    You think these places are staffed for that?

    Under/over until there's a "standing in the schoolhouse door!" tweet?

    When you're down to final customers? Yeah. The closing routine takes two or three people.

    They were still putting out food for the folks in line.

    That's the thing.

    They hadn't begun their closing routine yet.

    Closing the line is part of the closing routine. Easier to do by turning people away at the door.

    Because it satisfies the desire to see someone pay.

    As the nation turns Hard left, it’ll be something to watch. You’ll need more and more and harder and harder rules in place to resist the protest movement. Legislating fairness for every circumstance is hard work

    In response to employee complaints about the number of needles they're finding in their stores' bathrooms, Starbucks comes up with the only logical solution -- putting sharps boxes in the bathrooms for customers to dump their used needles in.
    Because we all know insane homeless junkies are tidy and considerate of the people who have to clean up after them.

    Drugs and syringes have become such a problem in Starbucks bathrooms that the company is installing needle-disposal boxes in certain locations

    Should they hire bouncers? It’s called harm reduction and these bathrooms will be cleaner and less dangerous than before.

    The whole Starbucks "bathroom issue" thing is kinda fascinating to me.

    Over Christmas I listened to someone explain to my son that Starbucks is really hurting because their bathrooms have become god-forsaken shooting galleries ever since that horrible bathroom policy change.

    The person saying this has been in a Starbucks maybe twice.

    My son is a shift supervisor at Starbucks. He has worked there for two and a half years. Over that time his stores have had a grand total of one (1) needle in a bathroom.

    (And that new bathroom policy? Same as the old bathroom policy.)

    So if you go into a Starbucks bathroom and see a needle box, you're feeling a lot safer?
    Even if it is safer, it's not really attacking the root problem of junkies shooting up in the bathroom.

    But, hey, at least they're not McDonald's. Dudes are bringing dead raccoons into that joint.
