Of course. That's like "I'll have the triple baconator, extra bacon, large fry, and a DIET coke."

Surely, you're not suggesting that there is something wrong with bacon....

You mean she's confused about the dietary choices she should be making here in America? I mean, the path to dietary health is SO CLEAR AND WELL DEFINED. There's hardly any conflicting information anywhere.

Re: seen at starbucks just a second ago

There is a starbucks in Vegas right across from where I used to work. Nothing but cops, lawyers, secretaries, and doctors would go to it. I can't put into words how *****y secretaries get when their orders aren't correct. Its a good thing that there are cops there, or else I would rage hardcore on some of them. There is nothing like standing in line for 15 mins while the C U Next Tuesday in front of me yells at the barista for being charged for soy in her drink.

Funny as! Cops and coffee - we go together! I'm too English to complain about anything though - they could serve me totally the wrong thing and I'd just smile and pretend they got it right! Its the English way!! I find it so embarrassing if I'm with someone who causes a fuss!
Still, I LOVE the secretary look! Oh yeah - pencil skirts!!!! Reason enough to go into Starbucks I reckon!

Too funny. I see where you're coming from. I'm definitely having to hold back my American 'particularness' when out and about here in Scotland.

Re: seen at starbucks just a second ago

I worked at a coffee shop almost two years. We mostly served regulars, but occasionally we would get a starbucks/"globo coffee shop" crossover. Whenever anyone who we didn't recognise we would ask if they actually wanted a cappuccino or if they actually knew what one was. We got tired of wasting espresso.

What else would it be? I didn't really get into coffee before moving to Norway.
