Starbucks Dialogue

I order a Venti Mocha at Starbucks. The barista--they now write the customer's name on every drink--says to me, "And what is your name, today?" Today my name is Chris. Tomorrow is a different story.

I find this practice really annoying. I tell them that my name is pronounced "Ah-na", and when the drink is ready they call for "Aaanna" (short vowels).

I'm just a brain pickled in a jar, hell-bent on fuzzy world domination.
