While waiting for the ordered items, I munched on the coin choco and played with the statement table.
In this branch, not all tables are like this. I started with the basic question and correlated the words eventually.
The ‘I’m fine’ or something similar was nowhere.
Okay. Maybe, this must be the situation:
If you’re confused, you’d probably say:
If that’s the case, you need to:
The main reason for the confusion is you’re torn.
But let’s not dwell on that.
You’ve got two basic options: to remain confused or sort out your thoughts and feelings and decide.
But how soon? That, only you would know.
Finally, my items came. Here’s the limited edition of mug. I’ve been checking this whenever I’d have the chance. This has been out of stock for quite a time.
And time proves that I still like java chip.
While sipping the frap, this one made me uncomfortable. Whenever I hear of napkin, I associate it with one particular feminine stuff.
But if you’ll closely look at its meaning, it says:
1. A piece of cloth or absorbent paper used at table to protect the clothes or wipe the lips and fingers.
2. A cloth or towel.
3. A sanitary napkin.
4. Chiefly British. A diaper.
While a tissue as defined is:
1. A fine, very thin fabric, such as gauze.
2. Tissue paper.
3. A soft, absorbent piece of paper used as toilet paper, a handkerchief, or a towel.
With that in mind, I think whoever thought of the print should have used the term “tissue” instead.
It doesn’t end there. “Less napkins. More plants. More planet.”
Uhum, let’s revisit astronomy. Is it really possible to increase the number of planets in that case? What I learned ages ago was that, people are trying to explore other planets hoping there’d be soil in there to plant more. And if we plant more, there’d be more resources.
On the other hand, some paper bags only have the print “recycle” instead of Starbucks’ campaign to “Reuse. Then Recycle”. Finally, they made sense. To reuse is often thought as to recycle. In general, reusing is better than recycling.
And while I was finishing my dough and pulling my last sip, I glanced once again at the most sensible question from the statement table:

“Less napkins. More plants. More planet”
Most likely, who ever phrased this is either a Middle Eastern or a South Asian. I see lots of signs and ads here. Some wrong spelling, others grammatically wrong and sometimes illogical.

I love the statement table too. I’m not a Starbucks fan, I don’t even go there but everything looks and smells so good when you enter the store LOL. Coffee makes me vomit for some reason and all of Starbucks products are not exempted. Didn’t pass my tastes.
And I enjoyed your blog even if you were just passing time in there LOL.
Whoa! All in one sitting…
I was a fan of starbucks but I need to cut down because of budget.
boy, you sounded busy while waiting for your frap =).
whoa! very creative. i’ve seen one of those tables in starbucks but never even read any of those phrases. im impressed and i agree that the line “less napkis, more plants. more planet” needs to be rephrased or maybe totally changed.
nice nice nice! 😀 I never really paid much attention to the scribbles. I will definitely now.. 😀

So that’s what that table is for! I never really paid attention to it before…
Here’s my Starbucks story: Whenever the cashier would ask for my name, Garandee will say “GARANDO!!”. When I get my coffee, almost always, I find “Gerardo” written on it. 😀

Ooh, can I answer that last question? Today I am a person determined to be better than who I was yesterday. I thank you. (Bow, wave)
Interesting table—I have this habit of reading whatever I see although I have never encountered such a table in any Starbucks store I’ve been to.

to answer the last question.
“i am britney spears today” ahahhaha
I was in a Starbucks in Madrid last week and the grammar mistake on the napkins disappointed me. I’m sure that the word “fewer napkins” wouldn’t have taken away any power to their campaign. English should be used properly and can be used in many clever ways.
