If you're going to patronize Starbucks, you're going to have to bring a complement of trendy lifestyle behaviors with you. Sure, you're paying premium prices, but that doesn't entitle you to sit there stifling belches or scratching your junk. Texting on your BlackBerry or iPhone fits the bill perfectly. Myself, if I'm stepping out for a cup of coffee, it's in order to get away from people who can reach me in my usual haunts. Guess I'm just lucky that I'm not that indispensable. Dispensability is one of my strengths. Yikes! The blog editor just spell-checked my use of "dispensability" and suggested I replace it with "decomposability"! Come to think of it, though, that's proving to be one of my strong points, too. I'm getting better at it every day.
