There is a nice rant on the "Starbucksation" of America on the Dawg Run.
I have always thought that Starbucks has enabled the anal-retentive to feel at home. This minority has now swelled in number, and what was once "would you mind" is now "this is how it must be". I have often fantasized about opening a coffee house where people are allowed one modifier. Try for more and they get drip coffee.
This fantasy in no way compares to be becoming a judge and throwing out (and punishing) people who bring about frivolous lawsuits.
