So, I swing by a Starbucks on my way into the office this morning and pick myself up a latte. Nothing out of the ordinary yet.
Now comes the odd part. This lady behind me (who I had noticed walking from a table outside where her husband was sitting with their Dachshund - important to note that I had also noticed that her and her husband both already had drinks) tells the barista that she needs the usual for her dog. That perked my ears up, but then I just assumed that she had intended to get her wiener dog a cup of water, so the whole thing tailed off for me.
Then, I notice that the barista does not get her a cup of water, but instead shoots 3 pumps of vanilla syrup into a child-size coffee cup. I'm captivated at this point, so as I'm waiting for my to-be-drank-by-a-human latte, I continue to pay attention to what's going on. The end result of the coffee cup that started with three pumps of vanilla is a vanilla steamer (steamed milk) with whipped cream.... for the dog.
This situation officially turned into a bizarro world type of moment for me... the kind of moment where I started thinking that maybe I was the only person out there who doesn't get a Starbucks drink for their dog every morning. Is this a common thing? Are my dogs being abused because they're only drinking water?
