Dying for Coffee

A funeral home in South Carolina is opening up a Starbucks.  Yes, a Starbucks.  I understand people are addicted to coffee, but do we really need to get some coffee when we’re saying goodbye to someone forever?

Apparently the answer is yes.


Robinson Funeral Home in Easley South Carolina has hired a full-staff of baristas to serve the grieving.  Nothing like a Skinny Caramel Macchiato as you send grandma or grandpa to their eternal resting place.

Easley does not have a Starbucks in town so this will be an opportunity for non-grieving to get their caffeine fix too.  I just hope the lines aren’t too long. 

Could you imagine someone who’s late for work getting grumpy because they can’t get their White Chocolate Mocha immediately?

The conversation would probably go something like this:

Customer 1 (who is also a mourner): “I’d like a Cinnamon Dolce Latte please.”

Customer 2 (person late for work): “Man!  Can’t this line move any faster!?  I’m dying back here!”


Maybe we should have more things in funeral homes.  It might help us put things in perspective.  The next time you’re in line at the DMV or the grocery store, you might not get as angry if you happen to see a funeral going on out of the corner of your eye.

Good One!
Thanks for the chuckle this morning. The next line for Customer 2 would be something like: "This slow service is killing me." GT

World's Worst iPod: Donny Osmond "Soldier of Love"
It's hard to believe that Donny Osmond scored his second biggest solo hit in 1989, but it's true! "Soldier of Love" went all the way to #2 on the charts. When the song was released, the record company was afraid no one would buy a new Donny...

World's Worst iPod: Exile "Kiss You All Over"
Kitty thought this song was an example of country disco and was not a fan...but just about everybody else was. "Kiss You All Over" was #1 for four weeks in 1978, and was probably one of the year's best songs. Exile rocks out with the song here...

World's Worst iPod: Young MC "Bust a Move"
Kitty apppeared to be all alone on her dislike of this song, which made it to #7 on the charts in 1989. Rolling Stone described the song this way: "a G-rated funk-bomb integral to hip-hop's eventual mainstream acceptance." The G-rating probably...
