I don't know why these drive me so crazy, but they do! One lousy moment in your cup, followed by thousands of years in a landfill. It completely ruins my morning when I can't tell them to skip it in time. I cringe when I think of the thousands of customers who get these useless things stuck in their cups daily. I literally drive 10 feet from the pickup window and chuck the blasted thing out my window towards the trash. Bah*.
The infamous Starbucks Swizzle Stick
*My wife has warned me about my blog posts that end in "Bah". It's a definite symptom of blog snarkiness.
