Starbucks Customers: Addicts or Assholes?

Starbucks Coffee

When it comes to coffee, I love it. Not just for the caffeine but for the taste. I love coffee so much I drink a ton of it whenever I can — I even enjoy coffee-flavored items such as ice cream, candy, and alcoholic beverages. Needless to say I’m also a big fan of the wonderful coffee selection at Starbucks. I’ve been noticing though that the people ordering in front of me while I stand is line are up tight, bitchy and just plain rude most of the time. Is it because they’re really Starbucks addicts or maybe it’s because they’re paying between $4.00 and $7.00 for one cup of coffee?

I have a feeling that buying from the expensive coffee house gives middle-class people a reason to be snobby and better than everyone else. Maybe it’s just me but how do you take your coffee? And when it’s not 100% absolutely perfect, do you turn into a 5-year-old like some of these people I’ve seen when they accidentally get too much cream?

    You might want to think about what’s comming out of your cars tailpipe. And may I remind you that they put ashtray on the tables outside for smokers If you don’t like smoke then don’t sit in a smoking area.

    Screw these f,,king people, just got a cup of java
    At Starbucks and sat down outside to have a smoke , you should have seen the look on the faces of these assholes, like the world would end. One fat assed bitch got up and gave me a dirty look, I would think that extra weight she’s toting around on her fat ass would kill her a lot faster that the smell of a cigarette. These are the same asshole that used to put baby on board stickers on their fucking SUVs. While they tool around to the mall at 15 mpg.

      I can’t say I disagree with those people. I would get up and move too if my life was put in danger by your second hand smoke. That’s why I’m glad to live in a state where it’s illegal to smoke in public stores, bars, restaurants, etc.

    On a blazing hot Florida day, their Green Tea Lemonade is absolutely wonderful. It really hits the spot and is 1/2 (or cheaper) the cost of my normal over-the-top coffee.

    I actually do not drink any coffee except for that $7-per-cup frappuccino crap that after adding all that whipped cream, nuts, and flavoring, the only coffee left is what you taste when sucking on the ice cubes after its all gone (for those of you that know what I’m talking about, more power to you. The rest of you, piss off)
