so many coffees, so little time

I lounged in Starbucks today after having lunch. There were two tables of talkers nearby. One was a Starbucks employee-supervisor pair, the other was a pair of what seemed to be businessmen. A lot of people seem to use Starbucks for work. I overhear the conversations about how the business is going, how one presents oneself, what the best way to get the sale is, why it seems like there is nobody around to help when the counter is slammed...

Where was I yesterday...Hobee's. There is a sign on the door at that restaurant that asks people to "limit cell phone use" for the benefit of other customers. I was quickly punching through the buttons to change my ring to "silent" when the waitress came up to take my order.
