Royal Marines Vs. Starbucks

Discussion in 'The ARRSE Hole' started by CornedBeefHash, Jun 8, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Not sure if any of you guys know? I am so disgusted, I thought I could only let you guys know.

    Recently, British Royal 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 Royal 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 support them by NOT buying any of their products!

    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.

    If you feel the same as I do then pass this along.

    Thanks very much for your support. I know you'll all be there again when I deploy once more.

    There are undiscovered tribes in the Amazon rain forest that know this story is shite!
  11. I for one will never buy from Starbucks again. They'll never see a penny of my hard earned money!

    (only because their coffee tastes like a combination of fag ash and dog food, their hygiene standards are below that of an industrial estate burger van, their staff have the personality of Gordon Brown and the coffee knowledge of my cat, not because of some daft story)
  12. wow never knew this will cease trading there forthwith :roll: :roll:
  13. I'd never make the mistake of giving this carp airtime and certainly not last week :D


    Hang em, hang all the antistarbuckers.
