small suck at Starbucks.

this isn't a huge suck, but I do think it was a little rude/inappropriate.

on a recent flight back to Florida from Seattle, I had a layover at Detroit metro airport. while waiting for my connecting flight, I decided to get some Starbucks.

there were 2 young women in front of me in the line, both were wearing short shorts and v-cut shirts. after they ordered and left the line, I step up to the counter and right as I open my mouth to order, the cashier and another barista start making [what I think are] inappropriate comments about the ladies, right in front of me, them, and the rest of the line!

barista #1 to #2: "mmhm, I know what you wanna get in. damn they look good as hell."
barista #2: *laughs* "yeah boy, I'm gonna put some extra syrup up in that"

...... are you kidding me? that's verbatim what was said. I just kinda stood there looking like a deer in the headlights, ordered, and got out of there as quick as I could. there's nothing wrong with finding people attractive, but making comments about them in front of other customers? just seems kinda rude and unnecessary.
