Random Commuter Observations

***Starbucks ought to install electronic displays at the barista stations that keep track of all the orders taken by the cashiers - sort of like those flight information signs at airports. This would eliminate a good bit of shouting (on top of the machinery noises and also on top of the music from the CD's being flogged), and might go far to eliminating the kind of drink order confusion I've been dealing with lately.

*** The weather forecast is calling for a 50% chance of showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and evening around the Dee Cee area. I've personally increased that chance to 90% by absent-mindedly forgetting to toss the window panels into the back of the ol' jeep before setting off from the Orgle Manor stables this morning. Oh, well. Even if I do get drenched on the way home, this particular suit was scheduled for the cleaners anyhoo.

Caribou Coffee has those screens and I think their coffee is better. Of course, there isn't a Caribou on every corner like there are Starbucks.
