Ordering Coffee at the Starbucks Drive-Through

BARISTA (over drive-through speaker): What can I get for you today?

ME: A venti whole-milk latte, please.

BARISTA (cheerfully): OK, a grande mocha frappucino, and what else?

Silence ensues for a couple of seconds while I try to process what just happened. Finally…


BARISTA (still cheerfully): OK, a grande whole milk latte.

ME: A VEN…TI…whole milke latte.

BARISTA: Oh, a VENTI whole milk latte.

ME (in relief): Yes, that’s right, thanks.

BARISTA: And can we get you anything else besides the two drinks?
