Starbucks, Starfucks, Starsucks
To prime this story properly you must be aware that I live in the Seattle area, COFFEE CAPITAL OF THE KNOWN FUCKING UNIVERSE!!! There is a Starbucks every 50 fucking feet!!! Between each of those is a regional vendor, Bikini Baristas, Bigfoot Java, Cool Bean etc. Between each regional vendor is a privately owned (local) espresso stand...THEY ARE FUCKING EVERYWHERE!!! We Seattleites take our coffee very seriously.
I work outside, I get extremely filthy but I get paid well so...who really cares right? Anywhoo, I got off work and met my oldest daughter at the Starbucks nearest my work. We sat and chatted while I ate some Taco Bell then we had coffee, very $EXPENSIVE$ coffee. My daughter was dressed in grubbies after helping her grandmother do some really dirty housework. After finishing our coffee we stepped out front so I could have a cigarette, it was snowing lightly. I had to go to the bathroom before we took off so my daughter waited inside the store. I come back from the restroom and my daughter is standing by the front door with the manager who was swinging her keys around LOUDLY and holding the door open for us to leave. I had not noticed it was 5 minutes after their closing time. We thanked the manager for her patience and started to walk away. We heard the following from the manager..."I hope you guys have someplace warm and dry to go tonight."
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? DID WE JUST HEAR HER CORRECTLY? THAT FUCKING BITCH!!!
I called the next day and complained to their corporate headquarters. They apologized profusely and sent me a bunch of free coffee tickets. I have since been to the same location twice. Both times I waited for over 15 minutes for my coffee. Their entire crew is extremely arrogant and snotty as fuck. (You can tell by the way they treat me when I'm in my dirty work clothes.)
I WILL NO LONGER GIVE THEM MY $$$ TO BE TREATED LIKE CRAP!!!
