one of those anal people...

"The details of your incompetence do not interest me." - Miranda Priestly, The Devil Wears Prada

Last night on our way home, Brandon and I discovered that Starbucks has returned to life in little ole' Small Town, Oklahoma! Joy lept into my heart at the realization. So naturally, I woke up early this morning to enjoy Starbucks. It is fall after all y'all.

I pulled in the drive-through lane and ordered a white hot chocolate with caramel drizzle, searing hot.

Now can someone please explain to me how a white hot chocolate translates into a WHITE MOCHA? I do not drink coffee. It is disgusting. Sorry Katherine, but coffee does not get me going.

Twice before I have ordered from the same Starbucks and they will say when they repeat the order, "white mocha". I correct the imbecils and my drink is fine. It is something that happens with the ordering system on their registers. They do not have a white hot chocolate it seems. This time the guy repeated the order to me as I said it. But when I picked up the order at the window, the girl said, "white mocha". I gave her the benefit of the doubt and put the cup in my cup holder, because it was searing hot.

A few minutes later, I picked up the cup and smelled nastiness.

So now, I will have to be one of the REALLY anal people who will say his/her order twice because he/she does not trust the worker to overcome their level of incompetence to get it right the first time. It will probably sound something like this....

"I would like a grande white hot chocolate with caramel drizzle, searing hot please. And no I do NOT want a white mocha. I want a white HOT CHOCOLATE, that means no coffee. at. all."

And yes I know, I'm already anal due to the fact that I do not drink my hot chocolate plain with no twists. I realize that I require it to be white, with caramel drizzle and searing hot. But really, if people would listen the first time, it would not be a problem. I hate being this way, but twice before this has almost happened. There is no miscommunication going on whatsoever. Just do it the way I ask, because otherwise I won't be able to function.

As Miranda Priestly would say, "That's all."

P.S. I got to use the word imbecil. Do you know how excited I am?

I'm going to pray for you with this. Coffee is a blessing from God and should be seen as such.

PLUS white chocolate mochas are really tastey.

When are you coming back to Norman? Because pretty sure, I haven't seen you in forever!>!>!

I went to Starbucks today for the first time since Pumpkin Spice came back, and I almost buckled in my restraint.

However, I did get a happy meal toy for you today.
