Best Story of the Week

I’m in Starbucks putting milk in my coffee standing between a middle-aged woman and a girl around 20.

As I’m stirring I watch the younger one take a good 40 sugar packets she casually puts in her purse.

The older woman says, snapping her line like she’s resurrected Bea Arthur, “What, you have a horse at home?”

I had to laugh. ย You can’t write this stuff. ย Well actually you can, if you’re lucky enough to hear it.



About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Thanks.

    “Free” is a much abused word. There’s always a caveat. So “free to customers” or “free when you buy…….” is not really free, even to a horse owner.

    Susannah, it’s a good thing that girl wasn’t around when sugar was under lock and key, ha ha! And what a great quip from the older woman. What was the younger girl’s reaction or response?


  4. I would have laughed out loud. 40 packets? Really? Was she gonna bake a cake?

  5. She’s got a quick wit on her. It kind of makes me wonder why the girl took so many. Hopefully not just to eat one after the other.

    • Kate thinks she’s baking cakes. I think it was just an unconscious, it’s there for the taking, kind of thing. I’ve seen people help themselves before, but admit, never that many. Greed, unconscious or otherwise, is an eternal turnoff.


  6. The sugar police are always on duty! I love overhearing … lol
