Every time I got to a star bucks- be it at my local strip mall or at the Maryland House on I95 I feel like I speak "ordinary" . I don't order "tall venti, skim, mocha, espresso 2 shot splenda.. what ever". I just say " a regular coffee small please", I can swear that I get smile every time from the StarBucks person.
My question is ?
What do you order?
Do you know of any websites that have chronicled "StarBucks Speak" or "drink codes"
Please comment so we ordinary mortals can be enlightened.
Some great people shared their insights by commenting here. Just wanted to post useful info from Twitter too.

@AlbertMaruggi in New York City if you go into any place and ask for regular coffee, you get two sugars two creams
@dacort "tall drip, with room" ( response to my "regular coffee small ( leave room for cream please) ")
