Funny Things in Houston

I stopped at the Weslayan/59 Starbucks on the way to work today (since my favorite Shepherd store by 59 Diner was closed).

This one has a drive through, although I don’t see any need to use the drive through. There were about six cars waiting in line.

I strolled in. There was nobody waiting in line. My redeye was done in a flash and I was off.

People were still waiting in the drive through, wasting gasoline and belching emissions into the fine Houston air, as I drove off. Anything for some Houstonians to avoid that crazy thing that involves putting one foot in front of the other, repeatedly, I guess.

  • A former classmate of ours was nuts about the drive-thru, even when one could walk in and get one’s food more quickly. Ah, "45"-how mean of you to give him that numerical appellation, but with Roman numerals!


  • Ha ha ha ha, I didn’t realize 45 was such a fan of drive-throughs!

    I bet a devotee of Joel Osteen’s $elf-help teachings would not have bestowed such a nickname on a person.

  • I never use drive-throughs because I can never understand what the person on the other end is saying.
