Applications and Notifications

I received a notification from the Starbucks app that I get a free Nitro shot today. 8:30AM I’m the morning it made me happy. My “loyalty” had paid off. Or so I thought. I proudly walked into the store. Struggling to connect to the WiFi at first and then sheepishly explaining my situation to the Barista. She finally said “of course!”, with some displeasure. I’m glad she understood my need for this free offer. She eventually gave me my shot.

A 2 inch shot glass with the Nitro coffee. Worth the trouble? Maybe not. The experience was not even worth a blog post. Then?
