Here’s the Problem: Starbucks’ Non-Refill Refills

Here’s the Problem:  Did y’all know if you get a drink (specifically iced tea) from the ol’ Bucks in the A.M. and then go back with that soppy ol’ cup in the P.M. they’ll refill it for $.50?   Well if you said yes, you’re lying because that is NOT what happens.  What happens is you show the barista/unemployed actor/confused post-grad/wanna be vampire (no? only in my office building?) your soppy ol’ cup, give them 2 quarters and then they make you a new drink.  In a new cup.

Actual Problem:  This COMPLETELY defeats the purpose of a refill.  It’s wasteful and not cost efficient.  Does nomenclature mean anything anymore?
