This is a great movie.
What I want to say EVERY SINGLE TIME.
Baristas are paid minimum wage to follow their company’s policies. That includes using whatever terms their company decides on for branding purposes. If you want a frappuccino instead of a frappe, a large instead of a venti, or whatever other thing you wanna call your drink, that’s fine. Your barista? They are paid shitty wages and work shitty hours and have to deal with hundreds of people telling them medium instead of grande, or large instead of venti (which refers to the fact that it is, actually, 20 oz of liquid, meaning you’re being a jackass for no reason).
Your barista isn’t stupid. They know what a fucking ‘large’ is and they know their store’s branding and slang sounds dumb to a lot of people. So how about, instead of being an asshole to a minimum wage worker, you consider why you keep buying $6 coffees instead of making that shit at home.
I’ll say that one more time.
Your barista is not stupid.
They know what a large is, what a medium is, and what a small is.
They also know they can be fired for not toeing the company line. And they can be fired for not standing there and taking the abuse you’re spewing at them.
They are being paid to not fight back. They are being paid to stand there all day and translate medium to grande and venti and large and regular and all while you bitch about the specific words you “have” to use. They are being paid to be welcoming and friendly and nice to you while you call them stupid.
Bitch, I know baristas with Ph.Ds, okay? Back the fuck off.
Reblogging for commentary.
I was just like to point out that after this scene, the Elizabeth Banks character ripped him for insulting the barista — and then pointed out that it’s called “venti” because it is twenty ounces.
It’s a movie.
While it is a movie, I know and have seen things like this occur in real life as well so yeah. Everyone should just learn to respect and be kind towards one another.
this is the most depressing thing on this website
He’s a pornstar now
Uh, no. He didn’t become a pornstar. Steve Burns actually left because he didn’t want to make a career out of a Childrens TV host for the rest of his life. He wanted to pursue his musical career. There was also the factor that Steve was also starting to lose his hair and he didn’t want that to happen on a TV show…in an interview he stated he was starting to bald…and in the show he began to start wearing hats more and more until he finally retired from the show and let Joe take over.
Steve never “died”, became a “Pornstar” or went to jail for drug possession…again, all rumors… He’s actually doing pretty okay, he’s been in a few things since that time, even a Youtube comedy series called The Professionals.
Steve isn’t a Pornstar.
This is how fucking rumors start.
