Security guards and special treatment

  • Well, the residency requirement for my new citizenship status at Starbucks is almost complete: Today I have begun to befriend the security guard, who spends pretty much all day just sitting in a chair waiting for something interesting to happen. I know I've really become accustomed to a place when I start befriending the security guard.

  • Okay, this is just too strange. I have been here for about 5 hours today, and just now the guy behind the counter walked over and brought me a free venti iced chai tea latte! They know my drink! They're treating me like an Important Person who deserves to be brought chais! Nevermind the fact that it was probably just a screwed up order that they figured I would drink because, "Hey, that redhead American guy likes chais, doesn't he?" Nevermind the fact that I've already had TWO iced chais today, just finishing the last one about 10 minutes ago, and I am officially stuffed. The point is, they're treating me like a High Roller! A High Roller, Jerry! I feel like I'm at the Bellagio!

    PS - I am so caffeinated, I won't be able to sleep until Tuesday!!

I was wondering...are you getting any special treatment because you're from America.

Us guys here in America love women with an accent, especially a london accent.
Anything like that over there? Are the London women fawning over you because of your American accent...or is the Dubya's foreign policy really impairing the ability of Americans to get laid abroad?

This is an important foreign policy question Matt!
