Do Starbuck's Baristas measure up?

Christine and I drove through a Seattle Starbucks today. I happened to have a few gift cards that I’ve been whittling away at, and when my first one came up a dollar and four pennies short, I offered up my second. It covered the bill with a penny to spare.

“Perfect!” I said.

“No,” said our cute barista. “You’re a penny short of perfect.”

“Pretty close, though.” I said.

“You’re closer than my boyfriend. He’s a half-inch short of perfect.”

And with that witty banter, and drinks in hand, we drove away. I’m sure, of course, she was thinking of his height.
