Coffee
On my way to work I stopped at my new Starbucks, and I was pleased to find it worked quite well (with the flow of traffic and all I mean). I went through the drivethru, which was fun.

I ordered a drink and a muffin, then pulled around. The drivethru guy was quite cheery! He waved my muffin at me, "Blueberry muffin, right?"

I confirmed. He handed me my muffin and I handed him my money. He took another minute for my coffee, and I stared vaguely at nothing. I was extra-tired, having gotten up extra-ealy to meet with a contractor.

He appeared with my coffee and change, handed them to me, and waved me cheerfully on.

I looked at my hands, only one holding something, and said, "Wait, you haven't given me my muffin yet."

"I just handed it to you," he protested.

I looked at the seat next to me in surprise. There sat a forlorn muffin. "So you did!"

"I am wounded," he said. "Tears."

"I'm sorry... It must be because I haven't had any coffee yet."

I <3 Starbucks.

I went last week to my Starbucks before school and there was unfortunately this rather rude customer in the drivethru who stopped at the window after receiving his purchases to talk to a woman standing in the parking lot. This proceeded for 5ish minutes while I contemplated ways to ram his truck without damaging my car (That had a 0% success rate, by the way).

When he finally did leave, the Starbucks guy gave him the evil eye, and gave me a smile AND my coffee free. So hooray to Starbucks and rude people who score you free coffee. :)
