As the barista handed me my coffee, she asked, "Do you go with someone named Tim?" The query was so random and oddly stated that I couldn't help but repeat her exact words but in the form of a statement laughing through it all, "Yes, I go with Tim."
As if this whole exchange wasn't weird enough she stepped back from the drive-through window and announced to the entire staff of barista's (and if they were listening to the whole coffee shop), "Hey, this is Deb, she goes with Tim, so if you see Deb you'll, know she goes with Tim." The baristas crowded the window waved and greeted me by name.
I am still puzzling over the exchange at the coffee shop. The best I can come up with is it's my husbands extremely unique coffee order,(five shots of espresso over ice in a Venti cup) and my Starbucks is a good ol' neighborhood shop where everybody knows your name. Except, instead of shouting Norm, they'll be shouting "Tim, Deb!"
