Observations while standing in line at Starbucks

For Christmas, Jay got me a Starbucks card. Its not a credit card, but rather has a certain $ amount on it and it can be refilled online when the total gets low.

I did a search and found out that there is a Starbucks about two blocks from my work. Score.

I don't go there everyday. That would be silly. I mean, what sort of person would go to Starbucks every single day? Instead, I limit myself to once a week........sometimes twice if its a special occasion. Never three times a week. Hardly ever.....

So, while I'm standing in line at Starbucks waiting for my morning Cinnamon de leche latte, I've had time to make a few observations.

#1 About 80% of the customers in Starbucks wear black
#2 The same police man comes in every morning that I'm there. He drives a motorcycle. I'm not sure how he drives and drinks at the same time.
#3 Hardly anybody just orders coffee.
#4 Lots of people order triple shots of expresso with their beverages. Wow.
#5 Nobody brings their kids to Starbucks
#6 People who work at Starbucks can multi-task.
#7 One day they ran out of those little cardboard jackets and people were kinda lost.
#8 It just looks cool to be walking out of Starbucks carrying your beverage.
#9 mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
