Used to be that the default "joke" job was "flipping burgers at McDonalds".
Nowadays it's "being a barista at Starbucks".
I suppose that change means something but damned if I know what.

Starbucks is for college grads who can't do better.
Sadly, that is not solely restricted to the US. Friends of the family who have been to Taiwan recently tell me that coffee shops are everywhere now, both Starbucks and local chains/independent establishments.* The running joke (Prompted by the less than energetic state of Taiwan's economy over the last few years.) is that all the college graduates who are unable to find jobs are now opening coffee shops - which at least indicates some hopes about entrepreneurial spirit.
*Yes, it appears that while tea is still commonly drank, coffee is now the dominant drink...In an Asian country.
