When I use to go TDY for years my coworkers would laugh because even though all that "per diem" was on someone else's dime I still shopped and ate pretty much like I was paying for it myself. I was partly, it was tax payers money. I never order expensive stuff while on a date, I just look "foo foo" (funny you should use that term, I have heard it many times when they find out I am NOT).<quoted text>
Agree with you right there, AB! I will NOT pay that much for one cup of coffee. I'm quite comfortable here, all my bills get paid and I have enough to purchase non-essentials whenever I want them, but I'm not "stinking rich" by any stretch of the imagination, hehe. I can't see throwing that kind of money away on one cup of coffee ever day like some people do.
My ex mother in law is hooked on Starbucks, bless her heart. Personally? I never saw the big deal. Like I said, one of these 'foo foo' coffees and I'm done. I'm already back to my regular cup... That "Heath Bar" stuff was just too heavy and sweet.
(I'll portion it out later today to see if it freezes well, HAHA)!
I have tasted Starbucks, but have never bought one or ordered one if someone else offered to buy. I would rather have drank the hotel room coffee. haha We stayed in some nice hotels and resorts in Miami, Chicago, DC, Vegas, etc. I loved it. It was ALWAYS great to get back home. Guess that is why retirement was so hard to get use to.
It amazes me how many of my friends have those different types of coffee flavoring creamers or flavored coffee. I just like my coffee to taste like coffee.:)
