Three-peat

Stuck behind 3 Chinese girls today in Starbucks.

Girl 1: Almond latte please?
Starbucks guy: Huh?
Girl 1: Almond latte please?

Starbucks guy reels off lattes they offer and a hazelnut latte is chosen

Starbucks guy: How about one of our new sandwiches?
Girl 1: Huh? Don't understand
Starbucks guy: Our new sandwiches? One of them has ham! (my exclamation not his)
Girl 1: No

Girl 2: Almond latte please?
Starbucks guy: Huh?
Girl 2: Almond latte please?

Starbucks guy reels off lattes they offer and a hazelnut latte is chosen ... again

Starbucks guy: To celebrate 20 years in Boston we're offering an extra espresso shot.
Girl 1: Huh? Don't understand
Starbucks guy: OK. Never mind

Girl 3: Almond latte please?
Starbucks guy: Huh?
Me: Fuck me!
Girl 1: Almond latte please?

Starbucks guy reels off lattes they offer and a hazelnut latte is chosen for the 3rd time

Me: Grande decaf in a venti cup.
Starbucks guy: Sure. (seriously? No cross-sell to someone who can speak English?)
Me: I think they wanted Almond milk.
Starbucks guy: Oh. Makes sense now.

3 Chinese girls scuttle off looking up lactose intolerance on their smartphones.
