Don't change me three flipping dollars for a cup and then give me red f*cking rose/


I saw the guy putting the bag in and was all

'Excuse me, Sir? NUH-UH'


We had a big fight. I told him red rose was cricket piss and for the amount charged I either wanted two bags or my money back, and he kept insisting it was 'very good' and 'popular'.


I got an extra bag.


But what's the crap. Don't be serving that sh*t in a nice cafe for so much.


He's giving me the evil eye right now.


Too bad I need the wifi

Ok but I asked for a scone at Starbucks and they gave me a croissant and I was so sad.

No idea what Red Rose is, but I can't stand the tea they serve in Starbucks here. Apparently, Costa uses Twinings tea, which I tend to like...

3 bucks will get you a huge ass BOX of red rose. That's some bullpoo.

Red rose is gross.

I didn't know what Red rose was so had to google it. The packaging did it no favours.

I really thought this was an argument about a guy giving you a red rose. Needless to say I had to reread like four times

My Mum was a "tea" hold out for years.......but finally succumbed to the lure of coffee.

I did wonder. If I bought a $3 cup of tea and the barrista gave me a red rose, I'd be surprised, but I don't think it would affect the taste of the tea much.

Instead of 2 bags of Red Rose, you should insist on a cup of 4 Roses instead...

That is the correct choice

I use red rose as a base in suntea. 8 packets of red rose, 5 packets of constant comment and 3 packets of mint. Gallon of water and 4-6 hours in the sun.

I had never heard of this tea until this journal.

Ordering tea anywhere is a crapshoot.

You're liable to just be thrown a cup of hot water and a bag of Twinings.

I forget what ship I was on that served this crap as the tea onboard. Carnival maybe? Holland America?

It was disgusting.

I hate how expensive a cup of tea is when you're out though. Like, it's literally just the cost of a cup and a tea bag.

It annoys me that cafes think they can charge almost as much for a cup of tea as they do for a cup of ground coffee. When all we had was instant coffee it was half the price. So when all this barista crap came along the cost of tea doubled just because the coffee was more expensive. Some places are starting to compensate by serving pots of tea with 3 cups full.

I used to bring my own tea bags to the Starbucks across from work. I'd sit there for lunch and have a free tea. Didn't feel bad about it because I'd buy overpriced coffee pretty regularly too

I got super dumped, guys.


So I called up my old college buddy and told him to pull out the air mattress because I was coming over to drink copious amounts of vodka and smoke a poo tonne of weed.

Aaaaannnnd while I was there I was walking around my old university town looking at the bakeries I used to love, and I thought 'hey I can afford rent in this town, maybe I should move here'

But it was labour day and everything was closed and the only pair of shoes I had was a GIANT pair of incredibly purple wellies


So I stayed another night, banged the guy like three time, got up early and hit the library. Printed off a few copies of my resume and some cake photos and grabbed a cheap display folder from the office store to make a portfolio.

Visited give bakeries/catering companies.

It's been less than 24 hours and I've alreadY got two interviews.

All high end, all day-shifters. WOO!

Also I bought super cute new shoes for when I was dropping the resumes .


Because culinary is casual but it ain't THAT casual

That sounds SO good. O.O I'm gonna have to try that!

And nice bouncing back, Sleepy! I don't think I would have been able to get back on to the horse that quickly, lol.
