This is like one of my biggest pet peeves.” Brandon says his date left the theater and took off without him leaving him to find his own ride home.

  • The Daily Mail claims Oliver Ruiz dropped out of Italy's University of Milan so he could move to London to drink Starbucks. The 24 year-old recently quit his job and now spends all day drinking coffee at various Starbucks stores.

He tells the paper; ''I was at work on Tuesday and it was so sunny outside. I just thought 'I want a Starbucks'. So I said 'what am I doing here' and told my boss that I quit my job there and then. The only way I could have got it was to quit my job, so that's what I did. I didn't really care if [the job is] what I had to do - I really wanted a green tea latte. When I have the cup in my hand I feel settled and happy. I feel safe and relaxed as soon as I see the sign. Even if I'm lost in another country I'll go there and feel at home. I'll fund my habit by using my savings and then when they run out, I'll work for a while again if I have to. I plan to fund it mostly with my savings from work.''
