The People You Meet At Starbucks- 3

on 15 August 2010

So far we’ve had two installments in this series: you can read the first one here and the second one here.

In the first installment, we looked at one type of office drone, so today let’s look at a different type of office drone:

Poor little office slave! This drone knows that to mess up the coffee run will put their competence into question. Unfortunately for them, their experience with coffee culture is limited to little Mom and Pop coffee shops, and the range of options at Starbucks is a little confusing. However, they stave off a complete mental breakdown with meticulously orderly notes- if there’s any confusion about a drink, a quick call or text takes care of the problem in seconds.

This drone often is putting the order on their own debit card with hopes of reimbursement dancing in their head. All the same, they are in a hurry to get themselves and their drinks back to the office in as short a time as possible. The boss is waiting, a fact attested to by the three calls inquiring their location received from the office while they wait. It is not clear whether this drone should drink coffee (so as to keep up with the hectic pace of life), or whether they should avoid it all together (so as to stave off a heart attack as long as possible). All the same, my heart goes out to them.

We’ll continue our journey through stereotypes another time; until then, have a lovely weekend, readers!
