Actual conversation with 24-hour drive-thru Starbucks guy

Me: Do a lot of people come through here at night?

Him: Yeah, actually. We've gotten a lot of business lately. I think it has a lot to do with prom season.

Me: Ah.

Him: Yeah, I–are you still in high school or college or. . . ?

Me: I'm in college.

Him: Okay, I'll just say this then–I hate teenagers! I cannot stand them! Like, have you seen Drive? That Ryan Gosling movie?

Me: No, I haven't.

Him: Okay, well, there's this one part when Ryan Gosling just snaps and kills this guy in an elevator. But he doesn't just kill him–he, like, snaps his neck and then smashes his face in. Anyway, this kid came through tonight–scrawny, little, peach fuzz, not even a beard at all!

Me: Oh, that's bad.

Him: Thought he knew everything. He was trying to tell me how to use the cash register and I was just like I WORK HERE. I just wanted to pull him through the window and smash his face Ryan Gosling style.

Me: *laughs*

Him: I hate teenagers.

Me: Well, luckily I turned twenty a few weeks ago, so I'm no longer an annoying teenager.

Him: Yes! I like you now!

This is funny. He seems like a great guy but he'd hate me because I'm a teenager. Forever 17. (That's right, I'm creating a clothing store to rival Forever 21 called Forever 17. Totally a fact. 100% truth.)

Love ya, Maggie.

I am sometimes ashamed to be a teenager. That reminds me of that conversation where we realized that I'm going to be the youngin' in Seattle. A wee little lass...

Teenagers get a bad rep for reasons beyond their control, though. A lot of our society's dislike for teens comes from our own presumptions about them. We treat them like lairs and like they're always up to no good, so how else should we expect them to behave? It's kind of sad, really.

But, that conversation is still quite funny. :)
