Reddit user Larebearspear had a rotten experience at Starbucks, and shared it with the /r/talesfromretail subreddit. Now, normally the community is for retail workers to share stories from the other side of the counter. But some experiences are so terrible that you just can’t be sympathetic, no matter how many terrible customers you’ve dealt with in your day. That was this trip to Starbucks.
This website displays photos of soft drinks, smoothies, candy, and even vegetables next to little piles of sugar cubes that represent the total sugar in them. This is a great service, because if you ever go into space you can simply use this site to pack a baggie full of an equivalent amount of cubes. Then you can enjoy your Space McFlurry without worrying about liquid contamination of the spacecraft.
Someone explain how this works. Jason tells us that Starbucks Frappuccinos 4-packs normally retails at the Target in Amherst, NY, for $5.24, but there’s a new price tag on them for $5.49, boasting they’re, “Even Lower than our advertised price.” So, in the circulars they’re advertising them for, say, $5.99? Why not a sign that says, “BIG SAVINGS” and then in small letters, “as compared to a piece of gold bullion.”
