It is unbelievable to me that people will pay almost $4 for a cup of coffee. What could possibly be so good that a person would stand in line for 10 minutes and then willingly hand over $4 (AND sometimes a tip)? Yet more often than I'd like to admit, I find myself in line at Starbucks. I'm always a little shell shocked when the cashier tells me how much the Grande, Non-Fat, Sugar-Free Vanilla latte I ordered costs. I mean, come on...there's no fat and no sugar...what could be in there that would warrant $3.92?? And, to top it off, they don't even offer any sort of a "Frequent Drinker" card. You know, like a buy 10 get one free sort of thing. Here's the part that really gets to me though...Even knowing all this, I still LOVE Starbucks. It's like a relationship that I know I need to end, but for some reason, I just can't say good-bye and walk away. Don't pretend you don't know exactly what I'm talking about. I guess we all have our burdens to bear and being caught up in a love affair with Starbucks is mine.
I know what you're thinking..."What happened to Ice, Ice Baby - Part 2?" Don't worry, it's on the way.
