By the customer is always a cunt - United States - Sarasota
Today, a guy came into the small coffee shop I work at, and got angry because I wouldn't accept his Starbucks gift card as valid payment. When I told him we clearly aren't a Starbucks, he said "It's all the same shit" and ended up throwing a punch at me. FML

Assault is the threat to harm you, battery is if it connected. Call the cops!

I hop you're kidding! I hope to God you realize that unless the OP was at a Starbucks (which he states he wasn't), there is no way their register would have accepted a Starbucks card as payment in the system.

I'm sorry you got so downvoted, I actually find this very funny. Whenever you work in retail or anything with customer service, you're always told "The customer is always right." no matter how wrong they really are. So to everyone else, it's called sarcasm, its a joke!

It is most definitely NOT the same shit. Starbucks IS shit. It's the worst excuse for coffee I've ever had the displeasure of trying to drink. I wouldn't drink that swill even if you paid me.

You think 5 dollars are too much? Starbucks in the US is the most reasonably priced compared to the prices they charge everywhere else. Most countries I've been to, Starbucks charges up to 7/8 dollars a cup. I won't argue that it isn't shamefully overpriced, but I love me some Starbucks coffee. Can't help it

One good thing about Starbucks: in the US, hospital coffee was actually a LOT worse than Starbucks, until all the docs and staff started dashing out for Starbucks.

Starbucks normal (black) coffee is a fucking joke. People just have a need to have a foreign named coffee with so many additives and sugar in it it can't even be called coffee anymore. To each his own I suppose, still way cheaper to buy Folger's and creamer and make your own damn coffee!

I love when you ask for a "small/medium/large" like you know what it means, don't correct me. If I happened into a starbucks I ask for something with "a bunch of caffeine, hazelnut, and whipped cream"

#27 - I don't know what you're talking about but I live in Canada and I can get a XL coffee from Tim Hortons for $2. Most countries I have been to have decent price coffee. Paying $5 for Starbucks coffee is a ridiculous price for coffee and the quality isn't even better than a coffee you grab from McDonalds in my opinion.

I live in Canada and find that for regular industrial coffee, 2 or 3 bucks at Tims gets me a much better cup of coffee than Starbucks. But if I want a fancy coffee drink I'm better off going to Starbucks or a local coffee place and dropping the 5 it's going to cost me to get quality.

Tims does great coffee and meh on the specialties. Starbucks coffee is ok at best but they do great specialties. I guess it depends on which you want that day.
