I'm working as a Starbucks barista (technically a barnes and noble employee, I just work at the starbucks there) Ask me any questions you want.
Some things to get out the way though
There's no such thing as a iced cappuccino, if someone asks for it, either we tell them that or we serve them a iced latte (or both). The reason why there's no such thing as a iced cappuccino is because it requires foam which goes away if it gets cold and creates a breeding ground for bacteria and shit.
The two biggest bitches to make are the cappuccino and the caramel macchiato.
Caramel macchiato isn't really hard or anything, it just takes a while, which is annoying when there's a large line.
Cappuccino isn't really hard to understand or anything, it just takes more practice to get down since it's very easy to screw it up since you have a smaller timeframe to perform it. There are two types of people who order cappuccinos, people who don't know jack shit about coffee and get pissed because this isn't what they expected and people who big coffee lovers and expect it to get done perfectly.
Dinner Party From Hell

Yesterday was the worst dinner I have ever had. I make a rule of not socializing with coworkers, and I should not have broken it. This may take 2 posts, it was THAT bad.
6 coworkers met at someone's house yesterday under the pretense of "Irish stew". I grudgingly accepted the invitation and arrived at 2 pm (when I was told to come). I brought traditional soda bread that had to be baked first. The host made a bit of a stink about using the oven when he had other things in there, but I told him I wanted it fresh.
The stew was still cooking and the host was already drinking alcohol at this time. In the middle of a conversation with a member of the opposite sex, the host tells me, "Please, no talk about politics. PLEASE not today". I said if more people talked about politics we would be in a better country, and he got very argumentative so I just dropped it.
I was drinking apple juice that I brought over and the host kept trying to get me to have a beer. He was obviously intoxicated and starting saying how maybe I would be relaxed and "cooler" if I had some alcohol. It was pathetic, like peer pressure from a high school TV show.
Anyway, at that point I became withdrawn and went for a walk. I came back right before dinner, and that is when the fun started.
He made "Irish stew" with beef, carrots, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, hot sauce, oregano, tomato, and various ingredients. I started telling others that proper Irish stew should only contain mutton, potato, onion, and water, and that beef, tomato, black pepper, hot sauce, and other ingredients would not be available then and therefore it was a modern stew, not Irish stew.
We started eating and someone asked me about what I had said about real Irish stew. The host looked annoyed so I told him. He turned red and told me if I didn't like it I could "get the fuck out and take my apple juice with me".

Was tired yesterday, so I ate early, about 9, and went to bed. Woke up about 30 minutes ago at 6, starving to death. Not due up for another 5 hours or so I scavenged the house for something to eat.
To my dismay I was out of microwave pizzas, but did have a Tonys 4 -cheese pizza I generally reserve to eat when I have spaghetti or some other pasta.
While pre-heating the oven I looked in the fridge for toppings to add, which I usually select cut up hot dogs, pre-cooked bacon, any kind of leftovers, even slim jims. But my disability and social security didn't go in the bank until midnight tonight, so my fridge was nearly empty!
Then I saw it, two stacks of delicious kraft sliced cheese. I took two slices of American and two slices of Swiss and checkered them on the tonys, and upon hearing the beep of the oven, inserted this grand idea into the cooking machine.
12 minutes later, I have this! Amazing idea! No idea why I hadn't thought of adding more cheese to the pizza before, will have to become a regular thing.

Holla, mycollege niggas, I started university about 6 weeks ago (Chemical Engineering @ École Polytechnique de Montréal) and I just wanted to have a discussion on the tastiest, healthiest, cheapest and quickest foods to make.
Anyone here use sriracha sauce? I put that shit on everything. I've used up a 750mL bottle in a little less than a month.
Breakfast: Egg bagel sandwich. While I'm cooking the egg, I'll put a handful of spinach into it and fry it all in a pan into sort of a patty and then I put it on the bagel. On top, I put slices of avocado, shredded cheddar, and a bunch of sriracha.
Supper: Fettucine topped with spaghetti sauce and sriracha or Rice Vermicelli topped with shredded cheese and sriracha.
I also get a McGangBang about 1-2 times/week when I'm chilling with the homies.
I feel like I'm not getting enough fruits/vegetables or meat, any suggestions? What vitamins am I missing? And do you guys take any supplements that are cheap? And what do you guys eat?
