    Coffee Shops Should Have A Separate Line For People Who Just Want A Damn Cup Of Coffee

    A Very Important petition to the coffee shops of America.

    I like coffee. Just plain, drip coffee. With a little milk.

    And by "like" I mean "depend on to continue living."

    But when I go to a coffee shop to get a cup of coffee, I realize how many people are NOT THERE FOR COFFEE.

    This is not coffee.

    Also not coffee.

    Very pretty, but not coffee.

    The thing about a plain cup of coffee is that it is already prepared. It is nice and hot, and no one needs to do anything except pour it into an extra-large cup for me.

    So, coffee shops of America, I have an idea: Make a separate line for those of us who just want a goddamned cup of coffee.


    So we don't have to wait behind someone ordering a half-caf, sugar-free, extra-shot caramel-chai macchiato, extra hot.

    Please and thank you.
