The Drive-Thru Confusion
It is no mystery that if we were to take a scenario, like putting a popular coffee chain in the middle of the Sahara desert, there would be a 98% probability that people would charge through on their camels to get a cup. Why? Why is it that people stand, even sit in their car for twenty minutes waiting to get a coffee, then bitch and complain, only to repeat the same ritual day after day?
It never ceases to amaze me why people do this. Is it out of frustration, anguish, perhaps some strange form of satisfaction? Possibly, but don’t count on it. Theory has it, or at least it’s what I’ve heard, the reason everyone heads out the door for the most popular cup of coffee is due in part to its irresistible addictive properties, a natural water purification process combined with that special preparation. Having said that, who wants awesome coffee beans mixed with the water from a third world country where you will now doubt end up in a pretty serious java jam.
How does anyone get up first thing in the morning and end up in line for coffee in a bad mood? Why is that? What on earth happens?
It seems appropriate that in today's ever changing world two things will always remain constant in the world of coffee - those who drink it and those who serve it. However complicated our lives become, while coffee may seem nonessential, laughter is. We always have time for laughter, yet we always make time for that great cup of coffee.
