More words of wisdom from our favorite anti-Starbucks crusader, Brian Franklin, proprietor of DoubleShot Coffee:
…as a legal clarification, I would like everyone to know that we are not Starbuck’s Doubleshot. If we tricked you into coming in here, thinking you could get a can of Starbuck’s DoubleShot here, please let me know.
And if you thought that $2 Tuesday was a sale on Starbuck’s Doubleshot, I vehemently apologize for the confusion and ask you to please not come in here anymore because stupid people annoy me…
Please tell as many people as you can about this outrageous Starbucks chicanery. We figure that the more publicity and public indignation we stir up, the better chance we will have at standing up against this evil corporate empire.
We really dig Brian’s outspokenness on this. He’s calling Starbucks’ bluff: to try to intimidate him into silence with legal threats even as they are clearly in the wrong. A lot of smaller business you’ve never heard from get driven out of business by completely unfair practices like this on the part of major corporations all the time. Brian’s right: it’s time to stop allowing large companies to bleed their competition out of business with frivolous lawsuits designed to bankrupt them on legal fees. Spread the word, guys.
