Cards and Coffee


My credit card company has a cafe in downtown San Francisco, which seems ridiculous, somehow.

  1. My credit cards seem intent on having a “relationship” with me. Their streams of e-mails put the letters of Browning and Barrett to shame. One of them sent me, unbidden, a box of high-end toiletries last month. Another keeps promising me incredible upgrades if only I book at this or that impossibly glamorous resort.

    But none of them just whimsically calls off this whole “billing” nonsense, alas…


  2. “Look at you sipping coffee and saving money” says one of the advertisement screens. What a cold, soulless, corporate looking hellhole. Are computers and mobile phones killing the art of conversation? just look at the clientele in there, clamped to their PCs and clutching their phones for dear life. I bet it’s so quiet in there you could hear a pin drop. I’d rather dine at McDonalds and I’m a vegetarian. No! a soup kitchen is more preferable.
