Dear Mr. Barista

Dear Mr. Barista,

I understand how hard it is to make a chai tea. It takes a lot of brain cells to tear your eyes away from those hot hipster chicks that are always taking up the booths and letting their hair feathers accidentally dip into their earl grey tea. I'm sure it also takes a large amount of brain cells to pour hot water into a cup and mix some tea powder in it to make my chai, but please, focus from now on. I ordered a large, and this is how much you filled my cup.
7-2
Does this look like the large I paid for? No. This is also the third time you've messed up my drink in the past week. I forgave you for not putting whipped cream on my drink, and I forgave you for giving me the wrong drink entirely because it ended up being delicious, but this? This is not cool. I paid five goddamn dollars for this drink and you gipped me of approximately two dollars. NOT ACCEPTABLE. I mean, how does this even happen? Did you get to the halfway mark, get side-tracked by the two people that were inside the entire coffee shop, and just stop pouring? Did you not notice how empty it was when you put the lid on?

No matter the reason, mess up my order again and I swear I will write a hate letter to your boss. You are not cute enough or nice enough to be messing up anyones orders, sorry. Get your head in the game, please, because your tips will be limited from me for here on out.

Love,
Me

  3. HAHAHAHAHHA oh god yes, you are so awesome for that hair feathers comment. This is so great. You need to write more of these. I've been thinking about a blog of letters, and this was just the cynical push I needed.

    In all honesty though, I'm sorry he's incompetent....I would've seriously went right back over there and demanded more unless he wanted the half-full version thrown at his face. But I DID throw a drink at someone today so I'm a bad influence, and also violent. lol.

    1. I used to write a lot of stuff like this and then stopped for some reason. Hopefully I get the urge to keep writing stuff like this, it's so therapeutic! haha Maybe if YOU start writing stuff like this, it'll push ME!

      I would love to throw a drink on someone, just so that I could say I've done it!

  4. Oblivious people are the worst kind of rude.

    2. Right?! Both drive me crazy, and they never realize they are in the wrong.

  5. So, why DIDN'T you ask for more in your drink? That's what I want to know. I would have made quite a scene. But I am my mother's daughter.

    1. Because I was already home! I told him about the first two problems because I was still there, but this time I didn't notice until I was pouring it into a mug to warm it up. I'd been driving around and it got cold.
