to follow these simple rules your starbucks service experience will be so much better.
