Yesterday, I popped into one of the several hundred branches of Starbucks in Canary Wharf (that is only a slight exageration) for lunch and the lady was preparing a paper cup rather than the usual china mugs.

starbucks mugsI squeeked a bit and reminded her that I was eating/drinking in – and she explained that they had managed to run out of mugs, so all customers were getting the take-away cups.

Not an issue frankly, but damn strange that they could “run out” of mugs on what was actually one of their quieter days.

    I saw the news coming through on my RSS feeds this morning about the CEO/Chairman job changes – whilst I was sitting in a branch doing some work.

    A bit sureal actually.
