Dear Ladies at Satrbucks who think the gift cards are just so lovely,

The line is for purchasing, dispensing and receiving of caffeine related products. This is priority number one. It’s not for holding up the line to talk with each other about how cute the Starbucks cards are and it’s not for telling 20 minute long stories to the cashier about how your daughters off at college will “get a real kick” out of “one of these darling little things.”


The rest of us in line need our coffee. We need it now.

Thank you.

    Welcome to Miami, Sean. You’re presuming that said ladies care that you exist. Probably not the case.

    Um, Sean, Cuban coffee, my friend! What are you doing at Starbucks anyway? Here’s how it goes: walk up to the window, order, drink, chat with live humans or talk on the cellphone, pay a dollar, then go find wireless and get down to business. Maybe take a colada with you. If so, be sure to offer some to total strangers. That’s Miami-style.

    In Orlando a few weeks ago a woman in front of me purchased 60 bags of coffee plus some other ‘gifts’. Her total was over $800.00.
