I totally Gleeked out while working at Starbucks this weekend.
Saturdays tend to be bustling with tourists with their cameras strapped around their necks, struggling to make a drink order. Last Saturday was no exception. Per usual, we were understaffed and I was overworked.
Sometime in the early evening, I glanced down the line to see two tall hipster-looking men. Something about their appearance seemed out of place. Why were they in Times Square? As they got closer, I felt I recognized one of them.
One of them order a hot chocolate, the other a mocha. I was suspicious when one replied his name was Chord after my manager asked.
We exchanged a few words about his order but it wasn’t until a teenage girl asked the blond if he was on Glee. I made the connection and began to ignore the customers following him. It’s Sam from Glee! His name is Chord!?
I asked him why he was in town and he said he was visiting Lea who was filming something. He included that he would return in a few weeks to shoot the season finale of Glee.
It would have been totally unprofessional to ask for a picture and too fan girl, but the it was the highlight of my work experience this weekend. Believe me, I need something like that working there.
Fun fact: I saw Jane Lynch at a beer garden in the East Village in June. Working on my Glee celebrity sighting checklist.
Ed note: He ordered a Venti caramel mocha, per my suggestion. He said he wanted the caffeine.
