You Can Lighten Up With The Attitude, Sweetheart...

...You're a goddamned barista, not a fucking surgeon. 'Cuz if you want, I can really give you something to roll your eyes about.

Oh, the joyous Sunday morning trip the the local coffee shop. Honestly, I try to relax and keep things casual - it is Sunday morning after all - but sometimes people make it so difficult, like the above mentioned barista. Then , there's these people:

  • Is it really such a struggle to throw on a pair of pants - even sweatpants if you must - to go out for a cup of coffee? I don't care that its Sunday morning, but pajamas in public is just not appropriate. You're an adult, and your snowflake pajamas are not cute. They're pathetic.
  • I know its a bit crowded in here, but since when does getting up to fetch my coffee while leaving my barely-eaten pound cake at the table mean that you can take my seat? Yeah, I always buy a pastry, take a bite of it, then get up to leave the shop, douchebag.
  • Richard spotted his first pair of Crocs for the year, a mere two days into the warm(er) weather. What's worst is that they were baby blue, worn with socks. On a dude.

OKAY - GEEZ! I get it! Everyone hates my damn crocs. But they are so comfy. FINE. I will stop wearing them to work and to the movies. But I will be damned if I stop wearing them if I am just running out to get a coffee!! Is it more acceptable that mine of black and I am a girl? Throw me a bone here.

I only go to SBUXes with hot baristas. Granted, that's for a very different definition of "hot" here in Seattle, but I digress.

As everyone knows, hot chicks can act however they want on account of their hotness.

And chicks wearing pajamas are great.

I saw a pair of knock-off Crocs for sale in Walgreens this week.

Befuddling. Not only are they a blight upon the eyes, they are GUARANTEED not to be comfortable.

Gawd, I so feel your pain. People annoy me more than not. The BF calls me a complainer, but I think I am merely pointing out the obvious. Like its my job. We went for a bike ride today and saw people who basically thought they were out for an afternoon in Maui. Nutjobs.

I am so happy to see that I am not the only whinger. It does make me wonder how those overly happy people who wear bad shoes and forget to look in a mirror before leaving home occupy their time.

they had crocs all over australia, too. i should have known to expect that from a country where people wear board shorts and flip flops in the central business district. i'm not hating on that, obvy, since i'd live in shorts, t-shirts, and flip flops if i could (and i did whilst down under).

I don't know why, but I love this post. Bitchiness loves company, maybe? I hate all the same things....on some days Crocs and a snotty attitude can just send me over the edge.

This post, for some reason, reminded me of the post you did about ripping ass. Was that in a Starbucks? Wherever it was, have you been back since.

No Cros please... especially with wool socks.

well,

let's be real. all of these (crocks & pajama bottoms) are fashion statements. now aside from the drop dead gorgeous rule - where anything looks good because one is so damn hot (but enough about me) - one must dress age appropriately. pajamas are for the younguns & deadheads to be running around in. Everyone else was raised better than that. Crocks fall into a similar category, although comfortable shoes do trade stand their own fight. Sky blue, however, works great if your in a boy band only. It's all relative.

What I really want to know is what did you order at Starbucks? What's your Sunday cup of coffee?

They're all bitches I tell ya.

I hate those MF'ers at Starbucks-especially the ones who refuse to MOVE OUT from the register after they ordered and paid and you have to yell your order over all of those sows!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will confess I have done the pajama bottoms in the SBux before (IN LONDON!) but in my defense, the Sbux is literally across the small residential street I live on and I had convinced myself that the pj pants in question could pass for lazy Sunday morning outfit...but who was I kidding?

Ok ok. Sweats or better from now on (even if it is just to cross the street).
