So by a "tall" Starbucks-size coffee, they mean a small real life-size coffee. I love how Starbucks assigns retarded names to their coffee sizes.

I remember instances where I'm like, "I'd like a large please" and the girl is like, "So that's a mezzo?"

"I think mezzo means medium?"

"Well, we also have grande."

"Can I have a large coffee please?"

I've never heard of Starbucks using "mezzo." Is that a Canadian thing?

To whomever was asking, I work at the corporate headquarters. Good times.

Yeah, it's like that a lot around here. Especially when the stock price is down.

It's great, though. I dig it. Plus, I get to meet random celebrities when they come in to hob-nob with Howard Schultz.

Like, oh .... Bono.

I swear someone was stoned when they came up with that commercial. Everytime I saw it I lost 212.34 brain cells.

Alas, I do not know. I was not privy to their meeting.

I just caught him on his way out.

There's gotta be some upside for working for an evil multinational that's taking over the world....
