Barista Boy #1 (doesn’t know I’m pregnant): What would you like today?
Me: A venti decaf black and white mocha.
Barista Boy #2 (knows I’m pregnant): You’re having decaf? Oh! Right! Decaf!
Me: Yes. It’s decaf from now on.
Barista Girl #1 (knows I’m pregnant): She’s having a Starbucks baby!
Me: Who will probably smell like coffee.
Barista Boy #1 (clearly confused): That’s… weird.
Barista Boy #1 (now knows I’m pregnant): I’m sorry I said it would be weird if your baby smelled like coffee.
Me: It’s okay.
Barista Boy #1 (so earnestly): I’m sure it’ll be a cute baby and no one will make fun of it for smelling like coffee.
Me: I think you should quit while you’re ahead.
