M'am. If you ever call me "baby" again... I'm going to make your drink (venti caramel frappuccino with a shot of espresso and extra coffe, 2% milk, no whip, extra caramel inside the cup and on top and a dome lid "so it doesn't smash the caramel") a decaf. And use whole milk. And... I don't know. Something else!
That goes for ALL OF YOU, customers! Condescending terms of endearment are not an acceptable way to speak to your barista. This includes but is not limited to: dear, sweetie, honey, and also repeating my name an unnecessary amount of times. "Sarah, please make sure that's a SKINNY LATTE! Did you get all that, Sarah? Sarah, if you wouldn't mind..."
"And death is at your doorstep
And it will steal your innocence
But it will not steal your substance
But you are not alone in this"
