StarBucks Policy - SNOPED AGAIN.

Discussion in 'The ARRSE Hole' started by Napoleon_Bunnyparte, Jun 19, 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. Apologies if this has been raised before. Made my blood boil.




    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.
    Sgt. Howard Wright,

    1 Platoon, Recon Company, Royal Marines


    PLEASE DON'T DELETE THIS... PLEASE PASS TO EVERYONE ON YOUR E- MAIL LIST, IN MEMORY OF ALL THE TROOPS WHO HAVE BEEN WOUNDED, LOST LIMBS AND EVEN DIED, SO THAT WE MAY HAVE THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE !


    Also, don't forget that when the Twin Trade Towers were hit, the fire fighters and
    rescue workers went to Starbucks because it was close by for water for the survivors and workers, and Starbucks CHARGED THEM!!!


    AN ADDED NOTE TO THIS: STARBUCKS HAD STORES ON SEVERAL MILITARY BASES IN THE UNITED STATES. THEY ARE NOW BEING REMOVED BECAUSE OF THIS.


    There are 227 Starbucks stores across the UK, and there's no doubt that our soldiers would get the same response from this company, so let us do our
    bit and boycott Starbucks to show them how despicable their actions are.
     
  2. This isn't true.....and it's been done 5345675 zillion times before.....and is quite frankly very dull.
     
  3. incoming
     
  4. How many more fcukin times :(
     
  5. I used the search function and could only find 23 hits for "Starbucks" :wink:
     
  6. not again!!!!!!!

    Once again, the truth behind the Starbucks story

    also complete shite.
     
  7. try 'Coffee' and 'outrage' too
     
  8. I prefer tea myself anyway.
     
  9. Snopes is your friend.
     
  10. Still no where near 5345675 zillion! :D :D :D :D
     
  11.  
  12. I wrote to Yorkshire Tea when I was in Iraq asking for some freebies but they said they don't support anyone from my side of the Pennines and that the house of Lancaster will be defeated soon and people like me burnt at the stake.
     
  13. huzzah! :D
     
  14. Well I did apologise if this had been posted before. Should have used the great ARRSE "Search" facilities to check my post before sending. I shall go and ram my head up the naughty end of a 105mm :)
     
  15. Some truth in this, an employee charged them, the money was then refunded, free coffee was given to rescue workers and $1 million was given to the Sept 11th Fund.

    I bet youve sent the email about this load of shite to everyone in your address book.

    Dont forget to tell everyone about how a bloke in your unit, while on Telic, received a video of his wife being spit roasted, thenat the end, covered in Harry Monk said she wanted a divorce!
