    Offensive Starbucks Slogan

    Advertisement



    So I'm sitting here drinking a Venti Mocha, and I'm looking at the "slogan" on the sleeve, and at first I laughed, but then I kinda thought this was a knock on us crack-berry folks. Have a look and decide for yourself.

    (I'm not really offended, it's kinda tongue in cheek)

    Yep. They're out of coffee ideas so they're picking on their customers. They'd better watch out who they offend though - I understand business has dropped off for them too.

    Wishy-washy too. It was T-Mobile before AT&T I believe.

    Life is too short to get stressed about words on a piece of cardboard. I am not being rude, but just feel that we are too sensitive sometimes.

    I think we're all just kidding. Who would really care what they think? We're gonna be BB adicts regardless of what Starbucks says in their ads on their cups.

    Yeah, I mean I am a semi-intelligent person and I really don't even get that. It makes no sense to me and how is their product supposed to relate to a Blackberry or any other smartphone? I mean, I understand the "addiction" relationship but is that it?

    Am I missing the obvious?

    So you can get all "hopped up" on the coffee and then stay awake longer playing with your Blackberry. I get it now...lol

    Folks, it was a joke. My original post said "I'm not really offended, it's kinda tongue in cheek"

    Yep ~ we know, and that's what discussions are for

    If they get out of hand that's what we're here for.
