Seeing Spots at Starbucks

What does it mean when one of the world’s biggest brands is determined to keep you…AWAKE! ALERT! On TOP of Things!

It means that when they fudge their punctuation in a home mailer, you’re going to find it!

Thanks to my Very! Alert! reader, M., who wasn’t sure at first if he was seeing spots from too much coffee, or if Starbucks had thrown in an extra period. Well, they did. I hope you enjoyed your free drink, M!

    That is just plain sad.

    Maybe the last period should be a question mark.
