    I simply do not understand why you think training is an answer to this abject failure. Certainly, what we have here is a Starbucks location (not just the manager) that is okay with kicking out certain people that don’t meet their subjective standards. But what they really did was hire the wrong people, and possibly incentived them in absolutely the wrong way. Training isn’t the answer here, but rather hiring practices, and what you really pay people to do.

    I just watched the movie Eye in the Sky, and if you haven’t, you should. A first lieutenant drone operator actually told a full colonel that he couldn’t launch a Hellfire that would kill noncombatants unless he had more information on the situation. I wish more people would think like that.

    And to be honest, I just don’t get the “third space” thing at all. I simply don’t understand why you might need some place between home and work, probably because both of those have always blended in for me seamlessly. And I have never tasted coffee, I simply hate the smell of it, so you will never find me in a Starbucks. i don’t understand why people tolerate the stuff.
