But seriously, there isn’t anything to talk about with a barista…..
Went to MW Starbucks today. I know I’ve mentioned that I prefer coffee bean many times, but then, the only decent coffee joint at MW is Starbucks and TCC. And I’ve been to TCC last week. So I decided to go Starbucks. If only they have a coffee bean at MW too.
Anyway, the starbucks is rather empty. Maybe its weekday and near closing hour. I just wanted a cup of coffee to destress myself. So the barista tried to chat with me while preparing the cafe mocha.
Barista: How is your day?
At that quick second, I wonder…. should I really tell her that I’m having a terrible day? I got a exam to take and my revision is not going fine. I got my dad and sis bugging me whole night and the reason why I’m at starbucks is because I badly need a cup of coffee to ease myself.
So you asking me how is my day?
The frank answer is, today is a rotten day. But then, so what if I tell you that I have a bad day? Will that coffee be FOC? Will you put extra whip cream on top? Or will you sit at my table and chat a few minutes with me?
I doubt so….
Me: Oh, its a fine day.
