Goddamn it. I didn't write the above comment.
That's what I get for letting a drunk coworker use my computer. Thanks, Mercury for not allowing people to delete comments.
Are you people kidding with your comments? I have people that come into my shop, throw their money down on the counter and bark orders at me while on their cell phones. Then, they critique my technique. All while not tipping. Dudes and dudettes, wake the F-Up! While we are on the other side of the counter, we are still people. People who are trying to get your day started right with an awesome caffeinated beverage and a great interaction. Please don't treat us like crap and then tell us we are doing in wrong. If you don't like what we do, go to the green arches where the customer is always right. If you want knowledgeable specialty coffee industry baristas who make hand crafted beverages, keep your crappy non-tipping comments to yourself...or just make your coffee at home where you can bask in the glory of your cremaless espresso and your microwaved milk.
It's like that Whitesnake video and a Diesel ad were thrown into the editing blender and covered in lube.
But not just any lube. That fancy hypo-allergenic German shit.
They really need to stop letting Dave Navarro design children's toys.
I have never had bad service at a Stumptown. I've had "It's really busy and I'm on autopilot" service. But I've never had anybody act rude or standoffish. Some people don't understand how their own attitudes and demeanor contribute to the level of service they get. I don't think that your 45 second interaction with a barista allows you to make broad personality assessments.
That and this town is awash in overly judgemental, self important people yupsters who don't understand why their latte doesn't come with a complimentary taint licking.
She got arrested for mudding drunk through a cemetery? Oh Kentucky.
But without Oregonian editorials, I will fall behind on my palm-to-forehead regimen. Oh well. There's plenty of befuddled and unintentionally amusing fish in the sea.
