He's Just Not That Into Me

Yesterday I went to lunch with my handsome friend Jared.  He's super sweet too but handsome is the important part of this story. After lunch we decided to go up to my Starbuck's and try to make my barista boyfriend jealous.

I loved this idea and it was great for about the first 5 minutes.  First, Jared has discovered how to get to me to be quiet (he was very excited about this discovery)... apparently all you have to do it put me in the same room with the man I've had a secret crush on for a year.  I become mute.  So there was that.

And then, disaster struck.  I am still reeling from what happened next.

My barista boyfriend flirted with Jared.

Yeah, you read that right.

I am pretty sure it was the hunting knife in Jared's back pocket that did it for him.  It does it for me.  But kids, here's the rub, I feel so cheated, so wronged.  Its like my barista boyfriend has been lying to me for a year.  Like I was the only one in our relationship.  I thought I was reading the signs correctly.  I thought he was into me.  I thought my lattes were special. 

But Jared's latte was free. 


  1. Hahahaha, that last line just kills me.

    "I thought my lattes were special...

    ...but Jared's latte was free."

    You really are a great writer, Sherry. And there are other barista's in the Starbucks sea. You will know love again.


  2. The Legcay Starbucks barista will always welcome you with open arms-at least he does for "Striped Blue Shirt/shorts guy", "Prom Hair chick", "Perfect 10, handicap parker girl", "Cowboy shirt/potentially gay" guy and "Wiliam H.Macy" look alike guy. (I spend way too much time there with the regulars).
    Hang in there chickadee!

  3. Aw Sherry, at least you found out now instead of after another year. Hang in there...more baristas to come I'm sure :)
