Are You Griping Because You Didn’t Think Of It First?

It’s interesting to see the complaints people have about these customers suing Starbucks for underfilled cups of coffee. Is this a symptom of people not knowing what an advertisement means? If you ask and pay for an eighteen ounce cup of coffee, and the server hands you fourteen ounces in a twenty ounce cup, you should, in a reasonable society, be entitled to those four ounces (either in the form of the purchased liquid or money back). That’s not a “first world problem”, that’s how monetary exchange functions. Do these people even understand that an eighteen ounce drink doesn’t go into an eighteen ounce cup, so there’s no way it’d spill on you? Keep in mind, by the way, that these people calling for Starbucks customers to get a reality check or “give money to the homeless” are the same ones who spend two to four hundred dollars on a cell phone, then cry like babies about how three of their sixty-four gigabytes are being taken up by a shitty U2 album. My math may very well be off, but I’m pretty sure you could feed way more people with two hundred dollars than you could with seven dollars and fifty cents. And, to my knowledge, not only can you not eat a cell phone, but that (most of your unnecessary electronics, actually) handheld device was brought to you by illegal child labor. So, yeah, people… Cool it with the hissy fit. And learn to multitask. Most adults can sue a company for not giving them what they paid for and contribute to several non-profits at the same time.
