Starbucks Stiffs 9/11 Rescue Workers

This may be old and I did a search here to see if anyone had posted about it and did not find anything on it.
So here is what my wife says to me...

Do not EVER buy anything from Starbucks.
I'm like WHY ???

She says read this...
Shortly after the Sept. 11 attack, rescue workers rushed into a nearby Starbucks store to get water to treat shock victims, Rapisarda said. Ambulance company workers said employees in the shop demanded they pay $130 for three cases of bottled water. The workers paid cash, out of their own pockets.


Can you freakin believe that
Talk about taking advantage of a situation during a disaster.

They have since gone back and reimbursed the rescue workers,
only because of the bad press it caused them.
But it's too late for that in my book.
I will NEVER EVER buy any of their products.

Sorry Static, but this just don't sit well with me.
In times of disaster, we Americans, should pull together to help one another.
NOT make a profit from it.

If your hair is short and nappy...
Afrosheen will make you happy.
Anyone remember that one from the 1970's ?

Who treats shock with bottled water? Maybe NY has different protocols... Also you can't judge an entire corporation on the actions of a couple dipshits working in one store right?

They were using it to get ash and debris out of their eyes and faces.

It's exactly the opposite. Individuals usually follow corporate guidelines and when shit happens they take the blame instead of the suits in penthouse offices.
