Smile, You're On Candid Latte Camera!

I’m in the drive up (the one prior to and around the corner from the window where your order prints out on the screen) at Starbucks, waiting on them to take my order. While I wait, I’m leaning my head out the window, checking out my highlight colors in the sun. My hairdresser did something different and I swear parts of my hair are red.

The speaker comes on, and the young man says, and I quote:

“Hey, girl. Do you want your usual Venti Chai No Water? And, by the way, you’re hair’s looking good today!”


They must have a view camera here. God. I’m glad I wasn’t picking my nose…or worse.

Oh, drive thru Starbucks sounds so exotic right now. SO American.

Library girl said...

That is both funny and cool!

Irish Gumbo said...

I'm interested in the "or worse..." Do you sometimes order topless or pantsless? ;) Wait, that wouldn't be worse...

Vodka Mom said...

LOL!!! That cracked me the HELL up.

Travis Erwin said...

You are the Norm of your local Starbucks. Now I can't stop singing -- Where everybody knows your name ...

I love good hair comments from strangers!! Always a great day when that happens.

That is funny! My mom used to drive up to the burger joint and they would say "the usual?" It was always a large diet coke with extra ice.

Janie said...

Christine - I'll send you one, girlfriend. What's your order?

LibraryGirl - it was funny!

Irish - I ainta telling!

VM - I'm here to serve, chica!

Travis!!! Please!!!

Di - I know, girl. Heh.

Comedy Goddess - you know that's right!

Amy - that's funny!

Michelle said...

YAY your lookin good girlie!!!

Does that mean that only your hairdresser knows for sure????

Good starbucks latte day to YOU!!!

Anita said...

Im guessing you frequent Rankin Hwy or Odessa? My store (midkiff) doesn't have a camera, but those do. Its the small little lens above the speaker. It good they know your drink and name.

Janie said...

It happened at Rankin.

I actually frequent your store, but work downtown, so Rankin is often closer.

Welcome to mi vida loca!

Anita said...

Cool. Look forward to making a chai for you one day, I may have already done so at one point. I just want you to know that your story really made my day. We hear all the time about when things go wrong, but I like the good customer responses. We try to get to know all the regulars and I like to hear that people appreciate that.

Ginger said...

That's a cute story. A few years ago I drove up to a drive up window right after getting my hair cut short, and the worker says "what can I get for you, sir?"
Sir???? Guess I shouldn't of gotten it cut that short. lol.

K said...

Wow...

I didn't know they have cameras.

Definitely good to know.

Joanie said...

I love when your coffee place knows exactly what yu order! And it's obvious he thinks you're hot!

♥georgie♥ said...

Janie OMgosh I was LMAO@the good thing i wasnt pickin my nose line or worse!!!

Angie Ledbetter said...

eeeeeek, thanks for the warning!!!

PS Have you ever noticed booger-pickers in cars think they're invisible? :)

Fragrant Liar said...

Oh, man. Thanks for the warning. I just know I'm going to get caught doing something disgusting and it will be on hidden camera and I will die a horribly mortified death and my family will hate me.

Wait, I mean, I would never do anything like pick my nose in a Starbuck's drive-through. I mean, how gauche!

Janie said...

Anita - I went through your drive through today, but you were probably home blogging!;) Actually, that recognition usually happens at your store, but just when Jessica L. is at the mike and when ThatManILove orders Quad Grande Breve Vanilla Latte and my chai. Then she'll say...Hi, *****!

Michelle - I have to have some help with this fine straight hair of mine, and color seems to do the trick!

Ginger - now, that's funny, girl!

K - nor did I...nor did I.

Joanie - I don't know what he thinks, my guess is he was just jacking with me.

Georgie - thanks, ma'am! I'm glad I inspire someone to laugh!

Angie - yes'm, I've seen that happen in cars before, and yeah, the people don't think you can see them! It is FUNNY.

FL - girlfriend. You'd never do anything like that, I know!

Chatelaine said...

Oh no.

I've probably rearranged my bra straps or something while sitting there before.

Midlife Slices said...

I'm still trying to wrap my brain about how a Chai is made without water. And what's wrong with red highlight?? LOL

I've had a crappy weekend. Can you tell?

J'Ollie Primitives said...

lol loved the remark about NOT picking your nose in the drive-thru ~ that should totally be reserved for the highway. OK maybe not there either.

Barrie said...

Do you really think they have a view camera??? And, uh, I have some turquoise highlights. I wonder what he'd say to me? :)

Soxy Deb said...

I wouldn't have been picking my nose, but probably singing.
i wish we had a drive thru Starbucks here. I am too lazy most days to get out to get the damn coffee my body need for sustenance.
Drive-thrus should be mandatory.

Valerie said...

Too funny. They don't know me at our local Starbucks, not my cup of coffee. lol (I know it's corny!)

Lyndsay said...

Oh my gosh, I've had the EXACT same thing happen ... welcome to Starbucks Lyndsay, is that you? Grande non-fat vanilla latte?

Junosmom said...

Next time, I'd fake it, and roll it (the fake stuff) between your fingers and flick it toward the speaker.
