Remember when there were too many Starbucks?

Today I was looking to take part in the last day of Starbucks’ half-price Frappuccinos while traveling home from a trip to my sister’s house. And get this: I couldn’t find a Starbucks.

Remember when everyone’s joke was about how Starbucks would open up right across from another Starbucks (because, well, they would)? My car’s GPS led me to two different Starbucks supposedly on my way that had both closed. One of them had closed so recently that the sign was still on the outside of the building.

So, sadly, I never got my half-price vegan Frappuccino. Maybe next time. In the meantime, Starbucks should try opening up some more shops.

I saw at least one in Bahrain. Still just as overpriced though. However, they had freshly squeezed orange juice. It was goood! Have yet to go to one here in the states that does that.

A ‘coffee house’ that’s always fresh out of coffee? Opening a $tar$uck$ inside a $tar$uck$? $tar$uck$ is overrated!

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
