Tall

This morning I brewed up and poured myself a nice, big, piping-hot cup of coffee, and left it on the TV stand at home. Dammit. So I went to Starbucks after my first class, and got a nasty look from the girl working there when I asked for "a small cup of coffee."

"It's fucking 'tall,' asshole!" she said. At least, that's what I assume she said to herself. Gimme a break.

Yeah, how does the shortest cup size of the three get labeled tall? It's chodish shape makes it look like a midget cup anyway.

Seriously, what's up with the naming of the sizes of coffee cups? There's no way a "tall" is tall. It looks pretty short to me! I'm not usually a coffee drinker but recently I've been checking out the coffee shops in my town (there aren't many), and was rather amused by the labeling of sizes. "Venti"?
