Anonymous asked:

I ordered a toffeenut white mocha with and was charged 33 cents more than what I was normally charged when I got the drink a month ago. I know about Starbucks increasing the prices but it said by 5-20 cents, I was charged 33 cents extra. Why?

Slicing through pools of streetlight Answer:

I don’t know where you read the 5-20 cents fact but in my action items on my store computer’s portal, we are only told that prices are going up ‘by a few cents.’ They don’t give us specific amounts. They don’t say, “Our espresso bean farms in Brazil have been affected by weather factors beyond our control and so beans have been limited.”

I am not a corporate suit, I work in “ground zero” if you will, in a store. I don’t know why your coffee went up by the obsessively specific number of 33 cents, and I really can’t understand why you think I would know. 

"How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true;
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face."
- W.B. Yeats (via observando)
"Everyone tries to make his life a work of art. We want love to last and we know that it does not last; even if, by some miracle, it were to last a whole lifetime, it would still be incomplete. Perhaps, in this insatiable need for perpetuation, we should better understand human suffering, if we knew that it was eternal. It appears that great minds are, sometimes, less horrified by suffering than by the fact that it does not endure. In default of inexhaustible happiness, eternal suffering would at least give us a destiny. But we do not even have that consolation, and our worst agonies come to an end one day. One morning, after many dark nights of despair, an irrepressible longing to live will announce to us the fact that all is finished and that suffering has no more meaning than happiness."

"I’d just say to aspiring journalists or writers—who I meet a lot of—do it now. Don’t wait for permission to make something that’s interesting or amusing to you. Just do it now. Don’t wait. Find a story idea, start making it, give yourself a deadline, show it to people who’ll give you notes to make it better. Don’t wait till you’re older, or in some better job than you have now. Don’t wait for anything. Don’t wait till some magical story idea drops into your lap. That’s not where ideas come from. Go looking for an idea and it’ll show up. Begin now. Be a fucking soldier about it and be tough."
