Coffee on the go

Perhaps it's just me but I cannot see the point in buying a coffee or other hot drink and then walking about drinking the stuff.

Of course it's likely to be cheaper ? no vat ? if you take it out.....but sit down on a bench or wall and drink it...

Does anyone else in the age range 70+ drink on the go......?

Handy for warming the hands on a cold day though, especially when waiting for a bus, just don't sit it between your legs... Grin

Re: Coffee on the go

"Coffee on the go"   has been trendy since the 80`s cop series on the telly, when the female cop of the pair was told to go and get some coffee for the guy, while he sat in the driver`s seat waiting for a call to arms... then the pair of them would be seen high-tailing it through crowds of people on the pavements, and drinking the coffee "on the go" ..

 Today,  it is part of the silly "trendy" set, the same as men over 17 growing beards to try and emulate the royals !

There is probably a corrolation between the rise in feminism / womens rights and the number of men growing beards,  just sayin'.

Re: Coffee on the go

Just trendy as @shutter suggests.

Often seen on TV where a character turns up clutching coffee which I take it is to signify how busy and important they are - which of course is why I never do, but then I never did.

We are being taken over, by shoulder bag coiffed coffee carriers munching veggie sausage rolls - and that's just the men! Wink
