his nametag says jim (who’s jim??? he doesn’t even know anyone named jim??)
taemin: pls stop spinning the mop you make cleanup so much harder than it needs to be and i am wet
writes the names wrong all the time, enjoy your latte, brick
lowkey (highkey) he looks like he hates his life when not smiling
memorized the entire corporate-approved playlist, singing under his breath while making coffees in an angry mocking way bc they won’t let him change it
corporate trying to keep him down but he won’t be broken
wears his visor backwards
when not in work keeps smelling coffee, asks everyone to smell him to see if they smell it too (key: “jong we work at a coffee store ofc we smell like coffee” / jonghyun: “BUT I SHOWERED LIKE THREE TIMES”)
arrives to work with starbucks from another location
HATES MAKING FRAPPES
but literally when his shift starts a group of people always come in and get frappes
he’s smiling but his smile is not really a smile you know???
had to fend for himself bc onew hid in the closet when he saw that group because he need to “look for coffee beans” so he locked him in for a bit and “forgot how to unlock it”
free cake pops tho
cute latte art!!!! it’s not required but he learned how to do it through youtube and sometimes minho-made coffee have cool designs on them
after closing time, has flipped a table (╯ㅍ□ㅍ）╯︵ ┻━┻)
bc he always wanted to try that
it wasn’t as fun as he expected it to be and plus he had to pick it up after which defeated the purpose
lifting competition with jong on who can squat the most bags of coffee beans (they’re both red and sweating and look dumb af)
puts too much whip on order, coffee pours out of the sides and he is panicking
honestly he just struggles with that whip cream canister in general
puts mobile order stickers over the starbucks logo
Over the past 40 years we’ve grown a lot, and so has The Siren! She was chosen at Starbucks’ birth to reflect the seafaring history of coffee and Seattle, our hometown. Today, she serves as the welcoming face of Starbucks worldwide.
The Begrudging Starbucks AU.The world is winter and steamed milk and creamy espresso shots. The world is a never ending queue. The world is a Starbucks logo and a pink-cheeked smile from Niall and a bored scowl from Zayn and the world is Louis watching his best mate, Liam, fall in love with their newest customer, Harry. Who may or may not be in love with Louis. The world is cruel.
“So,” Louis asks dragging out the vowel sound and raising an eyebrow. “Heard you wanted a tattoo?” “Oh! Um….Yeah.” Pebbles stutters his voice huskier than Louis anticipated from his first word and appearance. “This!” He exclaims, holding out the drawing in his hand. It’s a sketch of a large butterfly in shades of black and grey. Or an AU where Harry works in a coffee shop and Louis works in a tattoo shop. Chance encounters bring them together and they go from there.
“Gracie loves faeries, don’t you, little love?” Louis asks, cutting through Harry’s thoughts, and she spares a glance over her shoulder at her father, nodding quickly before looking back at the house and touching it with gentle fingers. Harry looks up at him, and they share a small smile, Louis making him feel warm, warm, warm. “This is her house, and it’s my favorite thing in my shop,” Harry explains, and Louis crouches slightly so he can see it better. “’S beautiful,” he murmurs, and Harry smiles appreciatively at him. Harry looks at Gracie again, blonde hair falling into her face as she inspects the glittery house, and he instinctively tucks her hair back behind her ear. “I’ve never seen the faerie,” he says to her softly, “but sometimes, when it’s very quiet, I can feel her.” He closes his eyes, taking in a breath, just sitting like that for a few seconds for the effect. “That’s how I know she’s watching over me.” Or, the one where Louis has a quiet little girl, Harry has a toy shop with a magic faerie house, and they were made to fall in love.
