ajgeek: /highly prejudiced against offshore programmers
Tobin_Lam: Back in college, someone asked me to answer a few questions and I figured I had the time for it. It was at that time that I realized how much I was spending and that I really needed to cut back. It didn't help that the Starbucks was in the parking garage next door to my dorm. One thing that had always bugged me about Starbucks jokes was the $5 coffee joke. Regular coffee is still pretty cheap and the other drinks weren't even close, except it is slowly becoming closer to the truth. My wife told me about getting a hazelnut latte and it hit her that $4.50 was a lot to pay for it. When did a simple drink like that get so expensive? I remember when something like that cost $3. What really pisses me off is all the local coffee places are almost as expensive. Apparently, they've been undercharging and Starbucks showed that the market will bear much higher prices.
