MOVERS AND SHAKERS ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


Change was in the air yesterday at 7th and Montana as an Anonymous Mover and Shaker made the scene with one goal in mind: To reorganize Our Favorite Starbucks. I knew something was up when a man dressed in the Ubiquitous Starbucks Management black shirt and khaki slacks started walking around with a clipboard, making suggestions to Manager Extraordinaire Gabe who, in turn, listened intently. At one point, the Mover and Shaker asked a customer for advice. "Is this holiday display in your way?," he asked. "Yes," said the customer, "Maybe you could move it a bit further away from my table." Moments later, a Workerbee slid the display-in-question a few inches to the East. I waited patiently, but the Mover and Shaker never asked me for my opinion (despite my obvious efforts to get his attention). Had he asked, I would have said: "Take a sledgehammer to the wall separating us from the now-defunct surf shop next door. You barely have enough room for coffee beans let alone customers. Go ahead, Break on Through to the Other Side ...!"

Is Moving and Shaking a degree you can get at a business college? Sounds like that might be a fun thing to do!

I like the surfboard suggestion. You could mount them on little posts and have a seat to drink your coffee and eat your fritters!

I'm surprised you didn't ask to be saved from the Apple Fritters! LOL
