Do you ever get that uncomfortable feeling when you cheat on our barista and buy a coffee from another cafe?Why does that guilt consume us? There must be a smart doctor who has written a very clever PHD about this peculiar phenomenon.
I’ve heard about ridiculousness from a lady hiding her piccolo latte precariously in her Prada handbag to someone who walked an additional 3 blocks to totally avoid being seen with another coffee in his hand.
Stop it. It’s all cool. You are not locked into a 50 year contract with no termination clause. Just walk past proudly, as I do, wave hello, preferably with the spare hand and simply smile.
It’s better than feeling guilty and at least you don’t come across like a total snob.
