Tyler. Fan of Music that gets turned off at parties, drinking ales and being in fancy places and pretending I belong even though I quite obviously do not. (this previously listed my age as 21, it is one higher than this now. fuck all else has changed)
I would encourage you to ask me things but you might not because I won't put as many topless pictures on here as I should.
I play the mouth organ, dislike where I live and have no time for your damned shenanigans.
Today I had a job interview and also saw some kittens. Not bad so far.

Just because I work at Starbucks doesn’t mean I’m not a barista. I’m going to guess that you’re likely an uppity hipster who recently got a job at a local cafe and now suddenly think you know everything about coffee. So allow me to learn you a thing.
Starbucks is the most recognizable name in coffee in the country. When we alter anything on our menu, it becomes national news. Sure, our machines are automated. You would need automated machines too if you were doing more than 150 transactions in a half hour at peak. We operate 20,000 stores in 62 countries. X
Our brand becoming what it is now has increased the push for “premium” coffee products from 3% of a country-wide market share to more than 25%. X
We spend the least on advertising of any food competitor, and yet hold some of the highest profits. How could that be? Because Starbucks is built for efficiency and consistency. We introduced the concept of “barista” to the United States and nearly single-handedly created the idea of “coffee culture” in a country that hadn’t quite gotten there yet. X
Starbucks also was one of the first companies to offer benefits to part time workers and created a company culture of togetherness. And have we lost our way? In some respects, yeah. But am I going to let you sit there and disparage me or the partners in this company who work their asses off every single day. FUCK. YOU.
I don’t really care about the above argument but I find it really creepy how a starbucks worker keeps referring to starbucks as “We” and talks about “our brand”
