please, Bitch


:D hello all. i've been peeking at this community for a while, but this is the first time i've run into something so peculiar i felt the need to post. i was hoping others could tell me: was it just me being an idiot? or could it be that i'm EVIL and just dont know it!?

i'm an artist, and last weekend i hosted my first opening in the art community where i live. a few days before, my boyfriend and i were puttering about town, putting up fliers for it in all the flier-friendly places we knew of (every place else we'd asked had been perfectly nice about it, even when they said no). there is this little coffee shop that i'd really liked, they'd even had my cards on their business card table for awhile. i hadn't been able to go for several months but i thought i was hungry and they had good sandwiches and it was a good place to post about artsy goings-on.
so in we went.

so much for my favorite cute little coffee shop.

i mean...was it just me? was my flier truly evil? was i really so out of line?
she was scary.
but damn, they made good chai tea *pouts*
coffee, cup

Panera Bread question?

Funny that this is going to be the second post about PB in the last two days. Mine is short and contains much less suck, but I have a question for anyone who works at/knows anything about them.

My boyfriend and I go to Panera pretty often, to three different locations in our area. Every single time, he orders a large frozen lemonade. Every single time, they repeat the order back and charge him the correct amount. Then, the cashier, who just verified the order, will go to make his drink. And every--single--time, they give him a small. Doesn't matter where it is, every single location and every single employee has done it.
So he'll politely point it out, and the employee will apologize and quickly make him a brand new one in the correct size, and let us keep the small, which I think is very nice... mostly because I end up getting the original one every time :]

It's just funny that it happens constantly. Is there some reason for this that we're missing? It's not like they don't have it in their computers-- we've looked at the receipts, and they've very plainly stated "1 FZ LEMON LG @ 3.79". What's going on, Panera??
