Covering the (espresso) “bar” for a buddy makes me realize how much I hate people before they’ve had their morning coffee.

Today marks the 10 year anniversary of me being a barista is that you have to talk to people before they’ve had their morning coffee

Ex-Starbucks Barista here (2006-2010):
It was a crapshoot. Some people were like, “you’re the human who gives me coffee, here’s money and a hug and my firstborn” and others were like “coffee-slave, ANOTHER!”.
Silver lining: I do have stories for days.
