NEWS FLASH: Starbucks Closes; World Keeps Turning

The much-feared (by many people) Starbucks closing has come and gone, and there have been no reports of people jumping out of windows or collapsing from caffeine withdrawal. Yes, the coffee chain that seems to have a shop on every corner closed for three and a half hours to retrain its staff on how to make good coffee and offer good customer service, and the world did not come to an end.

And not only will the sun rise tomorrow, but it promises to be a brighter day for everyone: Coffee! excellence! Improved customer service! Happier baristas! Yes, the sun will come out tomorrow... bet your bottom dollar! Or rather five dollars, since we're talking Starbucks.
