    I discussed this with another MCNGP recently, but the biggest thing that
    I'm about to c/p is my bulletin from MySpace. It apparently got enough
    hype that the District Manager got to read it. However, that's exactly
    what I wanted. Here we go. Unminge all the words and you'll see the
    original post.

    ***

    Fsuk Starbucks. It's quite simple. I need not go into extravagant
    details, but FSUK STARBUCKS. First off, you're a gddmn moron if you're
    going to pay 4.18 for a gddmn cup of fsuking burnt-a$$ coffee that I
    most likely re-steamed the milk for about 5 times already (burnt milk
    curdles, mind you) and *forgot* to calibrate the espresso machine
    ....which makes your espresso taste even more so like a$$h0le in a cup. I
    could use 4.18 to go buy a nice meal from Wal-Mart and feed at LEAST 3
    people. Fsuking idiots.

    Since I was fortunate enough to become "Benefits Specialist", the best
    way I can see screwing over the company other than announcing my
    employment coming to an end when I get my weekly mark out, since my
    Aetna Health Insurance kicked in about 50 minutes ago and last until
    December 31st, is to leave with a nice "Thanks, and you have a fsuking
    wonderful time getting screwed on your hours and trying to make a living
    for yourself at a hell-hole like this where your store manager is only
    concerned about his Christmas Bonus"...something like that is a nice
    warm touch right where you want to go postal on a b!tch and rip their
    fsuking lungs out and feed it to a group of ravenous hyenas.

    As I said - FUSK STARBUCKS. Fusk this bull$h!t "Coffee Master" status,
    Fsuk Curtis Atwood, and Fsuk Blake for trying to cut our hours at one of
    the most crucial times of the year for people's families and their
    children's well-being. Its best referred to from an old tale called "A
    Christmas Carol" where Tiny Tim needs a new crutch and Bob Kratchet
    needs to feed his family. Well, gddmnit, I have fsuking bills to pay and
    mouths to feed and 23 hours at 7.75 a fsuking hour is not going to cut
    it, especially when Curtis KNOWS I need at LEAST 30 hours to survive and
    be uncomfortable but pay bills.

    FSUK STARBUCKS AND WHEN I GO ASK THE DUDE NEXT DOOR WHY HE'S GOT THE
    "DON'T BUY FROM STARBUCKS" SIGN IN HIS WINDOW, I'LL LET YOU KNOW
    WHY....EVERYONE EVERY MOTHERFSUKING PERSON THAT COMES THROUGH DRIVE-THRU
    IS DYING TO KNOW.

    Fsuk Starbucks.

    ***

    The post was later asked to be removed by someone very close to me as
    the above information does tell the "new hires" that they're making WAY
    less than what even I was making at sweat shop labor style. It's
    typical for a new company to move into your area and then pay higher to
    get staffing and then lower the rates. We were asked not to discuss it,
    but I never signed anything saying I couldn't.

    After the post was removed, I posted something else. Here that is.

    ***

    With much reluctance and apprehension, I've removed the post regarding
    my former employment. As far as I'm concerned, only the truth was stated
    and that defamation of character is not an issue. More so, MY 1st
    Amendment Rights for "Freedom of speech" have been violated by being
    asked to remove this post since I have no affiliation with the company
    as Alabama is an "At-Will Employment State" and from my knowledge of the
    Internet, it is not governed by anything but the DMCA, the GNU GPL, and
    the Internet Laws passed in 1996 by Bill Clinton to remove invasive
    privacy measures being enforced by various agencies within the
    government. Do not think for one second that I take this lightly and it
    is not every day that you have a business entrepreneur such as myself
    with the know-how to a lead business larger than the store I have left
    not know how to pull certain strings and piss people off. Maybe that's
    why some of you think I'm so "bossy". Fine, keep your opinion to your
    MySpace page and not try and create real-life drama.

    After all of that is said, all I will state is that I hold true to
    everything that I have said (if you read it, good; if you didn't, oh
    well), my opinion stays the same, I've removed the people on my friends
    list that I believe would create drama within the company and pass this
    information directly to the source of which I received this knowledge (I
    know who you are and I hope that you don't ever speak to me), and I hope
    that everyone within the company enjoys a happy holiday season from the
    gift of hours that I have left a gap to fill.

    ***

    You ask, why the hell would you post this again? Well, quite simple. I
    have the right to say whatever I want so long as it doesn't infringe
    upon the rights of others. NNTP seems to get out there and make itself
    global. And by no means am I telling any of you to not drink Starbucks,
    -backwards is Skcubrats mind you- but if you do then we should chat.

    When all is said and done, I'll not be posting anything else on MySpace.
    It will only serve as a placeholder for my website that I'm putting up,
    http://www.turkreno.com. If you want to see work so far, contact me
    directly because I don't want bots scanning that page just yet to map
    stuff.

    <unfortunately it had to be snipped>

    I worked for a competitor of theirs and have always
    said that their product is "crap in cup" and not just
    because of who I worked for. After getting trained
    on how to make a good "cup of joe" and getting the details
    on how FSUKING STARBUCKS makes their crap
    I knew they had to have other business practices
    that sucked raw buttermilk.

    A] Why the heck would you take it down?

    2] They are paying people LESS than $7.75hr to work for them?

    I am amazed....

    People where you are must tip better than they do here?

    Oh, and:

    III] When did "That and a quarter will get ya a cuppa coffee"
    morph into "That and a sawbuck will get ya a latte."

    $7.75?? Is that what minimum wage is where you are?

    The waitstaff in the restaurants and bars here get $2.15/hr (because they
    get tips).

    Back in 1999 I remember a buddy of mine, back home, saying his wife
    got $3.20 an hour for waitressing in some quite fancy restaurant. The
    joint never had a problem hiring so called experienced staff because,
    with tips, she could make around $150 a night.

    This is how a trade works, waitresses make their money in tips. Sure
    customers at the likes of starbucks etc, are less likely to tip nine
    percent, but heck no one forces people to work there.

    Hence my remark about people tipping more than they do here. I have a
    friend that works in an espresso bar that gets $10 an hour plus tips.

    Thing is, folks around here apparently do not tip baristas very well, and
    as a result, if they want someone to work for them, they have to pay a tad
    more up front. By the same token, people that wait tables in nice
    restaurants around here do very well indeed in tips. I used to date a
    redhead that waitressed in one of the old Surf & Turf places that were so
    popular a few years ago, that regularly took home $150 -$250 per nite in
    tips.

    But then, she looked great in that little short skirt and apron outfit.

    I used to date a
    sounds like good money, although I expect she was only getting that
    amount in tips 'cos people knew she was dating an MCNGP member ;-)

    It isn't where they get them, it is how they abuse
    them after they get them.

    They claim they have their own farms. So does lowdes, but we all know that
    his $h!t comes from New York City, not El Paso, TX.

    Exactly. And if you roast a bean long enough, which my grandmother told me
    a story about when she was just a small kid that they'd actually pan-make
    coffee like you would popcorn, it will build up a concentration of certain
    chemicals that can either be good or bad for you. Starbucks just happens
    to have "state-of-the-art" pressure cookers that consistently make the
    actual coffee beans. When it gets to the store where you guys drink it, it
    may taste different because of shelflife, because of some dumba$$ barista
    letting it be exposed to air too long, or because they didn't calibrate the
    machines. There are many reasons and it will still taste burnt either way.

    To be more specific, I live with another Starbucks employee.
    Yep. NOW they're paying people $6.75 to work for them. As I said, they
    decrease the rate when they establish enough employees for that market.
    You guys must be confused, that is a retail job that also entails
    selling coffee. Its not a restaurant. Therefore, it is big-business.
    About 2001. Most people just didn't realize it when Starbucks launched
    about 10,000 stores that year.
