Yo! Starbucks! It Can Be Done!



In other words "Please keep your children from running amok, bothering other customers, and generally being a real pain in the ass. They can act-a-fool, they just can't do it here".

Shockoe Coffee in VA. My new favorite-ist place. Any coffee house that can tell its customers to, you know, supervise their own children? And do so with with subtle, witty sarcasm?...well...that's just tits.

Awesome new banner! Girl, how do you stay so skinny?!!?

I love the signs in stores that say "Unattended children will be given a shot of espresso and a puppy."

Karen said...

That's precisely why I use the drive-through. The only kids I have to deal with are my own.

Wow! New header! I loves it. I also love that there are very seldom children in Starbucks, other than my own. She's a perfect angel *cough*liar*cough*, so that hardly matters.

My daughter has some sort of special coffeehouse mode and turns into a wide-eyed, polite little urchin with beseeching eyes. And the baristas say "Awww, she's so sweet! She's so darling! I love her!" and they give her FREE STUFF. I'm sure this would include puppies, were there a basket of puppies next to the danish.

I know I should be thankful, but the whole thing kind of irritates me because she save all her best asshattery for me, alone, at home. The baristas at Starbucks? They get the liquid sunshine.

Thanks for the compliments on the new header. We were looking through our vacation photos and Boy-Child#1 commented that this particular photo looked like an album cover. So I got inspired!

Madame Queen~ Normally I would say diet and exercise and I'd be correct in saying so. However, that has been completely absent lately and I fear it is all going to catch up with me!

Karen~ my local Starbucks doesn't have a drive thru but I would petition heavily for it!

Burgh Baby~ I'll have to start going to yours. It may be worth the trip. Ours is full of em. I think when the ladies in my neck of the woods hear "coffee" it's pronounced "playdate".

Melanie~ the other people's children at my Starbucks save all their best asshattery (oh that rules!) for me too!

Love the new header pic. I need that sign in my house.

Lulu said...

Hey skinny girl, love the new header! And what beautiful children you own.

Tootsie Farklepants said...

HRH~ I think I'm going to frame it and set it on my table in any and all eating establishments. Too much?

lulu~ Why, thank you! I think they're pretty awesome too. Even though when I put in my order for a girl I asked for blue eyes and dark hair like her daddy...but she'll do. :)

That is great - you should see if they'll actually do it!

Groovy Mom said...
