Actual Interaction at Starbucks yesterday

Adorable Little Starbucks Girl: What can I get started for you?
Me: Iced grande decaf nonfat vanilla latte (Yes, that's right)
ALSG: Okay
Adorable Little Starbucks Boy: Decaf?!?
Me: Yeah. You don't want to see me on the news--High School Teacher Strangles Student!
ALSG: What school?
Me: Ghetto High*
ALSG: (Nodding) Decaf

Such is my life.

Thank God you exist. I used to think my grande sugar-free vanilla soy lattes were pretentious, but now at least I'm not alone.
