Today was one of those days consumed with work, annoyance, and the sweet aroma of coffee brewing as I worked from Starbucks. I have the funniest story to tell you about today.
One of my biggest pet peeves are those people who talk ridiculously loud into their Bluetooth ear pieces. You know those people who will have a full conversation, extremely loud, and not care about anyone else in their surroundings. With that being said, I am the person who rolls their eyes and sighs at the sheer obnoxious behavior of these individuals.
Because my Facebook is my place to post whatever I see fit – I took to it. I mean it was just a funny little quip on the guy who was holding his whole conversation in an already crowded Starbucks was beyond me.
Why did I do that? Why? What was I thinking? I mean it’s Facebook. That is quite possibly one of the worst statuses that one could ever post. How dare I even take to Facebook to rag on this poor man disturbing the peace?!?
You’re probably wondering why I’m saying all these sarcastic remarks about a guilty act that we have all committed on Facebook at least once in the duration of the glorious social network.
I won’t share the screenshot because I haven’t gotten to the point of public shaming just yet, but I will share word for word what a dear Facebook friend of mine was willing to share on MY status.
You, maam, are not supposed to be working at starbucks. It is a coffee house, not an office. YOU go home. (Sorry… I was a barista for years, Starbucks is NO more your workplace than it is HIS living room where he can shout as much as he wants)
Not going to merit it a response on the blog, because this lady has friends. Really, just one who would be more than willing to own someone on a status that isn’t hers. Gidget gracefully handed this dear Facebook friend something I don’t think he was expecting…
Seeing as how I am currently in a Starbucks located in Morehead City, North Carolina, I read your comment on Mrs. Severina’s Facebook to the entire staff here. Not only did they agree with Severina that Mr. Bluetooth douchebag WAS in fact being an obnoxious inconsiderate asshole, they also agreed that you’ve got to be the bitchiest, most annoying former barista in the world. If Starbucks belongs to everyone, to act however we’d like to act, then I wish you were still a barista, because I’d come into your Starbucks and shout and act like I’m in my living room by telling you all the different ways you can go FUCK OFF. Good day.
Woah woah woah. Haha. Everything I wrote was pretty much a joke and satire. I didn’t mean to send Elizabeth Rose into a complete She-Hulk. Baristas in general do get a bit annoyed when anyone uses the starbucks as their own personal space. I dont know about the specific one youre in, maybe you have a particularly chipper bunch. Everyone calm down… and consider what I said taken back!
Let this be a lesson learned, you make a statement on my Facebook – it ends up on the blog.
P.S. And this one goes to the ladies.
On a much better note, my second annual craft exchange is coming up. I’m about to get back with the peeps to share some fun goodies. Our group has grown quite a bit since our first exchange (up to 19 people) and I cannot wait to share my project. As you may remember, Martha Stewart was very instrumental in helping me pick out this simple, but powerful project that meant a lot to me. I attempted to get fancy and add another component to the project – epic fail. I’ve learned to just keep it simple and stick with Martha Stewart’s grand dream projects.
Since the second part was a failure, I packed the projects up. They are all packaged up pretty and ready to go to their new respective homes.
Our exchange is next Saturday night, so I’ll probably be sharing a few other projects before I get to that one. Until then, craft on!
