All roads lead to Starbucks

Saturday, January 10th, 2009

I would normally argue that there are too many Starbucks locations in this country. If asked, I would probably estimate there being about 1 per every 10 people. Roughly. So, in a city the size of Sacramento, we have about 120 000 Starbucks locations.

Again, I could be off by a couple, so don’t quote me on this.

When the wife gets the shakes and need her fix, however, this Starbucks density situation could prove to be a beneficial one. Especially when it turns out you’re in an unfamiliar area without a clue where the nearest coffee oasis might be hiding out.

It is therefore comforting to know that you can get in a car, drive in an arbitrary direction of your choosing and within two minutes be placing an order for a tall latte, to then be able to caffeineate the wife before the inevitable breakdown due to skewed levels of caffeine in her bloodstream.

Thank you Starbucks.
