My First Write-up Turned Into a “W”

I work at Starbucks.


I’m usually the opening shift, so I wake up at 4 AM  to serve thousands of mostly privileged coffee leeches almost every day AND I DO IT WELL. Not to toot my own horn💁🏾, Starbucks Corporation I’m sure has millions of valued employees, my coworkers are amazing I must say; but I’m mostly saying this to point out that I am a hard worker. An OVER ACHIEVER by many standards.  I can blame my over achieving on my Type A personality but I’d be lying..I like to be one of the absolute best at EVERY place that I work because I LOVE MONEY💰💸💵💴💶💷. I’m MADLY in love with it. Because money is access, and access is more money and infinite creation blahddy blah blah blah.

Moving on…I LOVE MONEY. So, when I woke up at 3:15am one Monday morning, sick as a dog and realized that I wouldn’t be able to make it into work I was heartbroken: “Yeah, this isn’t going to happen”, I told myself. I typically open with my manager, and with an extremely sick brain decided that since it was 3:15 in the morning I should probably shoot her a text letting her know that I wouldn’t be able to make it in.
