Yesterday I visited the Starbucks in Times Square as I had some time to kill before a job interview and it's the only place to hang out. First thing I saw when I walked in was a sign advertising the holiday drinks. Here's how it went down:

Me (to the guy behind the counter): Peppermint Mocha or Gingerbread Latte?

Him: Well, it kinda depends what you like and..

Me: Say I've got a gun to your head.

Him: Well, I'm kind of a gingerbread man myself. (yeah, he really said that)

So I got the gingerbread latte. Which, according to Bill Maher, makes me an asshole.

But the real reason I'm a dick is that I paid over $4 dollars for a coffee. I can pay that for a Brooklyn Lager at my favorite Lower East Side bar.

It was a good drink. However, if a coffee drink is going to cost 4 bucks, it should come with a shot of something. Like dignity.

(PS - For those in NY, the bar in question is Max Fisch. Go there! But never on a weekend night)

(PPS - for those not in NY, Starbucks is very popular here as it's one of the very few places to get a decent cup o' joe in this town)
