I just thought this was amusing (has nothing to do with real estate). It seems some creative people are getting their coffee fix on the cheap. From the Seattle Times -
If someone pays $2 for espresso, then fills half the cup with milk at the condiment bar, is that stealing?
People are saving $1 to $2 a cup — sometimes more, if they use half-and-half or get extra shots — with creative ordering from the complicated menus of the coffee world.
There are lots of ways to save. In one scenario, using Starbucks pricing in downtown Seattle, customers pay $2.05 before tax for three shots of espresso over ice. The same beverage with milk — also known as an iced latte with extra espresso — would cost $3.50 before tax.
Luckily the coffee tax was voted down, who knows what anarchy could have ensued.
