Starbuck's term for "small" by default. While Short is supposed to be their "small" it's doesn't appear on the menu for hot drinks.
Customer: Wait...I ordered small, hot latte. It's supposed to be 8 oz. Why am I being charged for the "Tall" size?
Barista: Oh, you wanted a "Short". You didn't say "Short". Do you want a "Short" then, hmmmmm?
Customer: Well...uhhh...yeah...of course.
Barista: Well you should've just said so in the 1st place.
Customer(seething): You just lost your tip.
