it's not just you. I get disgusted at any level of flies in any establishment where there is food or drink served.

Or any other place for that manner. I HATE flies!!! Tell them Jenn, point them out and if they don't care, Bye, Bye there is NO excuse in this day and age for flies in any establishment serving food or drink. EWWWWWWWWW!!!

Maybe you could smack one with a newspaper and take it up and plop it on their counter or something equally as gross!!

Have you ever watched "Hell's Kitchen" on Fox? A really mean chef goes in and fixes up failing restaurants. Most of the time they're failing because of innocent things like they need new plates or a new menu, but some of the more disgusting restaurants are failing because they violate the health code in a million different ways. These ways include rotting food, leaking freezers, rats, roaches, and a variety of chef-related bodily fluid contaminations.

It's enough to make you want to request to see the food prep area of any food/drink establishment.

Flies = who knows what else in the back?

P.S. Don't watch that show. You'll never eat out again.

This is like FLY YEAR or something. I have never seen such horrible flies. I have no screen door and often leave my front door open (I live in a back house way off the street, so that's not as weird as it sounds) and I have been INFESTED with the disgusting little bastards.

One night I killed about 30. Every day I think of going to get one of those horrible yellow tape things but I just can't bring myself to do it, and I won't use poison around my house. Eeeh.

I've never noticed, but then I don't go in there very often. I like how you referred to it as "the Starbucks." :) Also, Amber is a barista now! No lie!

We are starbucksless here. But I'm with you on the whole flies thing in any establishment.

Am I doing okay? said...

A Texas trick is to hang plastic bags of water suspended from the ceiling. I disorients them. You see it a all the BBQ joints. True.

Flies make me crazy... never noticed them at Starbucks but then again I'm a Dunkin Donuts coffee girl....

What is up with gnats though? They almost make me crazier than flies!!! Nothing like seeing them go after your glass of wine at dinner.... Hello EW!

They must disturb you. You actually called Starbucks "Starbucks".

No you're not insane - it's totally disgusting. I hate it even more though when you're waving your arms around and the fly is really aggressive and lands on your lip or something. EEEEW.
