Starbucks Around the World: Bolingbrook, IL

photo-2

Well, I’m back on the road to St. Louis for the second time in a week.  The Starbucks off of I-55 in Bolingbrook was pretty much the same at the Starbucks in Springfield, with one notable exception:

The cashier appeared nervous.  Perhaps he somehow knew that I’m a famous travel writer visiting Starbucks-es around the world (she says sarcastically).  Actually, he had cut his hand and I think felt nervous about serving customers. He was wearing a glove (good move), explained to me why he was wearing it…

…to which another barista replied that he was actually imitating Michael Jackson today…

…to which I replied that he would do a better imitation if he studded his plastic glove in rhinestones.
