Me at Starbucks this morning:

"May I have a grande, decaf, single-shot, non-fat, dry, sugar-free vanilla cappuccino?"

Poor Starbucks trainee:

For the record, dry= extra foam. They lectured me on this till I adopted their lingo.

Anywho, raise your hand if you are high maintenance.

Large decaf.

Five creams.



Jrazz posted 10/23/2013 12:13 PM

That is MINOR maintenance at best, AJ's mom!

I do love your stance on cream, though!

Triple grande, caramel macchiato, upside down, stirred well and lite caramel on top.

My Moe's order (which JM refuses to go and get for me ever again)

Joey Bag of Donuts w/chicken
1/2 normal amt of rice
normal amt of Black beans
1/2 normal amt of cheese
tiny bit of sour cream
3 pickled jalapenos

side of queso

2 tomatillo salsa
2 who is Kaiser salsa

What's really sad is that I'm on a first name basis with the front line guy at the one I go to most often, and he's actually memorized my order.

Jrazz posted 10/23/2013 12:36 PM

Ha ha! That's is what I'm talking about.

You don't even WANT to know what happens when I order anything involving meat.

Deeply Scared posted 10/23/2013 12:44 PM

The only things I really make sure I special order are:

Steak = medium-well

Sushi = no Masago

Not obnoxious (sorry).

I just ask for coffee

Can't you 'sign up' at and put your "usual" special order on your Iphone to be scanned at the register?? I've seen people doing this.

TR "I'll eat anything"

Oh man, when I saw TR post I was scared that there was going to be a GIF of a snake drinking coffee.

My obnoxious drink has only been in effect for about a month, but it might be time to make it permanent. I'm craving my cup of coffee-tinged, vanilla flavored foam every morning now.

I'm very easy at Starbucks. Grande Non-fat latte. Yum! Now I want one!

Very easy at Starbucks...

Venti Iced Coffee, Sweetened with Cream.

That's FWSO's standard order.

I rarely drink anything from Starbucks anymore.

Crescita posted 10/23/2013 14:10 PM

Hmm, my Subway order is always pretty specific, but whose isn't?

I drink my coffee black or just order one of the frou frou drinks off the menu board

lynnm1947 posted 10/23/2013 14:24 PM

Small black decaf. My coffee is straightforward.

Now, my food orders can get very horrific because I don't eat bread or white rice, so when those items are included, I want none. I like my French fries well-done, and my pork souvlaki just barely done and my eggs scrambled and my carrots cooked a bit more than modern chefs do (because I'm allergic to them raw) and salsa with certain things instead of sour cream and no cucumbers in my salad (same reason as carrots) and no raw onions on anything and probably a dozen more.

I'd say I am very middle of the road.

Tall, nonfat, double cap, dry.

If I get something sweet, I ask for only a double pump.

Dunkin Donuts is usually a small or medium mocha/caramel/toasted almond iced coffee, cream only.

Starbucks is a grande iced, non-fat, no whip white mocha.

I try not to make my food orders to conplicated - if I have to special order too much on a dish, I am more inclined to just order something else I will eat as served.

Jrazz posted 10/23/2013 15:39 PM

Crescita, we're going to need to hear the Subway order before we can make a maintenance-grade call.

If it gets into oil and vinegar, or low fat honey mustard... you may qualify.

My orders are usually a bunch of minuses. No mayo. No tomato. No onion on my burger. No salad dressing. No pickle. No mustard. I usually order my burgers, "cheese and ketchup only."

Subway - cheese, ham, lettuce, and cucumber. That's it.

Starbucks - tall caramel frapp. That's the only thing I've ordered from there! Besides hot chocolate many years ago.

I don't drink coffee.

But heaven forbid a pickle touch my sandwich! I have to tear off that side of the bread/bun if a pickle's laying up against it.

Now that made me laugh - my mind always sees the double entendre possibilities just kind of juvenile I guess

Jrazz posted 10/23/2013 16:50 PM

Aw MAN. Now I'm not going to look at pickles the same.
