If it bothers you, don’t go there

I keep reading about Hillbilly Hotties espresso being a public nuisance. I drive by several times a week and have never been bothered. I know by the name that there are probably some hotties working there who are scantily clad so I don’t take my kids because it wouldn’t be appropriate. Just as I wouldn’t take them to an R- or X-rated movie which are both perfectly legal.

My gut tells me that people who don’t approve of sexy girls purposely put themselves in an uncomfortable position by driving up to the order window along with their kids so they have something to complain about. Maybe they belong to a group who believe their moral compass is superior to others. Maybe they are not attractive and their jealousy makes them catty.

Whatever the reason, YOU are the one being a nuisance. Please stop it. The espresso stand on the next block may be the one you should visit.
