Yeah, because full time jobs all make you work every single day...? Could've been written on a Sunday and she buys coffee before or at work on days she's working. I can only assume half the commenters being snotty don't have jobs either because apparently they don't know how they actually work. Funnily enough, I came into the comments section thinking the OP was being ridiculous.
I live in Calgary, PLUS I work at McDonald's. free small coffee, medium is 21 cents large is 42 for another week. And McDonald's coffee is some of the best coffee out there. We're above Starbucks in sales and closing in on Tim hortans. I've never heard of McDonald's selling coffee for 3 bucks... It's not even 2 bucks regular price. So wherever you live is fucked
#31, I live in America, where they would charge for breathing air if they could. I don't know what free is in my part of town. #40 Hell yeah I'm jealous! Well, not so much because it's McDonald's, but that coffee can be that cheap at your fast food.. But right on. I mean, if it's cheap, then buy your coffee there. I'm just saying that the McDonalds near my area, is kinda pricey for preheated food and the coffee is no bueno. Maybe it's just that branch. I dunno.
Stand on the corner of the highway in torn clothes with a sign on cardboard. I give money to those people all of the time.
#37, While those are heartwarming signs, I hope you didn't interpret my comment the wrong way. I merely enjoy someone with a sense of humor. I mean, there are some people who are in poverty that are so bitter whereas there are people, such as the gentlemen that was holding the sign that I loved, who are upbeat. This man was poor, sleeping under a bridge, and currently trying to get a job at McDonalds, but yet, he was cheerful. Funny. Endearing. You see? He had nothing, yet he still found reasons to smile, and make others smile. So I gave him money. While I'll give money to others, because I have seen signs like you have stated above as well, I just expressed my preference for the more humorous ones because, well.. They see past life's hardships.
Time for a change. I bet you'd have more money if you didn't buy coffee everyday.
39- I agree, not to mention how screwed up the priorities in this whole FML thread is. This is hardly an FML. Come back when you're scrounging together pennies to buy your first meal in two days, like the truly impoverished people who deserve to say "fuck my life". They have 1001 more reasons to complain than you, yet most of them realize it could be worse, that someone else is probably in a worse place, so they're grateful for every cent, every drop of water and every laugh.
Perhaps if you didn't buy so many cups of coffee, you could afford your own $10 coffee machine and coffee beans. That way you can make your own coffee for a few pennies a cup, and I guarantee you it's 100x better than that swill they sell at Starbucks.
Try water for a change. Or visit a friend with a coffee machine.
