I once wrote a post about a Starbucks shift manager fail (read it here), so I thought today I’d offer a post on a “Starbucks Barista Win!”
A couple days ago I was in “my” Starbucks getting a cup of coffee, my fav to be exact—an iced quad grande light water extra ice americano—and was chatting with one of the regular baristas. Somehow we arrived at the topic of how I used to work for Starbucks and that one of the things I miss most about not working there, the weekly mark outs of coffee beans. She asked me what my favorite bean was, then went and grabbed a pound off the shelf and said, “here, you can have my mark out this week.”
I did what you’re supposed to do, I said, “that’s so nice of you, but you don’t need to do that.” All while inside I’m like, yeah, I’ll gladly take that. 🙂 But she insisted and before I could say anything else, she had already told another barista who was ringing me out her partner numbers and had the coffee marked out.
BONUS: Since she gave her partner number for the coffee bean mark out, I also got my drink with the partner discount!
