Seriously though, poor guy
Honestly I feel bad for the workers of places where this stuff happens. The H&M in South Africa is a good example of that.
@Good Ol Days, yeah but fvck south africa. They're on their way to having their own hollacaust.
@BlazingBowman, I'm imagining some sort of ethnic cleansing led by Gwen Stefani
I really wish that employee and any others just say eat a dick and fûck off. I don’t get why people take shît from these black racists and piece of garbage fake feminists.
@FoodOverPeople, I feel like it's harder to not do anything but I feel like if he did and just served their coffee with a smile they would just leave. Then again this is coming from a guy who automatically assumes anyone who gets fussy when I refuse their coupon has an IQ of a disabled mule.
@FoodOverPeople, it's because the guy who said the customer is always right was a terrible speaker and should have kept his mouth shut
Starbucks made the worst possible mistake, they conceded to the idea that this was racially-motivated when it quite clearly was not. Now the identitarian left is going to abuse that concession relentlessly.
@Doctor Krieger, you'd think people would learn by now that you deal with these leftists the same way you would terrorists - don't negotiate or give in to their demands
@Kangaroo Jacked, and never, ever apologize. They’ll just sense the blood in the water and come at you even harder.
Why would you endure that for $7.25? You’re worth a hell of a lot more than that. Plus it was a female manager who called the police on them, why yell at employees who weren’t involved? That’s just stupid and disrespectful to people trying to work their 9-5
@BiteMyShinyMetalA55, explain that to pissed off liberals who can’t see that
@BiteMyShinyMetalA55, because people love getting excessively angry at things they disagree with. Remember when people were angrily protesting because Starbucks had blank red cups for Christmas, and used the horrific hate slur of “happy holidays”?
@YUNoJump, Starbucks is basically the Batman of American corporations. People heap shît on it unnecessarily for things that aren’t even necessarily the company’s fault at large, or things that just don’t matter, but once the world turns cold and dark again, they all go cowering back to the warm embrace of their Pumpkin Spice Bullshît.
@Berntley, For the record, I think what happened with those two men was pretty disgusting, and I’m all for putting modern day racism under a microscope. A lot of people still deny that racism is even a thing anymore, but it’s still a pretty big goddamn problem. However, this incident is not reflective of company standards, and the only employees who should be held accountable are the ones who incited this incident in the first place.
@BiteMyShinyMetalA55, also for the record I work at a Starbucks as a barista in the Chicago area (suburbs not the actual city) and I make $11.27 an hour, so if I get to stand there getting yelled at without having to make any drinks I'm not that mad about it
@BiteMyShinyMetalA55, how do you know they’re worth more?
@Good Ol Days, I'm tired of people blaming things that upset them on some group they dislike. There is no evidence that the protesters are liberal. Nor is there any evidence liberals support this. Yes, it is unfair to this worker. On the other hand, it was unfair to the guys who got arrested for doing nothing. Life can be unfair. No need to crucify those you dislike with nonsense logic.
@occasionalmutant, I will bet money that the majority of the people were very liberal. I’m not saying what happened to those men was justified. I completely disagree with that, I’m not putting the blame towards that group either I’m just saying that the people usually protesting that are liberal
@occasionalmutant, guy, there's overwhelming evidence that these protestors belong to the identitarian left. The entire premise of the protest is identitarianism, for fück's sake!
Also, these two men got arrested for behaving belligerently towards officers and refusing to leave after having tresspassed. That's not "nothing" and it's more than fair.
@BiteMyShinyMetalA55, it's because it's easier to call all starbucks staff racist rather than find the actual racists
@ShiaSurprise, right either way I'm getting paid lol.
@Berntley, i think what youre forgetting is that it inherently isnt a big issue anymore. I say this because ive looked at the issue with it now and the way it was in the 50s. If anything its almost a joke how people dont admit its now a minimal issue. I say this because the only time race is brought in is when the media wants to sensationalise the news and make it worse than what it was. In the 50s jobs wouldnt hire you if you were black. Now jobs are afraid not to hire someone because they are black even if they arent qualified because they will be vilified in the media. Im not sayong racism doesnt exist but instead of it being 2000/4000 people who are racist its more like 2/4000 people are racist these days. You cant claim its still a major issue when a small tiny minority of people are too moronic to learn. And you cant teach an idiot that doesnt want to learn. This issue is blown out of proportion by mislead or overall lies sprouted by the media because they cant research enough
@Berntley, and jumped the gun leading to every person who cant objectively look at the situation to jump up and yell in ager without taking a moment to consider the fact that myabe its not racially modivated or even better maybe the face you are yelling at isnt involved. All they do is turn more people to the opposite way of thinking. You want racism to end? Stop forcing it to resurge by pissing off someone who did nothing wrong and turning them that way. Im white and ive been turned down from jobs because im white, and the company wants to hire more blavks or latinos so they dont seem to racial segregating there work force or that they are racially motivates in there hiring division. Its so aßß backwards from what people claim its a joke and not even a funny one.
Wasn’t the manager that threw them out black too? I thought black people say black people can’t be rascist?
I work at a Starbucks in Ferguson Missouri and I'm a white female so I can say I have been hearing a lot of shjt like this. However baristas get paid $9.50(which isn't much better). Every single customer says "giggle" you're not going to call the cops on me right?
@MagnumSizedDong, did you already go through the mandatory racial sensitivity training and if so, what was that like?
@I Are Lebo, no it's not for another month. I'm sure it's going to be super emotional. I'm just worried a crazy but job is going to find out where we are all gathering and blow the place up.
@MagnumSizedDong, Respond with this: "No, I have my own handcuffs."
@CynicalSir, hah no I always bring them with me if you know what I mean (;
@MagnumSizedDong, I’m more worried about what the training is going to do to you than what the customers will.
It seems like your superiors are even more crazy than your customers.
Maybe I don't know what I'm missing, but I've never gotten anything from Starbucks/similar places and I don't plan to
@mrGrizzIes, Starbucks is terrible anyways. You might as well get some gas station coffee.
@Doctor Krieger, its ok if you want a fancy overpriced drink. I think Dunkin Doughnuts is better
But Starbucks burns its coffee
So if you just want regular coffee, gas station is usually way better
Though Carls Jr. Is actually pretty good coffee
@Doctor Krieger, Speedway is fvcking phenomenal with their coffee. Starbucks taste like watered down sh!t
@Honaw Fierceclaw, Waffle House coffee is good too
@Hot Coffee, coool! I haven't been there in a long time, but that doesn't surprise me
I find that most older coffee houses and dinners make great coffee
Wow I thought there was going to be some funny at this end of this.... now I just feel bad for them...
The moral of the story: public service jobs suck, because the public sucks.
It's a serial killer being born before our very eyes!
I thought they got paid 15 an hour
@DavidRomeroBruh, in Seattle
If your 33 and work at a coffee shop then you probly deserve it
I’m so sick of all these spoiled brats pretending to be Supposed Justice Wannabes when all they’re actually are are the pawns of overlords gaining power at the expense of people who have absolutely nothing to do with anything these doosh canoos are whining about. Worthless prattle.
That look says "I wanna punch that megaphone down your throat but there's cameras so Ima chill and find you later." The stance says "I get paid by the hour and I just started my shift. I got all day, hotshot!"
Tell them to go fvck themselves
