not the actual flirting barista
Ok, we 50 year olds don’t normally mind when young ladies are a bit flirtatious. When we notice (and I never do, which is why I have to ask). I mentioned previously the barista who asked my name so she could get it tattooed on her arm (which comment was designated to be flirting by various and sundry persons to whom I told the tale).
Today when I stopped by SB’s to get my daily fix of a non-fat Toffee Mocha (non fat, I told her, because I’m watching my intake. Why, she said, you’ve got a perfect body). I handed the cashier a $20 sans comment. She gave me my scone and then started taking the next order- but I interjected- can I get my change?
Oh, my, said she, I completely forgot. Your eyes distracted me.
I think it was a ruse… Anyway, that’s what I’m guessing. So I’m also guessing that Starbucks urges its employees to be overly complimentary. Or outright deceptive. I hope not the latter.
