starbucks - scuzzy coffee monkeys

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. I can only pass this email on. Words fail me; Don't know if this has been done !

    Recently, 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 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 follks, but that doesn't mean we don't support the boys of 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 when I deploy once more.

    PLEASE DON'T DELETE THIS... PLEASE PASS TO EVERYONE ON YOUR EMAIL LIST, IN MEMORY OF ALL THE TROOPS WHO HAVE DIED, SO THAT WE MAY HAVE THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE!

    Also, don't forget that when the Twin Trade Towers were hit, the firefighters 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 277 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.

    Dear God, not this shite again.

    Try googling again and you will also find the retraction and abject apology that followed.

  6. If you got an email telling you, my cock was 15 inches on the slack would you automatically believe it and pass the email on to everyone else?
