Grande Drip

NOON -- Why is there always someone in line at Starbuck's that has to make the goofy "Man, I'm just useless until I get my morning coffee -- ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!" remark OUT LOUD every damn morning?

The people who make these stupid jokes have two things in common: (1) They always appear to be more awake than the rest of us addicts and (2) They always end up ordering some 20-ounce girly drink with nothing but sugar, milk, whipped cream, and sprinkles.

Sprinkles! For crying out loud. You're wearing a $5,000 suit! Have some dignity!

Can we please stop serving the girly-drink-out-loud-joker people? Isn't that what those "we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone" signs are all about?

re: Grande Drip out of political correctness we need to call it "mezzo", 媒介, milieu, or Mittel. But we should never call it by the latin or English roots....

re: Grande Drip Oh, brookseven, that's cold...

For the record, I drink my coffee strong and black, the only way it should really be drunk.

And I when I order I ask for a "medium coffee," not of this "grande" nonsense for me.

re: Grande Drip Very well, then. Give me two 媒介 coffees. No sugar. No cream. No lid.
