congratulations you’re wrong in three languages

This past weekend a Starbucks customer finally had enough with the company’s lingo and had to be escorted out by the police when she refused to use the exact phrase “without butter or cheese” when ordering a multigrain bagel. Did the woman overreact by going ballistic on a Stabucks employee? Most definitely, but you could say the same for the barista who could have instantly diffused the situation by simply selling her a bagel. Me, I’m all for anyone telling Starbucks (and any other brand) to stick it when they attempt to create their own language in an attempt to seem cool, hip, or cutting-edge. So, to celebrate that thought, here’s this clip of Role Models on the subject of a venti large cup of coffee.
