Starbucks Finally Training Their Help...by Sybil Sage

Years after taking over the country, Starbucks is finally going to train their staff, which means today - for three hours - there will be no skinny soy lattes being served.

My recommendation is if you're scheduled for elective surgery, bring coffee to the operating room personnel as you don't want the anesthetist and others responsible for your well being to be in a daze. This will be a foggy day and not just in London town.

Note to Starbucks management: in addition to mentoring barrista skills, teach them to pick up trash, which is the hallmark of your chain.

Note to other chains: Follow the lead. Train, train, train.
