Did you see this?
today show tells us how to scam coffee shops
Shame on you! You are encouraging people to steal from businesses doing their best to make it in a struggling economy. Starbucks may have a huge markup on their coffee, the same is not true for most independent shops. There is no milk fairy. When you tell your audience to “hack” their way into a cheaper latte, you are cutting into the very thin bottom line of these businesses. When a coffee shop puts carafes of milk out so that you can make your coffee your way, they are doing so by an honor system. There is an expectation that you will not bring in a bowl of cereal and use the milk. That you won’t drink your coffee and refill your cup with the milk provided. So why in the world would anyone encourage you to get something for nothing in another way? Wrong is wrong. If you are looking to save money make coffee at home. If you want good coffee provided with a smile and just the right amount of cheek come to mean cup. Where you pay for what you get and you get more than you pay for.
