As if Baristas can be intimidated

There are so many life lessons in this story:
  • no cuts (didn't we learn this in kindergarten?)
  • if you really enjoy a good cup of coffee, law enforcement might be a good career choice
  • expect irrational behavior from people who drink six specialty cups of coffee daily
  • people can be fanatical about their Starbucks beverages, but that rarely leads to good things
  • when you are lying, don't be the first to mention taking a polygraph test
  • refrain from making idle threats - your bluff will probably be called
  • if your name is "Major," avoid employment where your title might be "lieutenant"
There's a saying often quoted in and around the IRS tax court: "Pigs get fed. Hogs get slaughtered."
