Today, at work, a woman came up to the counter and asked if we made sweet and sour chicken. Before I could answer, she told me a really long recipe and said "I expect to see this on the menu next time I come in, or I will complain to the manager about your lousy work ethic". I work at Starbucks. FML

Something similar happened to me once. I was working in a B&N cafe (which is basically a Starbucks, but owned by B&N) and this guy came in--in his 20s, so young enough to know better--and was like, "How do you make your chai? Is it with some kind of nasty syrup?" I told him that yes, we did use a syrup, but that it wasn't too nasty. He was then like, "No. That's no good," and he proceeded to tell me various chai suppliers in the area, as if I, a barista at a bookstore, had any authority to change where a large, national corporation bought its chai.

In MY native culture it`s a type of fictional food from a sci-fi television series. Weird, eh?

Quote: "Spoo is a fictional food product that served as a running joke within the Babylon 5 science fiction television series. In the series' fictional universe, spoo is made from worm-like creatures of the same name and is generally regarded as the most delicious food in the galaxy; the creature itself, however, is regarded with contempt by most species. Despite appearing only in a few episodes, fans embraced spoo and it became part of the series' extended mythology."

@288, you say you're smarter and more mature than most people around you, older or younger. Your post, however, seems to yell otherwise. Furthermore, you're overreacting. He could simply just be joking. As far as I know, sexist jokes such as that are very common, whether against men or women, and these jokes are thrown around so often, the person saying the joke doesn't actually mean it anymore.

Why, you don't actually mean sleeping with someone each time you say 'fuck', do you?

It's more or less the same basic idea.

You have a really short temper and a lousy sense of humor if you're going to be offended by something so trivial. Not to mention you bulldozed that guy for no reason. Be a little lighter and try not to lash out more.

288, you do realize that that was in all likelihood a troll trying to bait you into making a comment like that who is now laughing at you.

Yeah, your life isn't exactly fucked. Tell me you didn't get a laugh out of that. I'd probably be trying really hard to not be laughing in her face..
