I get it now.

This morning as I was sitting on the bus I had convinced myself that I probably needed to get an iced coffee from Starbucks. I was totally ready for it. But then when it came time to get off the buss I was annoyed to discover that they had moved the bus stop again! Now it is across the intersection from where it used to be. This meant that if I were to go get a coffee, I would have had to cross the street. TWICE.

You see, crossing the street would have meant that I would have been on the wrong side of the street, and would have had to cross the street again to get to work. That just seemed like way to much of a hassle, so I didn't get coffee. Suddenly that ridiculous two Starbucks stores in the same intersection at Robson and Thurlow seemed to make perfect sense.

OF COURSE! One should never have to cross the street for coffee! That's bullshit.

Starbucks comes from a completely different Universe, I mean how else can you explain how they manage to get their coffee SO damn hot? The laws of physics mean that water heated above 100 degrees turns to steam, but not at Starbucks. It's about 400 degrees.

Mmmmm.... Today would have been a good day for an iced coffee. But I would have has to cross the street and walk a block... So I went without as well.
