4. Reaching the counter and still not knowing what you want
Dillydallying at the counter holds up the line, which is annoying to both customers and the barista. There is a menu board up for everyone to see, make good use of it while you’re in line. It’s your first time at Starbucks, fine, but it’s not your first time to read.
5. Starting with a joke
So you’re a bit nervous and think that starting off with a little joke will help break the ice. Well, as far as the barista standing in front of you is concerned, there is no ice to break. Save yourself the embarrassment of receiving an obviously fake smile and get on with your order.
