Where has Tall Gone?

It looks like Starbucks is rolling out new drive through menus that omit the tall size.  This is confusing customers as they are asking if they can still order the tall size.  The Consumerists wonders if this is a way for Starbucks to push people towards ordering the larger more expensive sizes.

For those of you not up on the Starbucks vernacular the sizes Tall, Grande and Venti conform to the small, medium and large sizes that you usually see when you are ordering a drink.  Something you may not be aware of is that Starbucks also offers a Short size for most drinks which is smaller and less expensive than the Tall size.

I would worry about this more, but I always order with "small", "medium" or "large". And if I am drinking coffee, I will never drink anything smaller than a large, anyway.
