My local Starbucks remains open all night during the weekends. It's three miles from my house and has a drive-thru. Needless to say, I take advantage of these amenities on a regular basis. In fact, I so habitually frequent the place, I believe a vast percentage of my monthly earnings are lost within a matter of days to Starbucks. I even recognize the employees who run the drive-thru. I should just keep a tab. But do I protest this state of affairs? Certainly not! Hence my continued patronage. In fact, I can think of little better to spend my money on. This is the way I justify it: let's assume a hypothetical scenario in which I would not go to Starbucks (don't laugh too much). Instead, I would use my funds to be practical. Would my quality of life have improved? Certainly not.
Money can, in fact, buy happiness.
