Ok, a new day has dawned on IHateStarbucks.com.

So if you want to share your opinons, i.e. post to the site, go here. As always, if wish to rant or rave, send me an email:

|Mustang Mom you are so pathetic. You bitch and moan because YOU dont WANT to PAY for soy! You are a cheap ass for sure. The coffee place you visit for iced coffee in the morning...I'll bet, the coffee there is cheaper than Starbucks. And of course...the price on gas you spend to get there is more than you would pay for that soy anyway. So you see...stupid, you are the TYPICAL Starbucks customer, you want it all but dont want to pay for it.GOOD dont come, you cheap F***! May I help the next person?

|Myself and other employees who work at are lovely shit hole we call starbucks have decided to have little signs so we know when to make the drink decafe. Really simple, if we don't like you, then you arn't getting caffeine.
As for working there, I need the insurence while going to school. If I wasn't in school I would never put up with the place. and after working there for a few years...yea the coffee is really starting to suck and tast the same..

|Found this site this morning as I finally hit my limit with these coffee geeks. I was told by the typically morose employee this morning that she had to charge me extra for the soy because otherwise it goes to waste? Does that make sense? I am joyously going to read the postings but gosh, I'm glad there's a place to vent. The employees have an attitude always, the prices are unreal and generally, I'll drive out of my way to find some other source of iced coffee in the morning. I pass by 3 starbucks on my way to work (a whopping 4 miles) but I will certainly leave a lot earlier to avoid the evil coffee place!
Thanks for letting me vent this morning!!!!

|Alex : I know I have a shift supervisor who doesn't know what she is doing!!!!! However, it is not all her fault, we only have 3 people who close, and they want us to do way too much stuff at night to prepare for the morning people.

|Starbucks sucks! I can't believe anyone actually drinks that crap more than once! The best chain to get regular coffee at is White Castle, believe it or not! It is always fresh there. We have a great local coffee shop chain in Columbus Ohio called Cup O'Joe for anything fancier. Starsucks is trying to compete/drive them out of business by opening near or next to their locations, but everywhere there's a Cup O'Joe & Starsucks, the Cup O'Joe's is jumping & you could fire off a cannon without hitting anyone in the Starsucks!

|There was an article in The Oregonian last week about a woman who owns a coffee shop in Astoria, Oregon named Sambuck's. It seems that Starbucks has their panties in a wad and are filing suit to have the name changed because it's an infringement of their copyrighted name. Here's the truth however - the name Sambucks comes from the womans maiden name, Samantha Buck. Now this $2 billion corporation swoops down and insists that she change the name of her business. By the way, Starbucks doesn't even have a store in Astoria and nobody in that small town would confuse Sambucks with Starbucks. I for one will never step foot in another Starbucks and will instead use my power as a consumer to encourage others to do boycott the schmucks.

All I have to say is... We close at 12, and still never get out until 2:30am. This is ridiculous people." YOU APPARENTLY HAVE A SHIFT SUPERVISOR THAT DOES NOT KNOW WHAT HE/SHE IS DOING!

|"COFFEE" by Jackie Mason
You want coffee in a coffee shop, that's 60 cents. But at Starbucks, Cafe Latte: $3.50. Cafe Creamier: $4.50. Cafe Suisse:$9.50. For each French word, another four dollars. Why does a little cream in coffee make it worth $3.50?
Go into any coffee shop; they'll give you all the cream you want until you're blue in the face. Forty-million people are walking around in coffee shops with jars of cream: "Here's all the cream you want!" And it's still 60 cents. You know why? Because it's called "coffee." If it's Café Latte $4.50.
You want cinnamon in your coffee? Ask for cinnamon in a coffee shop; they'll give you all the cinnamon you want. Do they ask you for more money because it's cinnamon? It's the same price for cinnamon in your coffee as for coffee without cinnamon - 60 cents, that's it. But not in Starbucks. Over there, it's Cinnamonnier - $9.50.
You want a refill in a regular coffee shop, they'll give you all the refills you want until you drop dead. You can come in when you're 27 and keep drinking coffee until you're 98. And they'll start begging you: "Here, you want more coffee, you want more, you want more?"
Do you know that you can't get a refill at Starbucks? A refill is a dollar fifty. Two refills, $4.50. Three refills, $19.50. So, for four cups of coffee -- $35.00 And it's burnt coffee. It's burnt coffee at Starbucks, let's be honest about it. If you get burnt coffee in a coffee shop, you call a cop. You say, "It's the bottom of the pot. I don't drink from the bottom of the pot. But when it's burnt at Starbucks, they say, "Oh, it's a blend. It's a blend. It's a special bean from Argentina...". The bean is in your head.
And there are no chairs in those Starbucks. Instead, they have these high stools. You ever see these stools? You haven't been on a chair that high since you were two. Seventy-three year old Jews are climbing and climbing to get to the top of the chair. And when they get to the top, they can't even drink the coffee because there's 12 people around one little table, and everybody's saying, "Excuse me, excuse me, excuse me, excuse me..... Then they can't get off the chair. Old Jews are begging Gentiles, "Mister, could you get me off this?"
Do you remember what a cafeteria was? In poor neighborhoods all over this country, they went to a cafeteria because there were no waiters and no service. And so poor people could save money on a tip. Cafeterias didn't have regular tables or chairs either. They gave coffee to you in a cardboard cup. So because of that you paid less for the coffee. You got less, so you paid less. It's all the same at Starbucks - no chairs, no service, a cardboard cup for your coffee -- except in Starbucks, the less you get, the more it costs. By the time they give you nothing, it's worth four times as much. Am I exaggerating?
Did you ever try to buy a cookie in Starbucks? Buy a cookie in a regular coffee shop. You can tear down a building with that cookie. And the whole cookie is 60 cents. At Starbucks, you're going to have to hire a detective to find that cookie, and it's $9.50. And you can't put butter on it because they want extra.
Do you know that if you buy a bagel, you pay extra for cream cheese in Starbucks? Cream cheese, another 60 cents. A knife to put it on, 32 cents. If it reaches the bagel, 48 cents. That bagel costs you $3.12.
And they don't give you the butter or the cream cheese. They don't give it to you, they tell you where it is. "Oh, you want butter? It's over there. Cream cheese? Over here. Sugar? Sugar is here." Now you become your own waiter. You walk around with a tray. "I'll take the cookie. Where's the butter? The butter's here. Where's the cream cheese? The cream cheese is there."
You walked around for an hour and a half selecting items, and then the guy at the cash register has a glass in front of him that says "Tips." You're waiting on tables for an hour, and you owe him money. Then there's a sign that says please clean it up when you're finished. They don't give
you a waiter or a busboy. Now you've become the janitor. Now you have to start cleaning up the place. Old Jews are walking around cleaning up Starbucks. "Oh, he's got dirt too? Wait, I'll clean this up." They clean up the place for an hour and a half.
If I said to you, "I have a great idea for a business. I'll open a whole new type of a coffee shop. Instead of 60 cents for coffee I'll charge $2.50, $3.50, $4.50, and $5.50. Not only that, I'll have no tables, no chairs, no water, no busboy, and you'll clean it up for 20 minutes after you're finished." Would you say to me, "That's the greatest idea for a business I ever heard! We can open a chain of these all over the world!" No, you would put me right into a sanitarium. Starbucks can only get away with it because they have French titles for everything,. And I say this with the highest respect, because I don't like to talk about people.
