i just threw away 8 bucks.

and i'm hella pissed about it.

see, i came in really early to work today due to circumstances of my life and the inane scheduling of the LIRR trains. so to kill an hour and inject caffeine (which i normally don't do...) i figured i'd sacrifice my better judgment and head on in to Starfucks.

also against my better judgment, i decided to get a coffee derivative. usually i forgo all such nonsense in favour of the blended lemonade with raspberry (which is the only Starfucks thing i'm currently not cranky about), but i figured, of all mornings, today was a mocha frapp morning.

i had memories of high school. when they used to be good.
or when i was stupid enough to think so.

for real. do they burn everything? even cold stuff? i don't get it. I JUST THREW OUT a frapp. that's right. i couldn't even swallow it. i tried. i had a moral dilemma past FOUR trash cans. it was so expensive to throw out. but i could not. could not drink it. strike two?

those fruit platter bullshits. strawberry kiwi mango. the kiwi was weird, the strawberries were glazed with i have no fucking idea what, and the mango wasn't even ripe (read: edible). needless to say, didn't eat that either, and threw it out. oh, and the barista was a bitch and had her own deal going on.

I AM CRANKY ABOUT MY MORNING EXPERIENCE.
is it too much to ask for some sensible caffeine?? clearly.
at least i'm not the only one. the sad thing? they gave me a coupon for a $2 cold drink provided i use it this afternoon. i may do it. just so i can get this godawful taste out of my mouth. how in the hell this came out of Seattle and into the rest of the world, i will never know.

i've thrown away so many white choc mochas that i just put the actual cash in the garbage now. :(

but i still keep going back. when they do it right, i love it.

ad kid; i so know how you feel. white mochas are the only starbucks beverage i drink, and when they are un-drinkable, i feel more than a little sad inside.

to riot; i recommend you check out and enjoy "Starbucks Sucks" by Sewing With Nancy (RIP). This song features such classic and true lines like; "tastes like piss and costs big bucks / fuck you starbucks, you suck."

@ am&a -- oh man, i used to listen to SwN back in high school. way to send me nostalgia. i haven't thought of them in YEARS!

@ adkid -- ugh i know. i refuse any further coffee or food products, but they've yet to fuck up a blended lemonade for me. ..yet.
