Why do I patronise Starbux?
I guess it’s convenience. I’m not very good at finding independent coffee shops. Also Starbux opens sometimes till midnight and most independent shops seem to shut earlier.
Starbux is kind of corporate. I remember when they arrived in my northern city around 1995. My drink of choice was a mocha. I never bought food in Starbux (too expensive).
I think in the 90s we thought we were in an episode of friends. Maybe it was more like Seinfeld.
I guess I go to Starbux because I am lazy but also that’s what the world offers me. The U.K. is a bargain basement of pound shops and supermarkets. A Greggs economy.
I dunno. Do I care?
