An Open Letter To This Coffee Shop Patron
by Amy Lindorff
Dear Coffee Shop Patron,
So your big idea of the morning was to treat your self to a “fresh squeezed orange juice with lots of ice?” Are you aware that for the same price (I’m guessing $4) you can get an entire bottle of orange juice at Ralph’s and add as much ice as you want? Or you could buy a ton of oranges and squeeze them yourself. If you’re requesting all that ice there is going to be about a tablespoon of actual orange juice involved. Not a huge bang for your buck.
But do whatever you want. I’m sure the baristas enjoy a change of pace from all the no-fat-vanilla-lattes people are demanding today.
