Stirring Sticks

I am a tad unimpressed by the current trend, in the hospitality sector, of using little, flat, wooden sticks for stirring beverages, whether it's tea or coffee.

These sticks are generally placed in a receptacle on the dining-table, with other condiments.

I assume that this practice saves hotels, cafes, bars and restaurants from the provision of real teaspoons and the necessity of having to clean them.

Personally I prefer real, traditional, metal spoons.

Wooden sticks are perhaps better suited to fast-food establishments, rather than hotels.

the reason these stirrers are so common is that great numbers of teaspoons are simply stolen by customers !

Isn't it asonishing that people feel the need to steal teaspoons?
