McBird is a swell guy; Strutting around the block with a cigar in his mouth, waving his wing cockily as all those bubbling Pidgey ladies walk by.. Ya wanna hate him, but you just can’t.

there is an unlisted size: short (8 oz). This is most cafes’ “small,” but Starbucks shifted the sizes up a number of years ago (which is why “tall” and “grande” weren’t weird names then), making the venti the largest. You can get any hot drink short.

we have a number of flavor syrups that aren’t listed on the menu, just ask what we have. Also, despite what many customers think, we have peppermint year round, so we can make peppermint mochas and peppermint white mochas any time of the year. Gingerbread and pumpkin spice are seasonal, but we may not run out of stock for quite a while, so if it’s February there’s still a chance.


bring your own cup, save 10 cents. Might have to remind the cashier, we forget sometimes.


you can get a drink “for here” and get it in ceramic/glass, feel fancy, waste less.


edited to add: 50 cent refills on coffee, iced tea, or iced coffee (not espresso beverages)


iced large drinks have extra everything, on account of being 24 and not 20 ounces - extra espresso shot, extra pump of syrup.


it’s honestly not that annoying that you have a very specific drink order. It breaks up the monotony, and it’s nice not to be a vanilla latte robot. Sometimes people would ask for weird things that I’d make for myself later and end up liking! (protip: green tea latte with peppermint)


You can get the matcha green tea as plain, non-milk tea. It’s pretty cheap for matcha tea, too.


adding a syrup to a drink always costs extra (unless the cashier likes you/doesn’t care, which is frequent), unless it’s already in that drink. i.e., a caramel frappuccino with extra caramel doesn’t cost extra.


that delicious caramel sauce is in fact real caramel. That plastic-tasting caramel syrup is not. Many people don’t realize we have both - the caramel sauce is what decorates the cup of the caramel frappuccino and on the whipped cream, the caramel syrup is what flavors the actual frappuccino or a caramel latte.


a caramel macchiato is a vanilla latte with caramel sauce, and least (Starbucks: “most”) importantly, the espresso shot put on top of the steamed milk.


infrequently ordered, but delicious drink: a marble macchiato. It’s like a caramel macchiato but with half mocha syrup, half white mocha.


if you want a legit cappuccino and you see jugs of milk on the counter, ask for them to use milk from the fridge. Milk needs to be cold to foam that well. Likewise, if you want a soy cappuccino, you can be a pain in the ass and ask for soymilk from the fridge (they might not even have any in there), since soy will barely foam at room temperature, since the cartons are shelf-stable.


if you have no idea what to order, ask us. Since we get free drinks you can count on us trying every single drink in every disgusting combination. Our favorite drink will probably be something excessively complicated we’ll be happy to make for you.


on that note, if you’re like, green tea latte? disgusting or delicious? you can ask us to sample it. we’ll make a whole drink and split it into sample cups. No big deal, our manager will probably like us better for promoting drinks anyways, and you don’t have to spend money to find out raspberry mochas are gross and green tea is delicious.


same thing for pastries. We’ll sample it if you ask and we have enough (generally yes).


if you really like a certain coffee we have but we don’t have it brewing, you can ask for a french press version. French press generally tastes better anyway, and iirc it doesn’t actually cost any more and you can order whatever size you normally would. We’ll probably sample the rest of the pot anyway. However, this will take significantly longer since, for once, we actually have to brew the coffee ourselves.


we often forget or get too busy, but we actually have giftwrap, especially around the holidays. Ask and we’ll make that overpriced mug purty.


I had a few customers with impossible or silly requests. (1) impossibly hot beverages - in excess of 210F. guys. srsly. (2) people who ask for extra hot cappuccinos and are disappointed by them still not being hot enough. This is how a cappuccino is - there’s too much air/surface area for the foam layer to ever be hot. If you want hot, get a latte. (3) asking for less-hot milk from the pitchers we’ve already made. We can’t serve milk that has gone below 135, you have to have us make a fresh batch. Sucks for waste, better for you not puking.


in terms of dairy allergy/vegan stuff, the caramel sauce, white chocolate syrup, and pumpkin spice syrup all contain dairy. The chai contains honey. The whipped cream is 100% legit heavy cream. The caramel syrup, mocha syrup, and other syrups are non-dairy. This stuff might not matter to the lactose intolerant, but to some it does. For the caffeine-sensitive, the mocha syrup does not actually have any coffee - it’s chocolate sauce, and is just named that because it’s what we use for mochas. The “creme-based” list of fraps is usually pretty short, but there are usually more caffeine-free options, just ask.

Rejection

Um. So I’m probably one of the few folks who doesn’t think this is adorable. At all.

I think it’s fucking scary how this little boy keep pushing himself on her after she CLEARLY doesn’t want to be bothered with his ass.

And the adult behind the camera doesn’t intervene at all because it’s ‘cute.’

And how analogous it is to when grown ass men don’t take fucking no for an answer, no matter how much we push and shove and say no.

This is not cute. This is an absolute disregard of this little girl’s boundaries.

In the very bottom left gif you can see he’s smiling/laughing. Like this is some kind of game.

I would bet money that the person filming this is laughing and encouraging him.

This is how we teach boys not to respect women’s spaces.

^^^^^^^

Yeah this is creepy…

wow this is really really fucking scaring me. look at rape culture existing AT A REALLY FUCKING YOUNG AGE

JUST LOOK AT THIS SHIT

A girl in my adv poetry class wrote a poem about this. How she’d get in trouble for pushing the boy down and nothing would happen to him bc “he’s just showing that he likes you, sweetie.” 

Fuck this bullshit. 

The people who’ve commented on the gifset and the video on youtube who are calling the boy a “little rapist” or a “future rapist” need to sit the fuck down.

The problems in this video do not come from the fact that the little boy wants to hug the girl. He’s a three year old. His parents have probably taught him that hugs are fun and how you show someone you like them. His refusal to accept the word “no” is not because he is a “budding sexual predator” - but because he is three years old. Three year olds will also try to eat dirt and if they have to go really badly they will tear off their pants and pee in the middle of a crowded sidewalk. Their parents telling them “no” really doesn’t change that when they’re three.

The problem with this video comes from the fact that this behaviour is seen as cute and is encouraged by the parent. Three year old boys eat dirt, leave poops in surprising places, refuse to eat vegetables, and wag their willies hither and yon, and this does not make them terrible human beings - but their parents continually tell them not to do these things, so that they eventually grow into the understanding that such behaviour is wrong.

The little kid is not a rapist, and the parent is not abusive or misogynist - just careless. But it’s important to note how this sort of carelessness leads to a greater, skewed understanding of how the world operates. 

Bless your mind June, finally someone making sense.

The BadgerCorps©: My internet is being throttled.

polishmycock:

superbluebadger:

My internet is fucked so I am forced into methods of which I am not familiar to entertain my mind to stave off the crushing grip of reality because I can’t stream my soaps.

Maybe I…

Tumble etiquette is a sketchy thing, but I would say long discussions are only a bother if you’ve got people following you (which I don’t) or you start growing sappy (which we have yet to do). If worst comes to worst and you develop a guilty conscience over flooding someone’s dash, so to speak, we could move somewhere else - the internet is an endless bottom after all, the only requirement is for the chat client to have little to no talking advertisements (I have a bit of a quarrel with these).

That must get exhausting, I’m sorry to hear. My impression of bars (which is not based in any way on personal experience as I am 20 and in the states, sad story) was much more glorified than that. A bit like the impression I get from coffee shops, where the lonely, deranged, and peculiar people reside. There is always a person is the group who has something about him that’s above the rest - a sort of aura that tells me this person has something to say, or something to show. I got a bit carried away there - what I meant to say, is that my idea of how a bar is was mostly like that, only with dimmed lights, and much jazzier music + the occasional piss contest. Still, I do get the impression that ultimately you enjoy your job, so something must be going right (unless I’m dead wrong. I don’t know. Sadly, am not a mind reader).

As for inspiration, don’t stress it. As long as you like recording, it’s good enough for me. If that is not the case, I still urge you to keep at it (for selfish reasons). Besides, the amount of effort you put into it is undeniable. I can’t even finish going through Skyrim’s main storyline, much less explore it or read about it - poster girl for lack of long-lasting dedication, I am.

The only real chat client I use is Skype because skype is totally dopeamine. If you have that, let me know.

The unfortunate side of things is that it’s very difficult to really get to know customers in England, where acting in a reserved nature is pretty much the standard. So really, people generally very rarely stand out in any spectacular fashion. But it’s always very refreshing when it actually does happen. To be fair? Most people are too distracted by how “strange” and “different” I am to really notice anyone else. I can’t count the amount of times staff at work have called me weird.

Ultimately, I do enjoy my job but there are some very high stress factors that are quickly making the level of stress completely not worth it, especially for the abysmal pay rate in an expensive county. Especially with the money I’ve poured into this hobby of mine.

The problem is that I’m struggling to enjoy recording at the moment because I feel horribly unoriginal and uninspired- so I’ll never really get noticed which is ultimately my goal, as selfish as it sounds. I really like entertaining large crowds of people, so I always want to get noticed more so I can entertain more people. Unfortunately, because I don’t succumb to youtube underhanded methods to gaining subscribers (pushing like, sub, comment messages every video) I limit myself severely.

Man, youtubing is serious biz, wouldn’t you know?

To be fair, I don’t think there was any one time when I’ve watched a video on youtube and went, “Oh that’s right, the funny voices told me to subscribe! Silly me!”, or anything of the sort (in a less mocking fashion). Yet I’ve consistently liked most of your videos, not sure what that’s all about. In any case, I might have bad news for you, Badger, sir.

You might have to start a Minecraft series. I know, it was supposed to be left unspoken. But we have to face the music, that’s where all the bitches be at.

Err, well okay. So maybe the youtube business model is a bit over my head, honestly I wouldn’t know a thing about it! But you sure do have people who are very entertained by you already, so it’s definitely a solid step you are on. A bit of whoring around wouldn’t hurt, I guess, but that’s for you to decide!

I will tell you this, reserve is definitely not the American policy. Sadly the american policy doesn’t have any kind of comfortable middle ground, either, so instead everyone tries to be as much in your face as possible. Be it the rich Jewish man who compliments you on being born as if he really knows you because that’s how he gets along in life; the Russian lady with her expensive purse who comes in crying and spilling out her horrors onto me just so I would let her charge her phone in the store (which I’d do anyway); the cracked out man who’s always happy and flirtatious and has blood in his ears, who without fail comes in every week to have me fix this or that and pays me obscene money to do it. I don’t know which societal policy is worse. Neither is worth the minimal wage we get, either way. You being a bartender in England, and be being a Sales Rep in NYC making bullshit commission. You know what, worst case scenario, let’s quit our jobs and move to the woods.  Vlogging from a wooden cabin seems to be the hot topic right now.
