Feel the Seam

A Pet Peeve: You know how the cups of coffee that you buy at Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts or wherever have a vertical seam in their paper shells, that culminates in a little folded section on the lip of the cup themselves? Well . . . don’t you think that people who are in the coffee serving bidness would know better than hand you a coffee cup with the sipping hole in the lip placed exactly above that little flaw in the lip, ensuring that when you sip, it dribbles down the outside of the cup and onto your tie? The proper placement of the coffee cup seam: exactly 180 degrees around the cup from the sipping hole, making a nice finger friendly ridge to grip, giving you smooth sipping on the drinking side.
