Starbucks Kicks Customers Out Into New York's Crazy Storm?

Talk about pouring a bitter cup. The Post reports that eight customers inside a Long Island Starbucks were unceremoniously kicked out at the peak of yesterday’s lethal storm.

“It was like a monsoon,” said Gregory Sullivan, 46, of Port Washington, a history professor at the US Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point. He was in the coffee shop in Manhasset for all of five minutes when the lights went out and the staff told customers to take a hike.

Consumerist’s request for comment wasn’t returned by the time of posting.
