WHAT TO DO ABOUT .... the Starbucks Idiot

Can we please just boycott Starbucks and put an end to Idiot schultz before he really starts?
Make Starbucks stock price DROP and so will Howard Schultz's wealth.
I am tired of hearing him yap. It's been less than a week and I have heard too much from him.

1. If his brand suffers he will drop out.

They assholes all think they can get richer by running.

2. I watched him doing an interview. I don't think we have anything to worry about.

Someone needs to ask him why he wants to be president and watch him try to articulate a coherent thought.

6. He has no policy ideas other than keeping the tax rate low for billionaires.

And 'uniting the country.' That's a pretty specific policy right there.

7. They opened one in our town

 

Out of sheer curiosity, I went there a total of two times since they opened about four ior five years ago. Both times the coffee and food offerings were TERRIBLE. A half-full cup of over burnt bean luke warm coffee and a stale pastry for $5???!

I go across the street to our local fantastic bakery where they make a wide assortment of fresh daily excellent bakery products (I know having grown up in a family full of fantastic bakers) where the perfectly roasted Small World coffee is fresh and perfectly brewed.

Starbucks sucks. Boycott the billionaire slop shops. Support your local merchants.

8. I thought he left Starbucks. I'm confused.

I thought I read that he left them (for the 2nd time) in 2017.

We used to get Starbucks at work, supplied by my employer. It was OK. Better than that flavored garbage they brought in, later.

11. I think he's no longer involved in their operation, but has tons of Starbucks stock.

9. Why would we do anything? He's a flash in the pan.

Ignore him and he'll be gone in a week or two. There's just nothing two him.

I don't get why anybody would be even the littlest bit worried about this guy having any staying power. Just ignore him and he really will go away.

10. Nothing. He is a non-entity and will peter out

with absolute ignominy.

12. Laugh at him or ignore him. There has already been too much noise about another billionaire who

doesn't want to pay his fair share.

13. Start a petition and get a million people to sign they will boycott Starbucks.

Even if he's not running it now, it's his legacy at stake.
