I was in Starbucks the other day (middle class evidence #1) and I was waiting for my coffee alonside a young woman who was clearly irked. She told me she’d been waiting more than five minutes for a latte and several other customers who had arrived earlier had already received their caffeine fix for the day.
These people are so irritating. Like the staff of Disneyworld they’re all smiles when you get to the counter, overly joyous and nice. SO SMUG AND PLEASED WITH THEMSELVES. Why? It’s not like they’re serving me a cure for cancer or a winning lottery ticket. I’m buying a coffee, stop smiling at me! I hate fake American nice.
