The Dietitian and the Barista

The following is our first guest post, brought to you by a customer of a Starbucks somewhere in West Texas.

There was a lady in front of me who had a problem with her drink. She asked Mr. Barista Man,

What are all these markings on my cup? This doesn’t taste like my normal drink!

He proceeded to read off her (no less than 15 word) drink and it turns out that she had ordered a latte but was given a mocha. She then said,

No problem. I can just drink this mocha. But wait- (shouting) DOES MOCHA HAVE CALORIES?? I CAN SUFFER THROUGH A DRINK THAT’S NOT MINE, BUT NOT IF IT HAS CALORIES!

She was told that mocha does indeed have calories and she asked for her latte. She then turned to everyone around her and explained the whole story (which we had heard loud and clear).

I WOULD’VE DRANK IT BUT MOCHA HAS CALORIES! I BET YOU CAN TELL I’M A DIETITIAN, HUH???

Note from People of Starbucks moderator: In my mind’s eye, this woman is wearing brightly-colored scrubs featuring cats.
