    Wanna annoy a Starbucks employee?

    When you go in and they ask you if you've tried their new instant, tell them the Folgers instant tastes better. Actually had a barista at a local Starbucks give me the stinkeye when I told him I preferred Nescafe and Folgers to Howard Schultz's latest failure.

    I'd be careful around people with access to hot liquids!

    Starbucks is second only in hype to Global Warming! I think their coffee is horrible and way overpriced. Give me Kwik-Trip for $1.29 any day!

    The guy I eat lunch with will go into a Starbucks and sweet-talk the women into giving him a complementary coffee because the last one "tasted funny" - About half of the time they will do it, even though he's been in there before, because he's "such a good customer". LOL

    Admittedly, even with employee benefits and business costs, Starbucks makes a tidy profit on every cup sold.

    I like my local Starbucks shop and the baristas are fun to banter with. But all I will buy is drip. Everything is way too much.

    Besides, I need to drink the free coffee at work. I have money to save, guns to feed.
