I've always hated Starbucks. Their coffee sucks and it's way overpriced. I live in New York; why would I pay four bucks for a large coffee (oh, excuse me... I meant "venti"), when I can go to the corner bodega and get a cup for 75 cents?! And for those three quarters, they'll even put my milk and sugar in it for me! None of this do-it-yourself bullshit where you have to take the lid off and open sugar packets and stirrers. So you'd never catch me in Starbucks... until now. Until I discovered their Green Tea Lemonade!
Down in Key West, the house we were staying at didn't have high-speed internet, but the Starbucks right down the street had a wireless connection. So I had to suck it up and head down there to check my e-mail and surf the net. But I felt guilty just sitting there without ordering something, and that guilt forced me to spend some money to use the evill empire's bandwith. No way in hell I was drinking their coffee though, so I looked for something else on the menu. And there it was... a nice, refreshing, ice-cold lemonade with green tea mixed in. The perfect summer beverage! And now I'm addicted!
Damn you, Starbucks! You couldn't get me with your coffee, but you still found a way to take my money!
