It's O'dark thirty on a Monday morning. There is an unusual chill in the air and you are trying to recover from a weekend of commendable party-festivities. You must find sustanance to wake you from this stupor and what to your amazed sleep-laden eyes do you see, but the Green and White Starbucks sign, beconing you from the distance.
The car is on auto pilot as you enter the drive, round the building and head for the drive thru when all of the sudden - without warning or even a moment to glance at the menu (I know, I'm probably the only one who looks at the menu there) out of this little box sounds the most chipper voice imaginable.
Welcome to Starbuck where Amy, Julie and Dan are here to delight your tastebuds with the freshest coffee available. Would you like to try one of our Pumpkin Spice latte's or perhaps a yummy Pumpkin cheesecake muffin?Seriously????
I'm half awake and here you are blasting my eardrums with with more perkiness than a blonde, high school cheerleader after being crowned Homecoming Queen!
All I can do at this point is laugh - laugh thru my order and laugh at her as I drive away with my shot of 'pick me up.' I am a morning person people, but seriously....I am not THAT happy at O'dark thirty in the morning!!!
What is the one thing that grates on your nerves 1st thing in the morning?
