Starbucks doesn't correct me anymore when I order a 'medium' coffee. They used to always reply "Grande?" to my, "Medium." Someone must have had a word with the collective Starbucks baristas. The shift happened around the time the economy fell apart, and I speculate that ordering in non-English sizing became less of a priority for the coffee corporation. I know a lot of coffee purists who would never set foot in a Starbucks, but I'm a fan of the consistency and reasonably clean public restrooms. Plus I use their bathrooms all the time without buying anything, and no one's ever yelled at me. Not yelling at me goes a long way. I've spent enough in that chain to cover restroom rights for me and whatever children and grandchildren I ever have.
