Starbucks Wisdom

I walk into a Starbucks today and the barista, that’s what they call themselves, sees that I’m wearing a Berkley T-shirt. He asks if I was currently a student there, I said, “No–” and told him that I graduated “…a long time ago.”

The barista responds, “Yeah, you look old…err… wise.”

“Old?” I say.

“No wiser.”

“You mean old,” I reply.

“Older people are wiser,” he says.

What a dork.
