In an impossibly rediculous line at Starbucks at 8:55 this morning,
while enjoying all sorts of line cutters, passive aggressive un-
caffeinated behavior, screaming baristas, and jolly Christmas music,

and Starbucks would probably pay for this kind of info.
And while we're at pipe dreaming, why don't we throw MacDonalds in
the mix too. Although I have sworn off MacDonalds because of their
line fiascos, I would gladly submit myself once again if I knew I were
contributing to the psychological analysis of line offenders.
