Overheard at Starbucks

It feels to me like $22 is the new $200. That is, I need to stretch $22 as if it's $200!

I hate loud people.

Not only was it a LOUD conversation in the middle of Starbucks, but he was talking about eBay like it was 1997 and he was the only person who'd ever sold anything on it.

That is hardly surprising. That location has a small, but obnoxiously loud group of pseudointellectual regulars.

Thanks Jeff, that's good to know. I just wanted someplace where I could chat with a client via phone and maybe jot some notes down on my remaining THG #11 articles I have to write. Ended up going card and grocery shopping instead because I couldn't concentrate with this guy blathering about vintage headlights, eBay and PayPal!
