Who’d have thought being randomly selected to participate in an online survey would be so rewarding ($1 off my next order aside).
I NOW KNOW LATTE BOY’S NAME.
(Better watch it, Starbucks, there are creepy stalker girls out there…)
Also, our interactions this morning went thusly:
Cashier (far too perky for a pre-coffee interaction): Here’s a survey! Let me write down the names of everyone that helped you this morning!! Latte Boy will make your drink!!!
Penny (uncharacteristically willing to listen to perky cashier discuss online survey she will never complete because, really, it’s a dollar): Great!
<<Penny walks over to bar to wait for drink>>
Latte Boy (with a special smile): Good morning!
<<Penny takes drink and smiles at Latte Boy while he picks out a straw especially for her>>
Latte Boy: Have a great day.
Penny: Thanks! You, too!
<<Penny floats out of Starbucks, to her car, and on to work>>
