Starbucks customer service is #1

I have dealt with many companies over the years.  Some have good customer service, some have bad.  Starbucks has the best customer service of any company, ever.  If I have to contact them for anything, they get back to me quickly and do their best to resolve my issue.  Whether it's a phone call, e-mail, or in store, they are the best.  On Friday, I got the wrong drink (Which is extremely rare)  It's only happened once before and I've been going to Starbucks for YEARS.  I went in today to get my usual and told them about the incorrect drink on Friday and they gave me the drink I was supposed to get on Friday.  I was willing to pay for it, but they comped it because of the error.  Most places would have said, "so sorry, you should have come back on Friday."  

Starbucks, you have the best customer service representative by phone, e-mail, and in store.  Thank you for being the best darn coffee shop ever!

Sailor Moon S and Starbucks.

I made it to Sailor Moon S today.  I've only watched the first two episodes so far.  I am going to watch more after I type this up.  I found out that the drink I got from Starbucks was actually a cinnamon almond milk macchiato. I contacted Starbucks and they told me.  It wasn't bad, but I prefer my Cascara latte!  Next time I'll be sure to check it before I get home.  I've never had an issue with the wrong drink before... wait.. once.  I got a peppermint white mocha a long time ago and they gave me a peppermint mocha instead.  That was fixed asap!  My favorite barista was still there then. I miss her! She was so sweet.

So, if you like cinammon, give that drink a try.  It had a nice fall feel to it.  I want to try the new Maple Pecan latte. I love maple and I love pecans.  It sounds so good.  I just don't want to become addicted to it and only be able to get it seasonally like the PSL peeps!  Maybe I can catch them on a night when they have samples.  

This blog post brought to you by the letter S!


Hmmm.....

So, I finally got my pen pal letters written today! I'll try to mail them out tomorrow. I went by Starbucks and brought home a drink.  I asked for a Cascara latte as I usually get it.  It wasn't right.  I'm not sure what I got, but it had a cinnamon flavor to it.  It was very strange!  The receipt doesn't say cascara latte either.  It has "cacmlatte" I thought maybe a caramel macchiato, but they don't taste like cinnamon!  I still don't know what I got. lol

 


It IS Thursday!

So, I had to run out this evening to do an errand.  I decided to turn the radio on in my car.  I have it tuned to the Classical Station. I turned it on and heard Opera.  I turned if off and said, "Opera! It's not Thursday!"  And then it hit me.  Yeah it is. LOL!  This particular station has an opera night on Thursdays.  I guess I didn't have enough coffee today! :P

I got my errands done and came home and had dinner.  I am going to have a cup of coffee after this and hopefully get my letters written.  I feel bad having put it off so long. It makes me want to just keep putting it off, but that isn't fair to my pen pals.  I was very tempted to get Starbucks while I was out, but I was good and didn't go.  Perhaps tomorrow or sometime this weekend.  

I'm still watching Sailor Moon. I'm getting close to the end of Sailor Moon R.  I am ready for S.  Bring me Haruka and Michiru, please! Sailor Pluto was just introduced a few episodes ago.  Chibi Usa is still just Chibi Usa.  I can't remember when she becomes Chibi Moon, but I'm thinking it's probably soon.  I'm enjoying re-watching the series and being able to see the pretty art.  

I watched a bunch earlier today, but I took a break and I've been doing other stuff.  It's not possible to watch subtitled anime and do something else at the same time! I don't want to miss anything.  I think the series gets better and better starting with Sailor Moon S.  The first arc of Sailor Moon Super S is one of my favorites!  

Right now, I am watching Beach TV.  It's a channel from Myrtle Beach that you can stream on the Roku. It's fun seeing familiar places at my favorite place.  It's also giving me some ideas of new places to try on my next visit! ^_^.


Ah so....

Yeah, not really in the mood to post tonight.  It's been a long day.  I've had more issues with the house. ~_~;  My workouts today were tough, too.  I was really sweaty when I got done.  It was extremely hot here today.  It was in the 90's and it's September. UGH!  Hopefully, the fall weather will start soon. I can hope!


Good grief!

So, last night as I was winding down for bed, I started hearing some strange noises.  They were coming from the window where my air conditioner is.  I thought maybe an animal was on the ledge outside or something. I investigate and the sounds are coming from inside the air conditioner.  It's an old one, so it could just be wearing out.  I had to take it out of my window and put my back up one in after 1 am. ~_~;  Luckily I was able to do it pretty quickly and then get relaxed again so I could go to bed.  I re-adjusted everything today to make it fit better.  I just wanted to get it in last night.  It was totally dark outside as the streetlight near my house is always out.  

I don't usually use this particular air conditioner because it likes to leak inside.  So far it's done okay.  It's actually colder than my other one.  it must have really been dying, because it used to be really cold.  I guess I can make it through the rest of the season with this one.  I am going to try to rig up some kind of pan to put under in in case it decides to start leaking.  It also has a remote control, but I haven't used this air conditioner in so long, I have no clue where the remote is.  I have one place I'm going to check after posting this.  If it's not there, I'm really at a loss.  It is probably in one of the boxes I have in my storage room.  AHHHH!


Too much coffee?

No, not really, but I think I set a record for myself today! :P  I had six cups of coffee, and one of those was Starbucks!  I had no plans to go to Starbucks today.  I had planned to stay in and relax while doing my regular Sunday chores.  I was in the middle of an episode of Sailor Moon when my phone rang.  It was my friend that I'm always trying to get to go to Starbucks with me.  She wanted to go to Starbucks! LOL!  I couldn't say no when I ask her all the time, now could I? :P  We went and I got a cascara latte and a chocolate chip cookie. :p  It was good.

I did my workouts today, washed my bed linen and put it back on the bed, washed my hair, washed another load of clothes.  Those I need to check on and see if they are ready for the dryer. I also ran out to the post office.  I only got one letter.  Phooey!  I plan to write my letters tomorrow and get them all caught up.  I'll try to mail them tomorrow too, if possible.  I am so behind on everything! Sheesh!

OH! I watched all four of the new Adventure Time episodes on PS VUE. I have Adventure Time as one of my favorite shows so it saved all four of the new episodes.  They were all good, but they just left me wanting more.  They need to put out episodes in a timely manner.  I know there isn't a lot of the show left, but I want to see what I can.  


Weekend whimsy

So, today has been a regular day.  I got up and did my usual morning things.  Coffee was involved. :p  After breakfast, I started watching more Sailor Moon.  I'm now more than half way through season 1.  I just finished episode 26.  Makoto has arrived and Minako isn't too far behind!  I've been enjoying it.  I even mowed some on the lawn and did my workouts.  I watched an episode of Cold Case Files on Youtube too.  I didn't go anywhere today.  I decided after going out yesterday, I would just spend the day here today.  Plus, I had plenty to watch.  I'm so ready to get to season 2.  Everything really starts rolling then.  I just hope Hulu keeps it on until I can get through all 200 episodes!  I still have all my fansubs, but like I said, the quality on some of them is horrible.  Plus it's VHS! :P

I am going to do my French lesson on Duolingo, and then I think I'll settle in and relax a bit before bedtime.  I think I'll save watching more episodes until tomorrow.  I really need to write pen pal letters.  I planned to do that tonight, but I got so wrapped up in Sailor Moon, I sort of let it slip.  Oops!  Well, I'll try to get them written tomorrow and then get them mailed. I need to check my box for new ones.  I sent myself a post card while at the beach and I sent it to my po box and not my home address, so I should have at least that waiting for me. ^_^


Sailor Moon, Starbucks, and stuff....

So, I rode with a friend of mine to Greensboro today for her doctor's appointment.  Her son went too.  He has been watching Sailor Moon and it made me want to re-watch it.  I saw that it was on Hulu, so I have started over from the beginning.  The quality is so good.  I'm an old time fan from the fan sub days.  The quality of some of those tapes was SO BAD.  This is such a treat being able to watch it like this!  I am up to the episode before Ami-chan shows up.  I'm waiting on Rei because she is and always has been my favorite.  I'm enjoying watching it.  I had to figure out how to make the subtitles show on Hulu, but I did and now I'm good!

As for Starbucks, my friend who had to go to Greensboro asked me yesterday if I'd go.  I said yes, if I got to go to a Starbucks. LOL  I went to one I've been to before but it's been a long time.  I will be able to add it to my tracker.  They also had stickers!  The barista give me eight of them. :D  These are a lot smaller than the one I got at the beach and they are clear around the Siren.  I put four on my Macbook. :P  I'll use the others for bullet journalling.  Speaking of my bujo, I didn't get around to making my beach trip page last night.  I think I'm going to wait until I get some ink for my printer so I can put some of the pictures I took on my trip in there.  I think that would be cool.

While in Greensboro, we went to P.F. Chang's for lunch.  I had an email that had, 'buy one entree, get one free' so we did that.  I was broke, so that was the only way I could have eaten.  Well, she was going to get my lunch for going with her, but I told her about the deal I had to save her some money. ^_^ I told her since I saved her money on lunch she should have bought my Starbucks! LOL!

It was a full day.  I came home and watched some Night Court and then I looked for Sailor Moon and found it on Hulu.  They have all 200 episodes. I just hope they don't take them off before I can re-watch the entire show.  It's been a lot of years since I've seen it all.  It's still good, but there are some things that annoy me.  They translate Mamo saying "bun head" instead of "dumpling head".  Dumpling head just sounds better! LOL  Other than that, it's been great.  I know the translations are going to be different as the ones I watched were all fan done.  The quality of the episodes makes up for it.  After I finish the original Sailor Moon, I'll watch Crystal!

BTW, here is a picture of my Macbook with all it's goodies!
