Starbucks is Not for Drive Thru

I was talking to a friend yesterday on the telephone; he was going through the Taco Bell Drive-Thru, he said,
"Are you meeting a lot of friends on Lake Atitlan?"
I say,
"Yes as normal, I am meeting many people, "
And proceed to tell him about the Guatemala City girl on the boat, working for some NGO to save the Environment, which is going to Switzerland next week."



Going through the Starbucks Drive-Thru is lunacy, like grabbing the worst value off the top and missing all the fun.

I sometimes want to grab my friends and slap them, if you want to meet friends, girls, or just have some fun, do not go through the drive-through. I do not want them to go home, watch a movie and get on Facebook; I want some real people served up.

Stop and think, make yourself available for friendship.

Go into the StarBucks, pay for the incredibly over-priced coffee and chat up some women.

Go into the Taco Bell, if nobody is in there, go to another Restaurant, pretend you are Bar Hopping, I surely hope the lonely people do not stay in bars just to drink, get a life.



Friendship is on the Decline
"According to a study documented in the June 2006 issue of the journal American Sociological Review, Americans are thought to be suffering a loss in the quality and quantity of close friendships since at least 1985. The study states 25% of Americans have no close confidants, and the average total number of confidants per citizen has dropped from four to two."

By the way, the people with the most friends listen more than they talk, and turn on the charm... think about it. Say, hello Mary, how are you Mary, people love to hear their name as much as they want to see their FACE on Facebook.
