Bacterial Iced Coffee Anyone?

I don't know what to rant about first with this report.
There are so many things wrong with coffee shops, in my opinion, that this comes as no great surprise.

Why do people pay so much for a hot coffee drink with a stupid made up name? It is so expensive that other things are being pegged against it as in "For the price of a cup of coffee you can have....."
Why do people then have it cold and iced, you can definitely bring cold coffee from home.
Caffeine is bad for us even in low doses. My nervous system needs no stimulation, so why is it so popular? Addiction is the answer.
The people who work in these coffee outlets are not all necessarily there because they care about what they do and don't have to be very bright.

I have visited or worked in a number of toilets over the years and it never ceases to horrify me how many people don't wash their hands before they leave and happily grab the filthy door handle whether they washed or not.
The bacteria they carry away ends up on keyboards, tills, cutlery, chairs, desks, pens, etc.
The bare minimum in a food establishment should be an alcohol rub hand gel dispenser behind the counter.
