Reason # 37 Why I Need To Stop Buying Breakfast At Starbucks

It's not that Starbucks is a bad company, or even that it's overpriced. It makes great coffee and great food for a reasonable price and most of the time, I love it.

But. Still. I spent something like 18 dollars on food today and the DAY IS ONLY HALF OVER. And this still happened:

Yes, that's a trashed breakfast sandwich. I branched out from my normal artisan Bacon/Gouda/Parmesan Egg love and got a classic sausage. It was terrible and I couldn't finish it. But I would have never been in this situation had I taken the time to MAKE my breakfast.

It's an important balance: in general, I am all about food on the go. This is one of the many reasons to live in a city--there's food everywhere, and they know you're in a hurry and they serve it to you quickly. But sometimes you get failures, on the same day that you forget to bring your lunch to work, and you end up paying enough money for a damn manicure to be mediocrely fed for the day, and you end up cursing the clouds and wishing you had just cooked.

You know, hypothetically speaking.

Worse than the trashed sandwich: trashed the trash!

Alex, I dug it out, rinsed it out, and recycled it. HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY.
