Today, I came to a realization that the closest people to me in my life, the ones who are warm and welcoming, who're happy to see me, who honestly wanna know how I've been and how I feel, whose smiles make me feel warm and fuzzy inside, are the baristas at Starbucks, not my actual 'friends'. FML

if they work at Starbucks, they dont really care how you feel. They're just getting paid to pretend to care.

It only makes you feel warm and fuzzy because the coffee is hot. I'll be your friend!

is that how bad things have gotten over in Malaysia? Damn

Baristas can be friendly. I'm in the same boat, I go to cafes and study to be around people because I don't have many friends.

if it makes you feel any better, I fell in love with my barista, had sex with him when I didn't want to, then he broke my heart into a million pieces.

In the same boat here too. Starbucks visits brighten my day, it's kind of sad.

Wow, didn't know you had that kind of fetish...

I thought i'd share this with you that happened today and was at starbucks. Today, my friends and I went to starbucks for drinks because I just payed my bills and they wanted to buy me coffee. As we all walked into starbucks and ordered coffee the lady made mine and handed it to me. As I was reatching for it she dropped it and it spilled on me. I went to the bathroom and wiped it off. When I came back none of my friends were there. She handed me a bill. Our coffee all together was over 100 dollars. They each orded 10 coffees. There was me, and 2 others. FML

These "Today, I realized (or realised)..." FMLs are kind of annoying. Yeah, today you're a loser, as you were yesterday, the day before, and the day before. I thought this was for "everyday life STORIES" not realizations/lame epiphanies. Sorry. Rant. Anyway, FYL.

lol, I hadn't finished to read the comment I knew it was you :) gotta love these conclusions of yours ^^

Yay! I've long awaited the day people could recognize my comments as mine. :)

well, just keep them (and their conclusions) coming ;)

I certainly will. :) Fortunately for you all, I don't have a life outside of this website. It's even taken over the place of MySpace and Failbook.

ahAH, fortunately for me, these are two places I don't lose time on ^^

I used to be on them a ton, but not much these days. I just use FML all day and night, and I use AIM.

I mark all epiphanies as "YDI." If it took you until today to realize that you have no friends or that you still live at your parents' at 30 or that you're fat, you definitely deserve it.

Hahaha, thank you! :) And now I get why your name is mistercoffee...

Actually it's both.... depending on where you're from

no it's realize. Go look that shit up on

Polionixon 2

ok it's realise if your from Britain i didn't know that.

You know what I hate? People who think friends are supposed to give a shit about your day and how you feel, guess what, no one cares besides yourself, you are insignificant, do not share your insignificance with other people. Unless you are, ofcourse, the reincarnation of Jimmi Hendrix.

superpoorpeople - you clearly have no friends if you have that selfish attitude.

You clearly have friends who think scraping their knees is the end of the world, whenever shit goes down and everyone is down no one is talking about how shit they're lives are to everyone, we just put up with it and go on with our lives.

But completely true. I work at starbucks. There are rules detailing how exactly to pretend to care. But the customers are too vapid to be bothered by such blatant insincerity.

Exactly. YDI for thinking the minimum-wage droids at a coffee shop give a rat's ass how you feel, regardless of how much they fake it.

No kidding. If I'm on a lunch break at my job at Starbucks, 99% of my customers had damned well better not come strike up a conversation. I'm paid to "genuinely" care about you. If I'm off the clock, bugger off.

um, isn't that what anyone gets paid to do? be nice to the people who are paying them?

Wow that's rather sad...become better friends with the baristas?

YDI actually liking that bad excuse for coffee. nobody where i live drinks that inbred heap of shit.

It only makes you feel warm and fuzzy because the coffee is hot. I'll be your friend!

no because she is an inbred **** for liking that shit excuse for coffee. most people who goto starbucks couldn't even fucken use a coffee maker.

Ok, not to be a grammar nazi, but I really don't know the answer to this: Is "who're" a word? It's not red underlined, so I'm thinking it is. It just looks too much like "*****".

the interesting point for me (not being an english speaking native) would be to guess at how that would be pronounced exactly :p definitely not ***** (except maybe for a voluntarily ambiguous statement ^^)

I guess it's like "hoo-r"? Kind of interesting. I would never use it in speech. Also, yep, I'm here all the time!

EVERYTHING is funnier with a Scandinavian accent. Oh hey, I'm Scandinavian too!! Woot.

you're scandinavian? oO (actually, I'm not, I just thought it would sound good with a scandinavian accent)

Well, I'm not, but my heritage is. I'm a huge part Danish. :)

half scandinavian, half pastry? sounds like a winning combination ;)'s a contraction. most contractions are grammatically correct, even if they look weird. "amn't," for example, is a legit contraction for "am not," even if very few people would use it aloud.
