Starbuck's coffee lids are abysmal

Anyone ever had trouble with the lids on Starbuck's coffee. I do. Everyday. I swear there must be a science to the application of a starbuck's coffee lid. One wrong move and a little bit of coffee to a nice general dripping of coffee will surely find its way out.

The first flaw in the lids is actually a flaw in the Starbuck's coffee cup. See that seam running down one side of the cup. That is you worst enemy. For a Starbuck's coffee cup to not spill whatsoever (and even this does not seem to work) that seam needs to be 180 degrees opposite the opening in the lid. Perhaps this is common sense, but I can assure you that Starbuck's employee's do not always, when making your coffee, place the lid at this orientation.

What does this lead to you may ask ... Well everyday while driving to work I will place my starbucks coffee cup in one of my Accord's cupholders. All is well so far. As my drive commences however is when the spillage begins. Because of the fullness of the coffee cup the stop and go motion of the car inevitably leads to some coffee spilling to the top of the cup. But you have a lid on you say. Yes, very nice. But a small protrusion forms where the seam of the coffee cup meets the lid. Coffee will collect here and when it has formed into large enough drops begin dripping down the side of the cup.

THIS CANNOT ONLY HAPPEN TO ME. Someone out there who shares my grief please post your starbucks coffee cup mishap.

you have angered the starbucks cup fairy - you must placate the fairy by performing hazelnut sacrifice ritual...

on the other hand, since you go get coffee every morning, get a refillable cup. you won't have the trouble and you will be good to the environment while you are at it.

With that said....I really like the way you pointed out how orgasms and pleasures can be experienced beyond the body.
.. it really is not only experienced through
the private personal parts. It could be experienced by means
of spiritual and mental stimulation as nicely.? Numerous researchers agree
that the strongest and largest sexual organ on and in our bodies is the
brain. My best orgasms are done by means of individuals whom I was deeply in adore.
..whom I am mentally and spiritually connected. Media does not cover that.

Chelsea, I take advantage of discount coupons, as well.

Possibly the usage of coupon codes was a bad example of not becoming generous.
I had been considering far more like becoming inexpensive.

Getting low cost is really a huge turnoff.

I'm pretty sure Martin will say that it depends and it does since everyone can be a bit different. A great deal of things go into determining calorie and nutrient intakes. Age, exercise levels, carb sensitivity....list will get lengthy.
