Interesting - from your last response, it appears that you are agreeing with everything we have been saying all along. Who said ordering off of the menu makes one cooler? Certainly not me.
Oh, if you're referring to the venti, grande thing - my point was missed -- I was trying to say that i am so not a 'pretentious coffee snob' (as you insinuated) that I can't even remember what size is what without looking at the menu, so I usually say "large" or "small."
You said that when you want something prepared differently, you ask -- well, that's what we have been saying all along, and that the the whole point behind this post.
