What A Crap Poll!

I've heard of weighing polls to get the results you want, but geeze, this one takes the cake! In case you can't read it, it says:

Do you enjoy Starbucks(R) Coffee?
OYes ONo
Vote and get a FREE* $500 Starbucks(R) Gift Card!

What possible incentive would anyone who doesn't like BigBucks coffee have to answer?

Not that I really care, but it still makes me sick. I think I hate statistics. If the numbers themselves don't get warped to serve someone's purpose, then the study that got them did.

I declared a frigging jihad on frigging Starbuck's when I was 6 months preggers when they fired me for no reason.

the company itself, tho--isn't the consumer whore rush... it's the customers. The company itself is quite charitable with it's Free Trade coffee and all that... kinda neatos.... but yeah... still fuckers... -__-

statistics are lame... yay logic

Bummer about them firing you like that. I guess you no longer fit their company image of beautiful hip eye-candy employees. Is it me, or do they all seem to only hire these verging on nerdy yet damn hot young college women? I can't even remember the last time I saw a man working there, not to mention anyone normal.

Well, the company itself is a bit loony IMHO. To start with there's, as noted, their hiring practices. Then what's up with their cup size names? And they still charges a freaking fortune for coffees that really aren't that expensive. It's like movie-theater popcorn. You just want to scream WTF!

But yeah, some of those customers scare me too. Most are normal enough, but some... I mean it's just freaking coffee people. It's not a dissertation on world peace. It's not an arms treaty. If the foam isn't just right it's not going to bring about the apocalypse. You really don't have to have that big stick rammed up your...



Anyway, I pretty much avoid BigBucks Coffee like the plague these days. Of course, I'm also not much of a coffee drinker.

Hmm ... actually, I like them about as much as I like statistics. They're both pretty screwed in the head IMHO.
