small, medium, large



not sure how to begin this rant... but here it goes...

i do not hate starbucks. it is convenient (located on almost every corner of nyc) and i do like the iced grande soy chai latte from time to time (although that phrase is almost impossible for me to say). but my experience this morning at a small, independently owned coffee shop made my skin crawl! and makes me want to never to go to a starbucks, because they are making our sad society sadder.

so, this is what happened...

i was just finishing paying for my iced coffee when the next customer was asked what he would like. the guy says, yeah, i want a Venti macchiato. the shop worker very kindly said, WE HAVE SMALL AND LARGE.

i know we call some things by their corporate names (kleenex instead of tissue, xerox instead of copies) but the sizes of coffee cups should not change. especially if they are as arbitrary as tall, grande and venti.
