I have coffee with the guys nearly every morning. Most of us walk to the coffee shop together, although one of us routinely makes it there by himself. The place we purchase coffee is in a public building with little shops. Three of us were waiting third in line, we take turns buying, and the fourth member of our crew enters the building, sees the line, sees us and then proceeds to walk right through to the far side exit.

"What's up with him?" I was asked.

"He thinks this line is too long to wait in. He's not going to wait in line for coffee."

"You've got to be joking."

"No. I bet you that's his reason."

"Maybe he goes there to get his coffee a lot cheaper."

"Cheaper by what, a nickel?"

"Yeah, that's what I mean by a lot. That's a lot to him"

It turns out that he indeed didn't want to wait in line. He got a cup of coffee that wasn't as good and wasn't some funky flavor that he usually like to drink because he's a mental case.

I can understand not waiting in long lines but when the line isn't long and you're with friends whom you're talking with while you wait, you're a retard if you don't wait especially if you get an inferior product elsewhere.

Hello! There is a reason there is a line.

And that other place has no line because the coffee sucks.
