I generally order a "medium-size coffee" at Starbucks. I let them figure out the rest.

"just give me whatever your small is"
"a tall?"
"yeah sure, if that's your small."

I can assure all of you Starbucks baristas HATE the names of the sizes more than the customers do. If they ever get caught referring to drinks as "small, large, etc." they get their asses handed to them. Yes, they are ordered to argue with customers over it even. They are not supposed to give you your drink until you acknowledge it's a Vinte or whatever rather than medium or large or whatever the fuck

I hope you eventually run into a barista who informs you that the French spelling of "Rambo" is R-I-M-B-A-U-D.

Where on earth do you live? I worked at Starbucks in high school and none of this was true at any of our stores.

Houston, TX. I never worked there but know tons who did. (and do).

Also they all go calls and texts at 4 am so the store manager could chat them up about coffee. If they didn't respond, they got screamed at the next work day haha

If you stick around you will learn that javyns imagination, eager to make some trivial point, frequently ignores inconvenient impediments like reality.

Remember to use cash though, sometimes they look at my card to get my name and don't ask me my name.

I work PT at a coffee shop, we also have 4 sizes. Personally, I think this is not worth the trouble. People understand 3 sizes. Small, medium, large. 3 sizes! Easy! But, I am not the boss.

Yea, it's SO hard to figure out Starbucks' sizes.
