I'm officially that person...

Yesterday after school there was a teacher's union rally at Fremont High School. If you recall, yesterday afternoon it was raining quite steadily. So, my friend Kim and I decided that a stop at Starbucks on the way there to get a warm beverage was in order. I haven't been to Starbucks since...I don't actually know. Maybe November? My grande non-fat caramel macchiato was delicious, but my jaw dropped when I saw the price: $3.95! Are you kidding me?

Part of me hates that I am that lady ranting about how ridiculous it is to pay $3.95 for coffee. But, I also can't believe that there are people who stop at Starbucks every day! I used to go about once a week or so, and even that seems like a bad call. I even have a few friends who complain about their financial state and how they're broke who are totally addicted to Starbucks...lay off the coffee people.

Unless it's raining and you have to go to a rally. Then, by all means, treat yourself. :)


  1. Ha, I think the same thing when I get a vanilla latte (hardly ever anymore): $4 for some coffee, milk, and vanilla syrup? Is the cup gold plated or something? lol

  2. i used my delta sky miles to buy a coffee maker for my apt & have saved countless dollars! =) also, if i must re-caf out and about, cheap 7-11 coffee does the trick. drip coffee with loads of flavored creamer & i can imagine it's a white mocha vanilla latte fluffy cup. =)

  3. you think that is expensive, try smoking... wait don't do that.

    Nice protest pic, you are a true American. :)
