I am sitting at a Starbucks in New York City. I am here for a quick trip to see my daughter, and I’m waking up after a late night (for me – midnight). I waited in line (much longer than in Milwaukee), ordered a “tall coffee.” Nothing complicated. I guess that was the point – it wasn’t complicated. The young woman behind the counter just looked at me . . . and looked at me . . . and looked at me. Then it hit me. I said, “I guess you don’t get many orders like that, do you?” I laughed. She laughed and said, “Yeah, I was just waiting for you to finish your order!”
As I waited for my coffee, I listened to the orders being taken, although I already knew I was different: “grande vanilla latte, extra whip, 2 pumps . . . . ” You may want to check out their website (www.starbucks.com) to find out what’s in YOUR drink. It may surprise you. But, it is always a choice, so look at the information and make a reasonable decision FOR YOU.
