It's hard to believe that someone would be sooooo petty as to relocate an employee for such a reason.

The world is a far better place if I'm drinking Starbucks coffee. At least that's what my co-workers tell me.

You wanna boycott Starbucks, do it 'cause of their crappy burnt coffee, not because you read something on the Internet that you admit you "have no idea" is true.
Amen to that!

Though if there's any truth to the allegations, and the company is choosing to support the manager...

But I can't boycott a place I would never frequent!!

I emailed them and included a link to the article. It'd be nice if they realized this is circulating a large audience and hurting their image. All of you should do the same.

I just love how many of the same people that spout "support your LBS" with their last breath often frequent a strongarm monopoly like Starbucks who muscle out Ma and Pa coffee shops on a regular basis.Capitalism at it's finest :madman:

The woman is probably a fat b!tch who doesn't see the light. I can't stand ignorant idiots like her, especially when they are in a position to influence others like that. I hope she gets fired. On the other hand, Starbuck's stock is great, should I sell it now?:rolleyes:

I love how everyone concludes that the story is true without hearing the other side. It is also entirely possible that he was doing a crappy job, knew he was going to be transfered, and came up with this story of what happened ex post facto in an effort to not get moved, or get moved back.

Even assuming it is true, that doesn't represent the policy of the corporation, just one manager. Like others said, if you are going to boycott Starbucks, do it because they are like McDonalds, a symbol of how far you can go with a crappy product.

"Everyone" did not conclude the story is true. Many disputed the truth of the story.

This was discussed on RBR as well. The general consensus seemed to be that there is far more to the story than what is printed.

Also, there are (have been) far better reasons to not go to Starbucks than this.

Starbucks has crappy coffee. I'm not above drinking it, though. They are like Dennys or McDonalds - ubiquitous - they're everywhere and you know what you'll be getting. Sometimes I romanticize gas station coffee when I'm on the road - until I actually drink it. Then Starbucks seems wonderful. Peets is where I prefer to spend my money.
