I drink black coffee and I like it.
As long as it’s good coffee.
Even if it’s just pretty decent coffee.
But here’s the thing.
(We all have our faults, do we not?)
I don’t crave chocolate,
I don’t smoke,
I don’t go out and buy myself new things very often…
I do like me some latte.
Like, not just espresso and steamed milk.
I like the really fancy frou frou drinks.
The drinks that you can practically have for a meal.
That is my major fault.
(Although I’m not apologizing, mind you.)
Like I said. We all have to have a small vice.
This is mine.
Another thing that bothers me is when people bash Starbucks.
If you refuse to support them based on an issue of affiliation or what have you,
That is up to you.
But don’t get down on them just because they are successful.
I have worked for many coffee shops in my day,
And while working for Starbucks,
I was treated with the utmost respect
And had good, affordable benefits and happy co-workers.
Happy employees is a really good sign.
And I think it’s poppycock when people refuse to go there because it’s a chain.
They’re obviously huge for a reason.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about supporting local businesses,
And with the number of lattes I go through in a month,
I have plenty of chances to go hither and thither with my coffee money
And support the little guy and the big guy alike.
But let’s be real here.
If I’m right by Starbucks and I want my ‘coffee’,
I’m going to get it there.
Plus they have a drive-thru.
If the babychild is sleeping in the back, or even just content in his car seat,
I will drive through so I don’t have to get him out and make him mad.
Honestly, if more of the locally owned coffeehouses would add a drive-thru
I would frequent them even more.
Here’s a snotty little picture I made to express my feelings.
Now if you’d really just like something to get upset about,
Focus your anger on the fact that people often say
That. Is unforgivable.
-peace and love-
p.s. If you actually read all that, you should get an award.
