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. Just received this, I haven't been able to verify it, but have no reason to doubt it either.

    So guys and gals, a "heads up" .....

    I can only pass this on. Words fail me.
    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 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.
    PLEASE DON'T DELETE THIS. .. PLEASE PASS TO EVERYONE ON YOUR E- MAIL 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 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.

    I never liked their coffee anyway !

    RIP, stand down the Santa poem. He died alone, in a mega-mosque with no RAF flypast, and someone gobbing off at a checkout.

    Or something like that.


    Hole.
     
  6. I wish I had a pound for everytime I read this.
     
  7. I'm outraged he fell for this fake outrage.
     
  8. OK, I fell for it ! >>>>>>>>>>>> thanks for that.

    Nearest Starbucks to me is about 40 miles away, so not the top of my list for refreshment.

    Thanks for the link, I shall feed it back to the sender.
     
  9. Well it is the Army RUMOUR Service, so perhaps its just doing what it says on the tin.

    By the way I do beleive that the outrage bus is VOR at this time.
     
  10. what a load of unchecked sh but I r still pissed with th welsh assembly for funding the world slimming championsip long kesh
     
  11. Perhaps when the bus is back on the road, I could book it for an outing to Starbucks !

    As you say "Reb", it is a rumour service ! :D
     
  12. Shame it's not true - apparently "Starbucks coffee is utter pish" is not reason enough to go to the lovely little Italian coffee shop around the corner when the missus wants something chilled, with caramel, whipped cream, coffee and COLD! Oh, and costing about 1 hours wages.

    I want my own outrage sportscar - room for me and one other middle-life crisiser to go on rampaging outrages about the price and quality of starbucks coffee
     
  13. IIRC, Starbucks fully support the US armed forces in Iraq and Afgan?
