    Default Starbucks Fact or Fiction

    I received this message from a friend. Is this letter true?


    NO COFFEE FOR THE MARINES

    Their coffee is tasting more and more bitter.....

    STARBUCKS DENIES COFFEE TO MARINES

    Recently Marines in Iraq wrote to Starbucks because
    they wanted to let them
    know
    how much they liked their coffees and to request
    that they send some of it
    to the
    troops there.

    Starbucks replied, telling the Marines thank you for
    their support of their
    business, but that Starbucks does not support the
    war, nor anyone in it, and
    that they would not send the troops their brand of
    coffee.

    So as not to offend Starbucks, maybe we should not
    support them by buying
    any of their products! As a war vet writing to
    fellow patriots, I feel we
    should get this out in the open.
    I know this war might not be very popular with some
    folks, but that doesn't
    mean we
    don't support the boys on the ground fighting
    street-to-street and
    house-to-house for what they and I believe is right.

    If you feel the same as I do then pass this along,
    or you can discard it and
    no one will never know. Thanks very much for your
    support. I know you'll all
    be there again when I deploy once more.

    I don't know, but It's gonna be difficult to not buy their products... cause at the end of this year Starbucks will open it's first coffee shop here in Aguascalientes, and I have to try them...

    I had a feeling that it was not true.

    I tend to hear all sorts of "did you here what "insert beverage company name" did. I got an email saying "insert message" thru work alot.

    BTW how are your chisox doing this year? I haven't looked recently, my rangers are in the toilet as usual so I havn't even attempted to follow ball this year.
