The only reason that people become greedy like this is because the people who came before them taught them to be greedy - they're conditioned by a society that rewards such savagely self-serving behavior. It's your society too, so stop being so self-righteous about it.

ReapTheChaos: How the hell could the person in front of them have paid BEFORE they even ordered?


I usually just leave an extra $5 and tell the counter person to apply it to the next order and if they're just going to pocket it, to wait until I get out the door. If the person behind me orders a coffee drink that costs more than $5, they just get a discounted coffee, not a free one.

A few years ago I went to Outback with a group of friends while I was broke and ordered the cheapest thing on the menu (cup of soup, if I remember correctly). Then, it took so long for them to get the food out to us, the manager came over and said that our entire bill was on the house.

I then wished that I had ordered some real food instead of just a cup of soup, but I didn't write to a newspaper to complain about it.

Ok, just to clear up this...it is easily possible to pay for someone behind you. You just over-pay a lot and say "I got the person behind me, too". If it happens at mcdonalds, I'm sure it happens elsewhere.

Please. No straight man is ordering a triple mocha dark chocolate ugg boot raspberry white iPhone 5 double caramel infinity sign frappe (or whatever the hell it was).

Assuming it's real, which I find highly unlikely, the guy ahead had ~$2 in change and left it for her. If she'd ordered a fancier drink, it would have only been ~$2 off instead of fully paid for. (The leftover dime or whatever probably went straight to the tip jar.) There's no possible way that he could have left a tab open, Starbucks POS systems just don't work that way.

This "Crabby" fella did refer to the writer as female once or twice, although that could have been a snide way of calling a man a pussy, as well.

But seriously, who under 40 ever describes any young woman as "perky"? That's a dead giveaway of at least middle-aged right there. (I'd say middle age male, but you never know.) Boomers projecting their problems onto the youth, where have I seen that before?

I'm probably spending too much mental effort on this crap, but if you carefully read both letters, they're obviously written by the same person. Even Prudie is better than this: at least her fakes are submitted by real trolls.

I have never understood paying it forward at Starbucks the people that shop with them are either

Every once and awhile I'll leave a pre-paid card with the cashier with instructions to use it till it runs out for buying people coffee.

jbc: If she's broke, what in the hell is she doing in Starbucks in the first place?


You two have covered everything I wanted to say.

I never really understood going to Starbuck's anyway.  I have a decent coffee making machine in my kitchen.  It takes less than a minute to set it up to make coffee.  It has a timer on it so all I have to do is walk to my kitchen and pour hot coffee when I wake up.  Even when I just had my old Mr. Coffee I would just turn it on and wait a few minutes and then pour a cup.

In either case, I didn't even have to leave the house to do that.  Why the hell does anyone want to go stand in line or sit in a drive-thru lane at farking Starbuck's just to have an overpriced cup of coffee?

I've never actually figured out how much it costs me to brew a whole farking pot of coffee at home because it's so cheap, but I bet the whole pot of coffee I make costs less than a single cup at Starfarks.

Two things, if you are almost broke two days before payday, you do not go to Starbucks. And secondly, stop being such a biatch and be grateful.

I sometimes would do this if the guy behind me is uniform or something like that, but if guys reacts like this, I'd have to think twice next time.

Biatching about obnoxious coffee orders at Starbucks? Truly, it's the cutting edge of humor. I wonder what the author thinks about airline food?

It's a trade-off. If they tell you in advance that they are buying, you can order whatever the hell you want, and they are obligated to pay. BUT...they get to give you a swift kick to the balls (or a tit-punch). OR...you get the drink paid for, with no advance notice, but you remain coont-punt free. Your choice.
