Do I Want Her Kidney?

Starbucks has angels after all. A woman confides in her local corporate barista that she needs a kidney transplant and the barista elects to have herself tested. Lo and behold, it's a miracle. She's a match and the transplant was a success. Good for them.

The sad irony, of course, is that after years of drinking pot after pot of Starbucks' coffee, the new kidney will fail soon. With the barista's newfound lack of one kidney and a manic caffeine addiction, she'll find herself in need of a transplant soon. My advice is to ask people away from the coffee shop, as well as the bar.
