Love This Stuff

Article in today's StarTribune (actually a reprint from NYT) about guerrilla tactics - sort of a passive agressive primer:

When Seth Shepsle goes to Starbucks, he orders a "medium" because "grande" -- as the coffee company calls the size, the one between big and small -- annoys him.

Meg Daniel presses zero whenever she hears a computerized operator on the telephone so that she can talk to a real person. "Just because they want a computer to handle me doesn't mean I have to play along," she said.

Funny...I order a 'large' or 'medium' upon going into Starbucks, too. However, the folks behind the counter (almost) always translate that into their mumbo-jumbo speak.

...hmm, that gets me thinking. Now would be a pretty good time for a large coffee...

Yeah, those coffee shops pretty much hate it when Chris comes...they lose money on him since he doesn't order the fru-fru drinks....EVER...he orders a LARGE house coffee and is offended when they ask if they should leave room for cream! How dare they think of such a thing!!!
