15Kim's Cardboard Cringe
Many people share common fears such as acrophobia, the fear of heights, ophidiophobia, the fear of snakes, claustrophobia, the fear of small spaces, and even mysophobia, the fear of germs. But Kim has her own special brand of fear. Starbuckscoffeesleeveophobia, if you didn't know, is the fear of hearing or
watching the cardboard-like sleeve that Starbucks provides on their cups of coffee slide off of the cup. Kim suffers from Starbuckscoffeesleeveophobia, and to deal with her fear, she has to leave the room when her assistant slides the sleeve off. Instead of simply requesting that the Starbucks barista not include a sleeve, Kim runs off so that she doesn't have to deal with the horror of the cardboard sleeve, also known as a paper zarf, cozy, or cup jacket. We're not saying that we judge Kim for this, but we'd be lying if we said that our eyes didn't roll just a bit after learning this.
