Espresso Checkout Line

In a coffee shop the other day I was stuck in line behind somebody ordering a "venti double skinny mocha vanilla mumbo jumbo", or something. Which is a drink, it turns out.

That's when I decided that coffee shops should have an express line, for those of us that actually want to order coffee, with a large sign saying "Two Adjective Limit Per Customer".

Of course, if I were running a coffee shop it would only serve four drinks -- espresso, cappuccino, latte and macchiato. If you want something with flavored syrup or whipped cream, try the Dairy Queen.

Bollocks to that.

If I was running a coffee shop, it would serve one kind of coffee, and with two options. With milk or without.]

Bloomin' nancy fancy coffee. It's ridiculously hard to get a plain black coffee anywhere these days without resorting to Italian.
