Starbucks - wait

My friend, Carmi, (http://carmicimicata.blogspot.com) has issues about the wait for orders at Starbucks. It's especially long when the high school kids are done for the day and come for a drink and monopolize all the tables for hours on end. This is my pet peeve. The same thing happens at Tim Hortons. In addition, business types have meetings and even interview for jobs. One Tim Horton's in the west end of the city has banned the high school kids from sitting and it turns out that this move is actually legal. Wish this move was city wide. And Carmi, a caramel macchiato takes the same time as a latte. Wouldn't you know that the highest calorie drink is now my favourite.

The Starbucks in my neighborhood started laying down the law. I was in there once with a so-called friend and I complained that not only were the sschoolkids creating chaos they had BROUGHT THEIR OWN drinks and not buying in starbucks. The so-called friend argued with me that they had a right to blah-blah-blah and got angry with me. And that was the end of that so-called friendship!
