So not only am I stuck in the office tonight, but my usual barista at Starbucks - the surly, untalkative one who is actually very pleasant so long as you do not try to engage her in conversation (which is the mark of a good servant and something that the majority of you, bound for the service industry as you are, should remember) - was replaced with this cheery coffee afficionado who tried to talk to me the entire time I was there. I mean, do I care if someone's on the swim team at Columbia or that they're working at Starbucks for the summer for the tuition credit or if they like my hair? Who even says that? "Your hair is really pretty." Honestly. It's like that bike messenger who always makes me sign for Wanda's crap - like that's not Mark's job, for God's sake.

I mean, who writes their phone number on the cardboard sleeve, anyway? What am I going to do, give him feedback on his lattes? Besides, if you write over the drink order, people won't be able to tell what drink is theirs, and then things just descend into chaos. What do I do to make this happen?

Yana, don't look now but I think you just got hit on. By the way, did you get the flight plan for the jet?

From: [identity profile] x-snowflake.livejournal.com
Oh, please, like baristas hit on people. Or bike messengers.

Yes, I got the flight plan. Probably. I guess I should actually read my email, but usually it's just something boring from one of the old people.

In this case, reading your e-mail gets us off the ground and to Norway. Get to it, you! *whipcrack*

And baristas are all _about_ the hitting on people. Seriously, dude. Not sure about bike messengers though. What did he or she say to you? Is it that one that comes through here regularly? Cause he's kind of cute in a scruffy way.

From: [identity profile] x-snowflake.livejournal.com
Fine, fine. Since when did you get so uppity? If you weren't my roommate once upon a time, I would probably have to sabotage you in some way.

Why would a barista hit on me? Don't be stupid. And you would think the bike messenger is cute. He looks like a hobo. He probably is a hobo.

What can I say? I unfairly use your better nature against you. It's just my way.

Because you're hot? Like duh. Besides, blonde. Baristas have a thing for blondes, I'm told. And I do sort of have a thing for bringing home the homeless looking ones, don't I? Do not ask about the guy the other night at Silver.

I'm so glad Amanda dragged me home before I picked him up.

From: [identity profile] x-snowflake.livejournal.com
At least you admit to the existence of my better nature, which many stupid and unworthy people do not.

Are you hitting on me now? Please. I don't wear make-up unless Monet makes me, and I wear the same outfit practically every day. Also, your tendency toward losers has been noted. Remember Manuel? Case in point. So at least the homeless-looking ones are a step up.

Wait. Someone told me once I shouldn't bring up past conquests as it is awkward. Oh, well; it is part of my unique charm and you will have to live with it.

Date: 2008-06-09 03:45 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-jubilee.livejournal.com
*snorts* Nah, I'm strictly into guys, dude. And of course you have a better nature. You didn't smother me in my sleep while we were roommates several times. This is to be noted as a good thing.

And gah, no mentioning of the Manuel thing. I was temporarily insane, and that's what I'm sticking with.

Did you see the skater boy guy the other day who came by to deliver the pizza? He totally told me to give you his number. I threw it in the trash. (See what a good friend I am? Protecting your delicate sensibilities and all.)

From: [identity profile] x-snowflake.livejournal.com
Well, if I'd smothered you in your sleep, we probably would have had to deal with some moron as our roommate instead. Even if your laundry did talk, you were the lesser of all the other evils. Besides, you never thought I was evil, which was a rarity in those days.

Well, I know you were insane. It's not like it's not obvious. But at least it provides you with a good base level from which to judge everyone else. So his existence therefore is somewhat worthwhile.

Why do these boys give me their number? Isn't a tip enough? Do I really need to evaluate his pizza delivery? I don't understand. Who gets that excited about pizza?

Date: 2008-06-09 03:56 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-jubilee.livejournal.com
Shhh! Other people aren't meant to know I'm insane. It's like, a total secret. Keep it under your hat like.

And they want you to call them up and make with the hot sexxor, dah. How long has it been since you went on a date?

I wear shoes when it is totally necessary. Otherwise THERE ARE NOT SHOES I CAN WEAR. I am destroyer of shoes. I mean, seriously, do I need to send you a picture of my feet or something?

From: [identity profile] x-snowflake.livejournal.com
You take pictures of your feet? And I'm the weird one? God, you X-people are freaks. Do you have to, like, pay people to indulge your foot fetish or something? I saw on TV that sometimes people do that and then they get into drugs and their lives disintegrate. So make sure you document it for my amusement, okay?

Date: 2008-06-09 03:43 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-wildchild.livejournal.com
Okay, I totally do not have a foot fetish, and I only said it like, as a joke.

Whatever. At least all my weird is visible out where you can see it and isn't hidden under a layer of Hot Blonde.

Or I could accompany you to stalk this barrista, and depending on his personal level of hotness, crank call him mercilessly.

Explain this crank calling; it sounds fun, and also like a good lesson for someone who might have caused me to take someone else's latte, turning the entire system on its head.

Ah, my child, you have not been initiated into the mysterious that it a crank call?

Basically we prank phone call him. Usually it starts out with substandard lines such as "Is your refridgerator running?" and when answered in the afirmative, declare "then you'd better go catch it!"

I on the other hand, have much more sohpisticated faire. Like pretending to get aroused whenever the other person says "the" or "this", pretending I have tourette's, or that my name is Robert and I am collecting for the American Transexual's Fund.
