I heard the worst combination of four words in the history of mankind
(Let me preempt this by saying, I was given a Starbucks gift card from a client).
The woman in front of me in the line at Starbucks ordered a 'Grande Soy Chai Latte'.
WTF is in a 'Grande Soy Chai Latte'????????
I myself bought a 'Tall Americano' which is the closest thing in Starbucks to regular coffee. Or in Starbuckanese; Cafe Regulari. But I REFUSE to order a 'Tall'. I want a small one.
So I asked for a small! Then the cashier says 'One Tall Americano'. Then I snapped back, 'Yes, a Small Americano'. She is not going to control my speech!! I think Starbucks is the closest thing to modern day fascism.
