Funny. Though, from the comments, it looks like the way to irritate English majors is to make a comment that their major is more likely to get them to work behind a Starbucks counter, rather than to get them a professional career. But some of us English majors can take a joke.
the third works for a starbucks employee. unless you decided to drop the frame-to-frame parallelism and are insinuating that the customer is the english major being annoyed by the clerk being annoyed by the customer–because in that case the last frame would actually be funny.
I’m pretty young and not even in a college yet, but fortunately, I learned the sad truth about psychology before it was too late. Most end up in the service industry, “drawn by better salaries”. Doh. They definitely make better fodder than English majors.
Which btw, funny thing…I work for Starbucks. I hate the names for the sizes, but whatever. When Someone comes in and says, “Can I get a large or a venti or grande or whatever you guys call it?” I simply reply with, “You CAN just say large, I do understand English.”
It’s not rocket science, and it’s not over priced. You get what you pay for. Does no one appreciate quality and friendly customer service anymore? Sorry our menu offers too many options.
sorry but customer service at starbucks when it comes to the actual drink is a joke, The employees are courteous at best. More often than not my shots sit for 30+ seconds while the neophyte steams the milk. And I can get a less bitter tasting latte across the street at the joe muggs for sub $3 with my books-a-million discount card.
The employees are courteous at best.
as an english major, doctoral student in education, I am now relegated to making art for a living…there is no justice…and I wouldn’t walk into a starbucks to order their pretentiously priced and horrid coffee.
