Here's Your Nickel Back
Say what you will about Starbucks (and I know I have) their wi-fi service is both generous and ample. Chad Kroeger, rock star extraordinaire, was able to stay alive as a starving artist by working for Starbucks, hence the name 'Nickelback'. Every time a customer would receive their change, he would say "here's your nickel back". I love those stories, and I'm so proud of those boys for making it big. Whether you like their music or not, go to Hanna, Alberta and see how small it is. They had to have had a community of people supporting them to not only make it in show business, but to win Grammys and sell millions of albums. I was waiting at the Roxy lineup for a beer when he started chatting with me, several years ago. He's a nice guy, and reading some interviews on him, a checkered past of several bad-ass activities has gone in his favour. You have to bend some rules in life to get what you really want.
