This "Thought for the Day" is courtesy of my friend Larry Anderson who called to tell me that he had seen me dropping off stuff at the cleaners. I somehow missed his wave. I told him that I started to go through the Starbucks drive-thru right next door to the cleaners but declined because the line was too long.
The $4.00 doesn't bother me as much as sitting in that long line. In fact, I wouldn't even miss the $4.00 because I have a Starbucks card that I just keep reloading so it doesn't really feel like I'm spending money when I indulge in a Skinny Vanilla Latte or lately a Mocha Light Frappuccino.
So that led Larry to wonder how many sales Starbucks, or anyone for that matter, loses because of long lines. Hmmmmm….
