I don't talk a lot to the employees (because I feel like it would annoy them) but I do lean on the counter. It's actually really wierd and probably hilarious tp people behind me because I lean at like a 45 degree angle... socalbeachgal 4 years I'm a combo blackberrier, a food case starer and counter seducer. I know all about the baristas at my local Starbucks. fuzzles 4 years I don't normally get coffee from a shop. I make it at home.

Usually I'm the blankly stare at food-case girl though... Susannah-Chen 4 years I'm shocked nobody else is a Counter Seducer! I love the people who work at my Starbucks, so I'm always asking them how their weekend/vacation was. The people waiting in line behind me probably hate me.
