HATE IT! Starbucks are Charitable Scrooges

... and your baked goods suck!

I've never been a fan of Starbucks and their over-priced, ill-tasting baked goods. Now with this news story coming out of Toronto, I've got extra ammunition to continue to stay away, and I hope others do too!

A Starbucks in Toronto told two young Brownies -- Girl Guides -- to move off the sidewalk in front of their snooty shop, to stop selling their delicious cookies for their fundraising efforts. Starbucks does not own the sidewalk their building stands behind - nope, it's public property. The girls who should be granted kudos for finding such a high-traffic location, were not blocking store access to customers. Heck, they're children! Tiny kids! Hardly hefty 200 lb. linebackers impeding the caffeine starved!

Starbucks should be ashamed! Money-grabbing twats! For shame! These kids are doing their part for their community, for their club and what do they get for their efforts --  a shove by a multi-million dollar American slug of a chain. Time to move over to Second Cup or Tim Horton's.... anyone BUT Starbucks! 

Disgusting. I hope you're as disgusted as I am and refrain from giving Starbucks your custom!

I've never used Starbucks, mainly because I don't drink hot drinks often, but I wouldn't anyway - they're so expensive.

I'm not a coffee fan either or tea ...I'm strictly a baked goods gal, and Starbucks have by far the worst cookies, muffins, etc. And they're super expensive too! Tim Horton's is my favourite -- shame they are only in Canada and certain parts of the US.

Well I OWN a small store & cafe and our community girlguides were allowed INSIDE to sell their yummy cookies. SHAME otherwise, who can deny cute little girls with boxes of delicious treats (and for a good cause too)?!
