« He wants to transfer to a Starbucks store that sells beer and wine. Any advice? |
| Starbucks customers in India wait 20 minutes or more to get into a crowded store »
Glass was showering down from a construction site, and yet one man insisted he stop by the nearby Starbucks. A cop said no. The man pleaded: "It’s still open and I need a pumpkin latte."
“No, sir. You can’t go that way,” the cop replied. "It’s too dangerous!"
The Forbes writer says of the man denied his Starbucks: "And then he flashed it, in all its glory: The Starbucks Sourpuss. He was denied his fix and his face said it all."

I wish my problems could be as simple as this. If a guys biggest problem in life is not getting his coffee..ask him if he wants to trade. We had no power for 2 days, so our SB was closed. Some employes lost homes snd power, yet when we opened, travel issues forced us to open late. Some of these elitist idiots actually complained UNBELIEVABLE.

The fact that that guy thinks he NEEDS a pumpkin spice latte says it all - humanity has failed itself.

A better comment on humanity might be why was Starbucks open in the first place? As a former "partner" I worked in lots of bad weather. While we did close early for storms, we were open a longer than we should have been. The main criteria seemed to be how many customers were still coming in.

I worked in a double-sided drive-through for quite some time, and we worked the better part of a blizzard, walking out into the snow to get to the cars and back. I wore 2 coats, a pair of fingerless gloves, a huge scarf and a hat, and was chastised multiple times for "snotting" on my scarf as I huffed through the snow to the vehicle.
