They have straws at Starbucks I thought they banned those...

As a frequent Starbucks purchaser/moron I can tell you they do.  Most you just have to ask they dont keep them out anymore.  My kid always wants a straw and have never been turned down.  Some places have paper ones but they still have them.

Saving turtles is so 2019.

I think I would rather lick the floor than to use a paper straw. Cant take that or popsicle stick textures

Maybe I live a very weird and unusual life, or maybe I just go to the wrong places, but I'm not sure I've ever seen a paper straw anywhere. Then again, I don't drink coffee. 

 

And dammit, the chalkboard comment just gave me bad flashbacks to middle school when teachers would have us write stuff on the board, and the kid with terrible handwriting would make the chalk squeak with every other word. Stuff that nightmares are made of...

That's my rankings anyway. 

Just no to paper straws. Stainless steel ftw.

My kid and I like the Starbucks refreshers and the cold brew.  Pumpkin Cold brew is amazing!

Paper straws are the absolute worst.  Best straws are the ones made from corn or other real food materials as they still are solid like plastic but are edible for wildlife and i believe deteriorate quickly but not too quickly to finish your drink.

If I go to Starbucks it's for something other than their normal coffee.  Just tastes bitter to me. I do like the non coffee drinks and some of the food stuff.

Got paper straws at Chic-fila the other day....what is this world coming too! Don't these people know that God put dinosaurs and prehistoric plants and animals on this earth so we could drink through a decent straw without it splitting or becoming a wet mess?! I mean after all they mastered God's chicken surely they couldn't screw up something as simple as a straw lol.

If (and that’s a big if) we go to Starbucks I make my wife lean over me and order. Their menu is too much/complicated. Otherwise this is how I am ordering:

Obviously we will find out this weekend what the deal is w/Kopp but just checked Bloomington police log and nothing I see suggesting any arrest or ongoing case located by the sample gates.

Yeah if it was anything serious it seems like it would have been leaked by now.

I was at French Lick casino the other night and they have paper straws now. I tried it but ended up just removing the lid from my drink.
