Dear Starbucks,

Please hear our cries! Must you introduce the Pumpkin Spice Latte giving us all false hopes of cooler weather? It's not fair to do this to us innocent folks in the south. It's hot, we are sweating from every single crevice. We can't even attend outside weddings in September anymore. Why? It's too freaking hot. Have you ever heard of HUMIDITY?

Here we are, sweating with our AC blaring full blast and you feel the need to release the Pumpkin Spice Latte in August? August 27th to be exact. This is not okay. I understand you need to be the first, and for marketing purposes, you gotta make the sale, but I am asking, no I am begging you to stop this madness.

Let the Popeye's Chicken Sandwich have its time in the sun. Meanwhile, you should stay tucked away in until you see the temperatures in the 70's. We need scarves and our basic B attire before we enjoy that first sip of pumpkin spice. PLEASE!

Love,

The South.
