Drip...drip...drip

Am I the only person who can't stand the fact that the cup/covers
used by Tim Horton's are horribly designed and have this drip
feature built in for the sole purpose of driving me insane?

Go buy a cup of Tim Horton's coffee. While carrying your cup
of coffee, if you've moved ever so slightly, the coffee will start
to drip somewhere beneath the lid. I wipe it off hoping it's just
an aberration but a few seconds later, there it is again.

Tim Horton's sells the most coffee in Canada. They are making
a fortune. Is it too much to ask that they get rid of those shitty
lids and use ones that don't drip all over my car's console or
all over my desk??

My guess is the problem is a combination of a poor lid design
and the curled lip of the cup itself. If you have sloshed the
coffee around in the cup, the coffee hits the lid and hangs there,
eventually finding it's way to the edge (it it hasn't dripped back
into the cup). Somehow the curled edge of the cup doesn't form
a very good seal with the lid and the coffee finds it way between
the lip and cup's edge, and you have your drip.

If you've experienced the drip, please add a comment and
hopefully we'll initiate some change.
