I know that this sounds so stupid, but I'm going to rant about it a little bit anyway...
If one more person orders a "cinnamon DOL-SAY latte" I might have a rage blackout.
Don't get me wrong... I'm not an idiot. I know Starbucks is the furthest thing from "authentic" ANYTHING. But... Come on y'all. How hard is it to pronounce dolce? Like really? I'm sure you've at least heard of Dolce & Gabbana. Just pretend you're saying that. Please?
And one more... About 90% of the people I've encountered from around these parts have the most irksome way of pronouncing latte. I can't blame them, per se, because most of it can be blamed on the accent. But it still makes my eye twitch a little bit after a long day.

And it will steal your innocence
