  • - If you ask for the hazelnut pump

  • with whipped cream on top,

  • that is a birthday cake coolatta and, ooh!

  • (funky synth music)

  • My name is Tealoni, I'm from Jersey City,

  • and I am a former Dunkin' employee.

  • - Hi, my name is Lyss and I'm a former Starbucks barista.

  • (funky synth music)

  • Ooh, the worst drink someone's ever ordered,

  • uh, this is my favorite.

  • There was this woman who got a grande cup

  • and she wanted 10 pumps of white mocha,

  • 10 pumps of vanilla syrup,

  • and then she just wanted whole milk.

  • I was shocked.

  • I had to clarify,

  • but I do remember it being maybe six in the morning

  • when she ordered this.

  • - This one person would order an onion bagel

  • with strawberry cream cheese and I just think,

  • that sounds nasty to me.

  • - Oh, and then there was another one who,

  • this woman used her free drink points

  • to get a venti hot cup filled with espresso shots.

  • It was over 30 shots of espresso that we put in that.

  • Almost didn't want to make it because I was nervous.

  • Are we gonna get in trouble for this, I just don't know.

  • But the customer's always right.

  • So we did this,

  • and when she left I just looked at my coworker

  • and I was like, "Did we just,

  • "did we just murder someone?"

  • (upbeat pop music)

  • - I think just talking and I guess being cute.

  • My male coworkers, if they found a girl cute or something,

  • they might give her a free donut

  • or a free thing on the end.

  • (upbeat pop music)

  • - I would probably go around 10 a.m.

  • because the likelihood of there being a huge line

  • is fairly slim.

  • - There's a early morning rush,

  • because people want it right before they're going to work.

  • Like, "Oh, I need my coffee."

  • Then lunchtime everyone comes in.

  • So I want to say anytime after noon, anytime before 7:30.

  • (chill hip hop beat)

  • - Definitely frappuccinos, it's takes some time.

  • And then if you're following the protocol of

  • we can only make one frappuccino in the blender at once,

  • yeah, I mean, that just slows you down.

  • - Any drink that you want to have this amount of sugar,

  • this amount of this, go inside,

  • 'cause if you're doing that through drive-thru

  • do not expect it to actually be what you asked for

  • because no one's really paying attention to that.

  • We're doing what we can.

  • (chill hip hop beat)

  • If you like vanilla chai,

  • they have frozen vanilla chai.

  • 10 of 10, 1,000 out of 10.

  • The best thing ever.

  • - One of my favorite food items is the grilled cheese.

  • Is it overpriced? Maybe.

  • Will I get in any way? Yes.

  • - Also, if you like birthday cake,

  • you basically just ask for a vanilla bean coolatta

  • but asked for hazelnut pump.

  • If you asked for the hazelnut pump

  • with whipped cream on top,

  • that is a birthday cake coolatta and ooh!

  • (bouncy hip hop music)

  • - I know that there has never been one.

  • We have no idea what you're talking about.

  • So just tell us what's in it and we're gonna do our best.

  • - There's no secret menu,

  • but people kind of would have

  • their own kind of custom things.

  • - There was this couple who asked me

  • for a grasshopper frappuccino.

  • I had no idea what that entailed and they didn't either.

  • So I just made a matcha frappuccino

  • with some mocha drizzle,

  • and I was like, "There you go,

  • "it's green and you have mocha

  • "because you're grasshoppers in the dirt."

  • (upbeat pop music)

  • - Okay, at the end of the night, if there's a lot of donuts,

  • we literally would have people sometimes come in

  • or even wait outside to get a free donut,

  • because if there's some at the end of the night,

  • we're not gonna always carry them over.

  • The most annoying thing is

  • "Can I have a free donut? Can I have a free donut?

  • "Oh, you're probably gonna throw this away anyway.

  • "Let me get this for free, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah."

  • That's annoying.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - When I was cleaning up our lobby, when I was mopping,

  • this guy asked me to marry him.

  • That just kind of creeped me out.

  • - I used to just be asked crazy things,

  • especially regarding my hair.

  • I would have my afro,

  • and I just remember this one guy,

  • he would always make comments about my hair.

  • He'd be like, "Oh, I hope I don't find

  • "one of those hairs up in my coffee today

  • "or blah, blah, blah, blah."

  • That's a bad experience that I had from a customer.

  • - And then there was this other guy.

  • I was doing our display case, so I was filling it.

  • And he grabbed my hand and then said

  • "It's as soft as I thought it would be."

  • (upbeat music)

  • - You need to be patient with baristas, okay,

  • because we're trying our hardest.

  • So be kind, be patient,

  • and you'll probably get a better drink that way.

  • - Be nice to your baristas.

  • Also, if you tip in the tip jar, we actually get it.

  • We split it.

  • - People often are like,

  • they want their coffee and they want it now.

  • And we're in 10 different places back there.

  • It may seem like, oh, we're just,

  • I don't know, chilling or whatever you may think.

  • But be a little bit more nice, patient.

  • Slow down when you say your order.

  • Saying it fast does not, we don't,

  • it doesn't make us make it any faster.

  • Slow down.

  • Help us help you make the coffee the best it can be.

  • (funky synth music)
