Starbucks Sucks! I never worked for Starbucks. I am a trainer and coffeehouse starter for an local, family-owned coffee company, and just find the company's business practices despicable. They are the Wal-Mart or Mc Donald's of the coffee world. People love the tag, and even honk, wave, and give me the thumbs up. But I don't understand, if everyone hates them so much, why are they so big?
