Civil Disobedience Against our Corporate Overlords!

Yesterday, a co-worker of mine gave me a card that is good for one free iced coffee every wednesday in June. I’m not a fan of Starbucks because 1) they are destroying the independent coffeehouses with their sinister, locust-like swarm tactics, and 2) because their coffee is largely awful. But I found a way to use their own tactics against them…

Since Starbucks are EVERYWHERE, there are two stores on my 10 minute drive to work. I GOT 2 ICED COFFEES TODAY!!! BWA-HA-HA! Suck it, Starbucks!

That’s what you get when you mess with the little guy!

    You are such a dork. Still kind of funny.

  2. At the same time Starbucks is one of the only corporations to offer health insurance to non full time employees. The founder went without for a long time and doesn’t believe anyone working for him should have to.

    This is one of those ‘remember things are more complicated’ deals. Yeah, there are a million Starbucks everywhere, but like… if people vote with their wallets. Its never the case of there being Starbucks Enforcers on the street making you go in and get your coffee there at gunpoint.

    On the other hand, yeah, their coffee is bad. Really bad.

  3. Why didn’t you share an iced coffee with your girlfriend?

  4. Jayson,

    Starbucks coffee is terrible, yet it is hugely popular. That can only mean one thing: subliminal advertising amd mind control. OK, that’s two things, but you HAVE to admit that Starbucks, the Bavarian Illuminati, the face on Mars, The JFK assassination, AND the Loch Ness Monster are connected in some insidious way. I carry a tin foil hat that I put on everytime I walk past a Starbucks.

    On a related note, starting in two weeks, Starbucks on the Strip is doing Karaoke Sundays. I might go.

  5. Jay, you forget that the Masons are behind everything. I bet dollars to donuts that Starbucks founder is a Mason.

    Of course, there is the shadowy Pentavorate, mentioned in So I married an Axe Murderer. If true, they take the cake for insidiousness.

    Two food-related metaphors in one comment, could be a record.
