You never thought you’d have to tell people…

On a straw wrapper at Starbucks: “Not recommended for use with hot beverages.”

Wow. Glad to see they’re looking out for the customer welfare. That ranks right up there with “Caution: This coffee is hot” in the “Duh” category.

The sad part is you know they had to do that because someone decided it would be a good idea to drink the scalding hot latte through a straw…

    You can thank the “suing” culture in America for that one.

    I’ve decided most people lack commone sense – that’s why there have to be such insane recommendations on packaging.

    My favorite ever is “Keep knife out of children.”

    Yeah, hot drinks through a straw are rather unpleasant. I have done it numerous times while sharing a hot chocolate with Matthias. The insanity of the whole thing is totally worth it. It’s just a little painful. (Even just-above-warm drinks feel hot when you’re sucking them through a straw.)
