Resolution number 1 is not as easy as it seems (see previous post). We have a known (maybe not in the same caliber as Starbucks but still known) coffee vendor here in the office. Since one of my new years resolutions is to help save paper by using tumblers instead of the disposable cups they have, I go to the coffee stand with my Starbucks tumbler in hand to get my daily dose of latte. Monday, I didn't use my tumbler yet. I asked the girl in the counter if I can just bring my tumbler the next time I buy coffee. She said yes, but only after I told her that I am not asking for a discount. The coffee is discounted anyway on account of the company paying a retainer for them. Tuesday, I brought my tumbler to the coffee stand. The girl didn't have a problem with it. She just assumed that my tumbler will probably have the same contents as their large cup. Wednesday, I again brought my tumbler and was served by the stand supervisor (I knew he was the sup because the girl calls him sir). He looked at me weirdly when I told him that I'll be using my tumbler instead of their paper cup. He got my cup, measured the coffee in the large paper cup, then transferred it to my tumbler. He then threw away the cup, which completely defeats the purpose of my new years resolution. Today, he did the same thing. This time I commented that I use my tumbler so that paper cup use will lessen. He reused the paper cup and gave it to the customer after me. I wonder what the person after me thought. Is it because of my Starbucks tumbler?
