Over a year ago my brother got married. I brought my video camera to capture it all on video. Now, before you start judging me, let me say that one of my sister-in-law's family members also had a video camera. However, I hadn't done any work on it in at least 8 months, much less finished and gave it to them. Since they are coming to visit this month, and because I was uber-bored, I set out to Starbucks with my computer since I knew I would never get anything done if  I tried to do it at home.

After I'd been there for a few hours it was time for a new drink. I walked up to the counter to place my order.
I like the cafe-vanilla variety.
He starts ringing it up.
I notice that he's already rung it up as "grande" and for some reason... okay, I was bored, and I decide to make a joke...
Haha!

He kind of stared at me for a second then said, "Well, I can make it bigger or smaller." He thinks I only said grande since I saw he'd rung it up as such.

I tell him, trying to remedy the situation "Heh, no I was just teasing you..." He was not impressed.
So I said what I always say in uncomfortable situations.
Then I said thanks and ran away back to my table to wait for my drink to be ready.

For part two of this exciting saga, tune in next week!

  3. Good grief. Some people just can't take a joke... And I too default to saying sorry for things that weren't my fault!

  4. haha! I hate when I try to make a joke and people don't get it. I usually think that I didn't say it right or something. And I probably apologize too, because I do that too often! I'm looking forward to the next part of this saga!

  7. @Nas: Glad to have you back! After two more days of working on the video it's nearly done!

    @Lesley, Kirsti & Liddy: I know right?

    @Lauren: Part two isn't as good, I just didn't feel like drawing any more pictures. But yeah my sarcasm is lost on a LOT of people!

    @Ashley: I don't know if I did that time but I turn bright red really easily too :(

  8. I feel like I haven't been on your blog in a while, too.

    Does this make me a grande jerk?

    Sorry.

  9. I always refuse to say grande or venti or whatever. One, because its stupid. And two, because I never can remember what means small, medium, or large.

    Annnd that was a really funny story. So awkward.

  10. @Shannon: nah you're just a "tall" jerk at most. :P

    @Ebun: I know which is which but I say medium cause "grande coffee" doesn't roll off the tongue well.
