Clairvoyance ??

At Starbucks this morning, I was waiting in line, behind the person who was placing his order. The coffee shop was surprisingly un-busy for that time of morning. While the counter person was finishing with the customer in front of me, the barista called out, "Andrea, what can I get you this morning ?"

Huh ? How did she know my name, I wondered ? I go to this Starbucks once a week at most, and have never given them my name. My order is always a tall coffee black, dispensed by the cashier. No need to give my name and wait for my drink to be created.

Then I looked at my shirt.

I'm wearing my Community Emergency Response Team Instructor polo in preparation for tonight's class.

With my name embroidered on the front.

D'oh !
