Barista Talk

Dec 13, 2005

This is sort of strange.

I’m at Starbucks (yeah, go ahead with the comments….) and I walk up to order my drink and the barista behind the counter (who I don’t know) says:

"Hey – don’t you have a blog?" 

Huh?  What?  Wowzers.  That’s kinda freaky…  We talked for a few minutes and he said that he reads my blog and recognized me but couldn’t remember how he found it.

This is where we all start singing, "It’s A Small World After All…"

    Totally cool! Witnessing without having to say a word.

    That’s easy, Scott! He found you because that picture in the last post means you’re the walking, talking billboard for Starbucks. You’re probably the largest purchaser! :)

    lol Starbucks Corporate must have sent out the memo with your picture on it…
    “If you see this guy…..”
    But seriously, thats pretty cool and a bit freaky all at once

  4. Betsy says:

    Yeah, all he had to do was google “Starbucks” and “Chicago” and you’re #3 on the list! (Just kidding… I couldn’t come up with an honest google that did bring you to #3 on the list.)

    This has been a recurring fantasy of mine since I started my web site. Awesome, man! :-)

  6. Ted says:

    I guess it was good that you didn’t go into a caffeine fit in line.
    The question that I have is, did you get some type of discount?

  7. Rachel says:

    So, I assume you had come down from your previous caffeine high in order for you to even go into Starbucks today?

  8. Brian – OK, THAT was funny….
