Get a Grip People

Why is the world we live in so freaking sensitive? Why is everything somehow misconstrued to mean everything and anything? Why is everything taken so literally that people turn NOTHING into something every time?

Starbucks introduced the "skinny" latte early in the New Year. What does this mean really? Well, for me it means that instead of ordering a Venti-Non-fat-No Whip-Sugar free-Cinnamon Dolce Latte, I can order a Venti Skinny Cinnamon Dolce. All it means to me is that I have to say fewer words. Why in God's name would that be offensive?

So all you out there who chose to make issues out of everything in life and think the world is out to get you go right ahead. As for me I thank Starbucks for helping me in my daily life by making me have to say fewer words when I order my drink. Starbucks, I salute you!!

I swear people will complain about anything just to complain.

Yeah, that is stupid. That's one of my pet peeves, actually, is when people get all bent out of shape over NOTHING! Get a life, I say!

I AGREE! Who wants to stumble over so many words! Oh and by the way - "When you eat your smarties do you eat the red ones last?" I eat the blue ones last...but not anymore because I am in the USA....BOOOO! My mommy sent me 5 packs for Christmas but I want more!
