Coffee Shop Tough Guy

“Yeah, give me one of those, uh, caramel maccha… mocchi… mo-cah-lah-do things.”

It’s pronounced “macchiato”, sir, and I know you know this because you order that drink all the time.  You hear the barista declare that beverage regularly with proper elocution, so you can drop the tough guy act for five minutes, especially considering you just ordered the Starbucks equivalent of an apple-tini.

Look, I don’t have a problem with the caramel macchiato itself.  It’s a perfectly fine beverage.  All I’m saying is that if you’re going to order one, stand by your selection. Don’t be like that guy who goes into a bagel shop and shouts, “I’ll have a bacon, egg, and cheese”, but secretly slips the guy behind the counter a note that reads, “Ignore what I just said.  Please give me a scooped-out, whole-wheat bagel with non-fat cream cheese, but when you hand it to me, please audibly say, ‘Bacon, egg, and cheese’.  Thank you.”

    Great post! But I think it would be more realistic if you used regular people for the photos, rather than professional models.

    Do professional models get paid?
