Default Starbucks Questions

Since the McD'* associate is divulging McDonalds info, I've decided to answer any Starbucks questions with my compendium of Starbucks knowledge.

There'* a lady that frequents my store and orders a "grande soy half-decaf 190 degree 4 pump sugar free vanilla 2 pump sugar free hazelnut 2" extra thick foam latte." Most everyone that works there knows the drink already so I just write her name on the cup. I call it the Tracy.

That'* funny.
I heard a bas story about Starbucks but not sure if it was true.
I hear a soldier in Iraq wrote to Starbucks to see what it would cost to have them send him some coffee. They wrote back and said they wouldn't do it because they won't support the war.
Like I said, not sure if it'* true. My bro-in-law heard about it on the radio.

I'm not sure about that, it'* probably made up to create anti-Starbucks sentiment. While Starbucks tends to be a pretty liberal corporation, we stay neutral in social and religious issues. We donate to churches for non-profit non-denominational purposes. Every other morning the local church comes in and picks up day-old pastries and uses them to help the needy, regardless of religion. On the other days, the food bank comes and picks it up. I'm sure that if the person were going to pay for the coffee, we would have sent it to them in Iraq, just as we would have sent it anywhere else.

I didn't want to believe it was true. I can see someone or some company not wanting to support the war, but I can't imagine anyone not supporting the troops themselves.
But don't ell my, it'* nice having an excuse for not buying her $3.00+ frigin cups of coffee.

it sounds like starbucks didnt want to support or not support the war, because it seems like they dont want to potentially lose any anti-war customers. like chromius said they wanted to stay neutral.

Yuppy bastards...

If you don't like coffe, it'* a lot easier to not drink it than spend 20 minutes ordering someone to mix crap into it until it doesn't taste like coffee anymore. Buy a freakin' pop already!! Especially if there'* someone like me in line behind you who just might rip your throat out if I don't get my mud fix soon....
