It started innocently enough: an occasional early morning visit with my friend from the billing department, and only when I had a gift card. I was adamant about that…in the beginning.
Then work got busier, more stressful and I found myself looking for excuses to get away from my desk, get outside, get away! The visits became more frequent, and now I was spending my own hard-earned money. With the weather growing chillier it became even easier to justify stopping in and dropping a few bucks on my way to the train. Hell, I even took the time on my way back from the chiropractor the other day. Then I stopped again on my way to catch the train home. Twice. In. One. Day!
It’s a slippery slope my friends. If you aren’t already addicted to Starbucks* stay away – it’s a TRAP!
*We’re not talking fancy coffee here either; I almost never get anything other than a grande drip Pike for heaven’s sake!
