So Should We Reschedule Those Last Few Shifts?

I wonder if this fella considers Joey a musical and/or spiritual influence.

According to Anesti Danelis’ website, he’s a musical and sketch comedian, an actor, and a writer. There was a time when he might’ve tacked the words “and a Starbucks barista” to that description, but that time was before he carried his guitar into the Toronto Starbucks where he worked and sang a song that could very well be called “Fuck This, I Quit.

Given that Danelis is a comedy performer whose YouTube channel has roughly two dozen other songs and sketches, you’d wonder whether this was just another performance, but in an interview with People, he insists that nope, he was just an unhappy barista who decided to change his life.

He said that he wrote the song while he was riding his bike after a particularly shit day on the job, but it took him about a month to pull his nerves together and sing it in the store.

Of course it was filmed. He made sure to have a few friends there ahead of time so that it wouldn’t be lost to history.

Hopefully whatever he’s got going on now is treating him better than Starbucks did. Seems like a talented guy.

Semi-related: Anybody else remember this little number?

Starbucks sucks!

Tastes like piss and costs big bucks,
I hate Starbucks, Starbucks sucks.
Tastes like piss and costs big bucks,
I hate Starbucks, Starubucks sucks.

I don’t need your fancy cup!
My Tim Horton’s fills me up.
I don’t need your filthy cup!
Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!

Just one sip and you will chuck,
Fuck you, Starbucks. You suck.
Just one sip and you will chuck,
Fuck you, Starbucks. You suck.
Fuck you, Starbucks. You suck.
Fuck you, Starbucks. You suck

I’ll always love the toilet flush at the end.
