    Something about keeping water running constantly to prevent germ build-up in pipes ...

    If it's preventing the spread of germs is it really a waste of water?

    You're assuming it's really preventing the spread of germs. Why can't they use a dishwasher like most places do?

    Certainly doesn't make me feel bad about not partaking at Starbuck's.

    That's what, a gallon per Starbucks franchise?

    I had a gigantic Starbucks latte this morning, so I feel like part of the problem.

    As a lifelong resident of Seattle, I say this:

    Fuck Starbucks
    Fuck Howard Schultz

    Really? I saw an interview with him once - in writing - and he seemed like a cool guy.

    In mourning for the Sonics, most likely.

    Don't rip my future employer! (Great benefits at Starbucks, you know.)

    That made me laugh. Although they did just close a bunch of stores in my area.

    I can say with pride I've never stepped foot in a Starbucks. How can their drinks be that much better than the 99-cent Cafe Mocha at the Kwik Shop?
