CindyH: Starbucks Evil Plot

So, last month I went through the Starbucks drive-through and ordered my regular tall coffee with cream. When I got to the window the barista handed me a card that entitled me to a FREE cup of coffee every Wednesday until May 26. They’re promoting their new Pikes Place blend. Well. I’m not going to turn down free coffee, so every week I’ve been getting my free cup and I only just realized it’s a horribly insidious plot. I’m addicted. My car is programed to head to Starbucks each Wednesday morning and afternoon. I’m not sure I can stop, now. What will I do when I have to start PAYING for my coffee? Probably have to sell the house or something. So laugh if you want about naked mermaids, but these Starbucks folks are just plain evil/CindyH.
