And you realize that by voicing this to the public you’re telling them that they are essentially being rude to baristas if they order frappuccinos now. Almost all the annoyance you just conveyed can and should be conveyed at your company; your district manager. If one extra step means it slows down drink making *that* significantly, A) it sounds like your store gets a lot of business and B) it sounds like your store doesn’t get enough hours for the amount of business it does. There should be more baristas able to pick up the slack if a frappuccino order backs up the order line that profoundly. That’s a busy Starbucks and it needs more hours.
Entitlement goes both ways. Frappucinos are an item on your everyday menu. You’re taking the opinion that you are entitled to your annoyance at people for ordering them because there’s an extra step involved in making them that you don’t like doing. Because you don’t like doing it, people that order them are annoyances. That’s just as bad a position to take as a customer pressuring you to hurry their order. It would be false to say all frap customers rush you. That’s an impossibility. So, standing behind that as the reason and hence turning the blame solely on the customer is kinda BS. I go to Starbucks all the time. I order frappuccinos maybe 30% of the time, my friends do, my mom does. Other people do. I have a habit of observing others so I tend to eavesdrop on orders. I’ve never seen someone rush a barista over a frap’s time consumption. If you are a frap customer, you also must have learned at some point how long you’ve always had to wait to get your drink every single time you’ve ordered too. It’s always about the same wait time. I’m not saying you’re lying, just that frap customers are not all doing that to all baristas. Yes, there are some total idiots who are going to be frap customers and never understand time and space and rush baristas but they also go to retail stores and cause problems too. They’re simply idiots. You have to take some blame for just not liking to make the drink and hence being a little entitled on that point yourself. Unless, like I said, your store is simply not getting enough hours and you’re carrying the burden of a busy store almost alone. Again, that’s Starbucks. Not the customer.
