buying "feminine products" for my wife at the drug store or...
ordering her go-to drink at Starbucks:
Starbucks: Hi, what can I get started for you today?
Me: Um, an Iced Grande, one Pump, Skinny, Vanilla Latte
Starbucks: Sure, coming right up.
Me: Its not for me...Dont forget to put a stopper in it and a sleeve because of the heat.

Starbucks wins, hands down. No one is going to think you need girl stuff but the drink can easily be mistaken as being yours.

You should also make sure that they put a nice little pink drink umbrella in it too! Biggrin

It takes the wife forever to make up her mind what to order at any of the drive-up coffee places (so I avoid 'em as much as possible).

I've never been to Starbucks and I don't even know what all the "Latte" type things are. I go for regular coffee with cream and sugar. I don't understand the fascination with iced coffee products either that every fast food chain is pumping out now. But I have had to buy the stuff the woman needs at Walmart and I've got to tell you there's quite a big selection of them and I was feeling humiliated standing in that isle, as I felt the whole store was watching me.

Never purchased coffee from a starbucks. Been in several restaurants that used their coffee. I guess my tastebuds are too accustomed to a more bland and less expensive cup of joe.

Don't miss picking up the feminine products but I never had to do make it part of a regular routine. Things change with time as 38 years of marriage will attest.

24 Noah, I'm with you buddy. I like my coffee strong and black. I have no idea what my wife is talking about when she orders, nor have I ever attempted your... order.

It's as bad as cigarettes now. I can remember working at a grocery store as a teen and people asking for Virginia slims Superslims Deluxe Ultra light Menthol 120's. When I smoked, it was always just Camel lights, no long names for me. I also use two words for my coffee. Black and Strong!!!
