Muffins and Fate

Today at Starbucks the barista gave me a pumpkin muffin instead of the blueberry one I wanted. I was pissed at first but still hungry so I took a bite. Hunger always overrides pissed.

It was pretty good, but I was still pissed. My tastebuds were all set for blueberry.

That gets my mind working. Is that a sign? Am I ordering something but getting something else on purpose? Am I destined to make lemonade out of the lemons that were given to me instead of apples?
Is the great fates of the universe giving me a sign?
Should I change my life or my outlook?
OR

Is the barista at Starbucks just dumb?

  1. I used to work at starbucks... pumpkin muffins > blueberry muffins.

    Way more fat though. But if you want a good blueberry muffin, go elsewhere. Starbucks blueberry muffins are hard and dry.

  2. My vote? She's just dumb, or she was told to push the flavor of the month muffins.

  6. I went to Starbucks this a..m too and ordered the Pumpkin Spice Latte. (Never liked pumpkin until I was pregnant. And then I CRAVED it! And even though that was a while back, I still LOVE me some pumkpin.) Also had one of those pumpkin muffins too. I wolfed both down before I even got home so I could hide the evidence from my hubby.

  7. I am mad because Dunkin Donuts doesn't put the crystallized sugar on top of their blueberry muffins anymore. That was the best part!

  9. Here's what I'd do: take a bite and then go to the counter and tell them you ordered pumpkin and they gave you blueberry and that you want a pumpkin muffin. I don't think they'd take back the blueberry since you'd already taken a bite, so you'd get two for the price of one! Take that Starbucks!

  10. I say they are messing up the order on purpose to get rid of the pumpkin stuff before Christmas. Just a hunch....

  11. Maybe I whould have eaten the whole thng before I "discovered" it was the wrong kind.

    Too bad I waited until I got home to eat it. THAT is self control!

  14. Ok having been a manager at starbucks **AHEM** when you go back kindly tell them that in your haste the other day they gave you the wrong muffin and you did not have time to return to exchange it, and POOOF you will get a free muffin.
    Oh and also mention you asked for extra hot and it was not so you were also upset about that and POOF free drink.
    Oh yes. Starbucks how i miss you.. also how I take advantage of you...lol
