I like to think of myself as, the kind of guy you think about when you watch the outdoor channel. You know the type...The blue collar guy. The one other men, who wear suits to work snicker at. Forcing me to return the favor by making fun of their "pink" power ties while rolling up my sleeves.

Having said that, I am having a hard time with this right now. I feel that Starbucks is taking some of my manhood away evertime I go to the counter and say, "Venti, Carmel Frappicino with carmel drizzle in the cup with no whip." AHHHHAAHHH, I hate it!

I stare at the floor as if I am a criminal trying to avoid being identified while committing a crime.

I swear that Starbucks is the DEVIL!








Wait....You going to Starbucks?

I'll come with ya, I need to pick me up a Venti Carmel Frappicino with carmel drizzle in the cup with no whip.....Damn-it! I fell victim again, Son-of-bitch.

Tooo easy to fix. Order a triple Espresso and then order your drink for the "wife in the car". You can then walk out with your head up and still have your girly drink. LMAO

I hate that Venti crap. Its an effin large!!! I go to Seattle's Best, they got it right. Why do they call it a tall? Because they don't want to call it a small coffee, that's why. What's so wrong with a small coffee? Or a large one for that matter.

I call it a large, not a Venti, that's how I cope.

Or you could man up and go to a Tim Horton's or even a Dunkin Donuts, and order a REAL cup of coffee, and leave all that girly flavored crap behind. Heck even 7-11's have all that testosterone stealing flavorings, but you grab your own damn cup, make it yourself, and pay for it, you don't even have to say a word to the cashier if you don't want to. None of that buttsecks "vente" lisping crap....Just real coffee.

You brew your own beer but not your own coffee?

You know, they're owned by Starbucks.

They just took over for the Burger King's Coffee in NJ.

"I would like a medium coffee."
"One Grande coffee"
"No, no, I would like a medium"
"But....."
They usually give up and I smile.
