I have NEVER met Cheyenne Jackson. I have never hung out with him in his dressing room, he did not tweet me, he never bought me a beverage, and he mostly certainly didn't tickle me. . .that is all.

'Cause they weren't making enough money as it was *eye roll*

Ya know, if they LOWERED their prices 9 cents, they'd still be making tons of money.

Supply and demand.

Starbucks sucks for so many different reasons...
"I can't figure out what kind of life this is, comedy or tragedy, I just know it's showbiz. And what if I don't agree with the lines I have to read? They don't pay me enough, the way I see it."

Jerks. Some of their drinks cost about the same as a gallon of milk.

Go to those corner bodegas, people. The coffee is a lot better and a lot cheaper. There was life before the mocha latte soy thai grande yada yada crap they did!

Well, bully for you. Glad you're rich. 9 cents each time you go to Starbucks each time adds up.

If you go everyday for a year, that's $328!

Ivan, I hardly ever get out of there for under five bucks. And I'm only getting one beverage. So a nice cent raise on already really high prices is quite a lot. Like Q said, it adds up.

I kind of agree with Ivan on this one. If you can afford five bucks for a freaking cup of coffee nine more cents ain't gonna bust you.
PEACE.
