Steamy coffee leaves grounds for concern
I’m embarrassed for the bad pun,¹ but the subject is serious. Two stories appeared in the two major local newspapers on the same day.
- Coffee stands experiment with “sexpresso”, using scantily-glad baristas to lure customers. (Taiwan has been doing this for ages, not without controversy.)
- Man charged for stalking, threatening barista.
Sure, it may have been a coincidence, but I considered it a cautionary tale.
when the coffee stand owner decides to adopt a provocative dress code.
Over a year later, NPR picks up the story.
¹I’m not embarrassed for making a pun, just that it’s a bad pun. (Some people would argue that there’s no such thing as a good pun.)
