Barista Robb was more whipped up than one of his double-foam cappuccinos this morning as an Ornery Customer with an Attitude made a scene at Our Favorite Starbucks.  The fun began when the Customer-in-Question, a woman described by witnesses as "an Evil Munchkin," began giving another customer a tough time before starting-in on Robb.  Poor Robb.  If it's any consolation, I couldn't help noticing last week that the Baristas in Tokyo have similar problems on their hands.  On Friday, an Obvious Maniac with a Winnie-the-Pooh Fixation (pictured above) settled-in for the duration at the Starbucks at Shinagawa Station ...!

It's really something how evil munchkins can really make the worst of things, particularly when they deal with people who have to at least pretend to be kind to them.
I don't know what I would have done about Winnie, though.

Seems the lighting in the Starbucks in Tokyo is as dire as at 7th and Montana!

Kinda look like a "Stick Em Up Winnie" give me all the coffee you got to go NOW!
I've never understood rude obnoxious behavior towards complete strangers, especially servers. Kind of makes you want to ask them if it's their perogative to make everyone around them as miserable as they apparently are....(Hugs) Indigo

No...now people, let's keep it inperspective here...  BOTH of those show what happens with too much exposure to a good thing (Starbucks).  Look at B.B.'s eyes...either too many hours, or too much sampling of the goods.  And well, our little Asian bear there...now he's just a complete study in EVERY philosophy. ;)  C.
