Have you not had apple pie either?

The scene: Friday night. House and I-66 are 1-2 in line at Starbucks. Behind them is a random girl. Around-20ish female barista is across the counter. House is up.
House: [to I-66] "I think I want the egg nog latte." [to Barista] "Is the egg nog latte sweet?"
I-66: [as if he's some sort of CoffeeNazi] "No!"
Barista: "I don't know. Is egg nog sweet? I've never had it."
I-66: "Wait, what?"
Barista: [to other barista] "Is the egg nog latte sweet?" (answer not heard because...)
I-66: "That's unamerican or something, isn't it?" [looks to Girl for confirmation]
Girl: [nods] "Shel-tered."
House orders the egg nog latte. I-66 is up, and now he feels like messing with the barista.
I-66: "I'll have a grande white mocha please."
Barista: [to other barista] "Can I call?"
Barista 2: "Go ahead."
Barista: "Grande white mocha."
I-66: [speaking low as if he doesn't want the other barista to hear] "Does she ever say no?"
Barista: [confused and somewhat taken aback] "Uhh... what?"
I-66: [a little louder] "Does she ever say no?"
Barista: [realizing what he's asking] "Oh! No, but I do sometimes. If we're busy and I'm not ready, sometimes I'll just tell hem 'No.'"
I-66: "Oh. What about when they want to put in coffee orders?"
[Barista looks utterly confused]
I-66: "Nevermind." [walks over to the 2nd counter to wait for his coffee]
House: "What are you doing?"
I-66: "Just being an ass."

When they say "Can I call?" Insted of saying no, the barista at the bar will say "write" and the barista at the register writes the order on the cup. Your barista was pretty slow, but things aren't quite what they used to be when I worked at the Bucks.

I can't see you having the patience to deal with coffee patrons on a regular basis.

I think you need a * on [realizing what he's asking], because no she didn't.

Yeah, I should have said she realized what I wanted her to realize.

I don't actually *like* eggnog, although I've never had the kind with alcohol. But I'm totally a Jew so that's ok. Right?

Sweet: And I had such high hopes for you...

AJ: I was surprised that she hadn't had it. Not liking it is not a crime. However, despite the fact that it often is associated with Christmas, there is no official holiday affiliation for the drink (see imbibation on Thanksgiving and New Years).

This is all really confusing to me. I grew up in MA, where there is a Dunkin' Donuts on every corner, and when you order a coffee "regular", it already comes with cream and sugar in it.

All this foofy Starbucks talk has got me a little confused.

So, this one time? My eggnog latte totally turned solid on me. It was fine at first, and then I let it sit for about 15 minutes, and when I tried to drink this, all sorts of semi-solid curdles slid down to meet my mouth.

After I finished gagging, I complained online to Starbucks and they gave me two free drink coupons. But you know I didn't use them for eggnog lattes. Eggnog lattes are dead to me.

Mmmm...I heart eggnog. Of course I heart anything that's a zillion calories and that you can add alcohol too so....
