Not necessarily trendy, for me it was simply a timesaver. Get up in the morning, grab a bite to eat and head out the door, grab a coffee to go along the way and hopefully be alert by the time I get to work.
One time as I was waiting for a bus a group of young people walked by, and one of them dropped some coins into my cup... he must have thought I was a homeless person just standing there and waiting for donations. There was only an inch of coffee left at the bottom of the cup, and I debated with myself over whether or not I should try swigging down the last few drops. I didn't know whether I should be angry or amused, so I opted for amusement, and why not... I ended up with a story to tell years later. And I'm sure there's a moral to this story, but I'm still not sure what that moral is. Be forgiving of false compassion? Suffer fools gladly? I don't know, is
there a moral to this story?
