NEWBIE, AHOY ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!

It was Birth of a Barista this morning at 7th and Montana as a new employee joined the family at Our Favorite Starbucks. I couldn't help wondering -- as he sat at a table, lost in thought -- if he knew what he was getting himself into. "Run," I felt like yelling, "Quickly, while you still have your sanity, head for the hills!" But then I realized just how important it is to give young people a chance. Plus, it's always nice to see a new face in the Starbucks line-up. Speaking of line-ups, get a load of the crowd (pictured below) that formed shortly after the Newbie donned his apron ...!

Godspeed, young Barista. You know not what you do. But we'll be here to support you from afar!

The line is his first test.

Some people operate better under pressure. Hope this newbie Barista is one of them...lol...!

I hope the customers at 7th and Montana are patient and understanding.

I remember working in a fast food place and we had bus loads come in, talk about lines. It sure made the night go quicker though, so hopefully that line will make his day go by quicker, lol.

The last new employee at my Starbucks looked "scared doe," and other customers told her: Don't worry everyone is nice. I gave her more useful information: The manager is here to handle rude, impossible people. They DO COME. Use the manager liberally; she is paid a lot more than you are.
