Let’s Boycott EVERYTHING

OhMyGod.  YES. We obviously need to boycott things we know nothing about. Damn Starbucks and their need to help out other countries that sell their coffee.  Screw the damn Veterans and homeless GLOBALLY.

So let me get this straight, you want to boycott a company and demand that they hire homeless and Veterans at the same time. So, in the long run, enough people boycott, Starbucks starts laying off and now everyone is out of a job? I cant even comprehend the stupid ass logic in that mess.

Also, I’m not sure everyone understands the hiring process and what exactly it takes to get a job at Starbucks, (or any other damn food service industry that’s hiring, BTW).

The first step is to apply. Yep. It’s that simple. So crazy, right?  Who knew? “What?? I can get a job interview if I apply??”.  But its this very first step that confounds people. You see you cant get a job if you don’t apply for it. Silly, I know, but companies aren’t running around the streets looking for veterans or homeless who may or may not want a job.

However if veterans want a job at Starbucks, they have to apply, just like everyone else.  Do you think that they should let anyone come through the front door, say “I’m a Vet” and BOOM, automatic job? On the plus side to all of this is that Starbucks treats it Veteran partners really well. But no one wants to hear that, they just want to hate and boycott.

It was announced that Howard Schultz was stepping down. He announced that in December. Of course the same people who boycotted think they made a difference. Cute. No. Also when are you going to realize that your boycotts of everything are welcomed by the rest of us.

Not sure if anyone caught that the 10,000 were to be hired GLOBALLY. Do we have an overabundance of American homeless and Veterans abroad somewhere that we are unaware of? Or is it just that people feel the need to be self righteous about shit.

I stay away from those people.

 

 

 

 

 

Did. You. Just. Roll. Your. Eyes. At. Me?

We now live in an age where social media rules and people like to be nasty behind a keyboard. Example…me, I’m writing a sarcastic blog because people irritate me.

Anywayihatepeople, sometimes people forget they aren’t behind their keyboard and are just rude to your face. OR maybe they do realize it and are just nasty anyway. Doesn’t really matter because rude is rude, no matter the reason.

As many of you know, smacking rude people is unacceptable behavior and I would get fired.  And I cannot control my WTF face when people get ugly. I try but honestly there is no hiding it.

Lately people have been rolling their eyes at me. Really? If I wont take that shit from my child what makes you think I’m going to tolerate it from you rude people. Also, you better have a damn good reason to roll those eyes at me. Let me check…Ohhhhh, nope. Your reasons are ridiculous.

We’re busy in the morning. The busiest store in our immediate area. Drive thru constantly out to the street, lines inside are always long.  We have 2 ovens and 3 Espresso machines. We do things in order received. So when a man rudely interrupts me while I’m making a drink to “just throw a sandwich in the oven for him”, sorry buddy, aint happening. But, THANKS for the nasty attitude and eye roll.

I, too, think you are so special, however, my food person doesn’t understand your specialness and I would totally get yelled at for putting you in as priority over the people who have been waiting 10 minutes.  Please know I cherish every inch of your awesomeness, but right now you’re a douche so get out of my face.

I also understand that people spend a lot of money on their coffee, so yes I want to get your drink correct. I’m not messing it up on purpose. However, when one of your requests is “extra hot”, then you add cold creamer to it, the coldness of the creamer brings down the temperature.

So, awful lady in drive thru, when I hand you your coffee and you state “I can tell you right now this isn’t extra hot”, I offered to make you a new one.  Instead you chose to roll your eyes at me in disgust. Ok, lets do this….let me pour this in your lap and you can tell me if its hot enough.

Here’s a tip for you “extra hot-ers” out there. We push a button on the machine for an extra hot temp. I, personally, am not in the back with a kettle filling all the cups with extra hot water. Perhaps our thermometer is broken and we are unaware. But being an asshole about it just makes you look mean and we remember you for the next time you come in.

Think on that for a while.
