    Starbucks barista writes 'Pig' on police officer's cup

    An Oklahoma Starbucks apologized on Thanksgiving after one of its baristas wrote "Pig" on the label for a police officer's order.

    Kiefer Police Chief Johnny O'Mara shared a photo of the insulting cup handed to one of his officers, who purchased the beverages on Thursday morning in Glenpool, just south of Tulsa, as a kind gesture for the dispatchers on duty.

    If it is ever your misfortune to be attacked, alertness will have given you a little warning, decisiveness will have given you a proper course to pursue, and if that course is to counterattack, carry it out with everything you've got! Be indignant. Be angry. Be aggressive.

    There is absolutely no excuse to ever do this. Like the police, hate the police, indifferent, does not matter.

    The "Barista" should be fired. Period.

    Would have been fun to write "Bernie Sucks and so does this coffee" on it and hand it back to them on the way out.

    Some people go out of their way to be nasty. Others go out of their way to be nice. The officer was buying coffee to take to the dispatcher. That was nice. The nitwit who took the order and printed the label was nasty. She was also stupid. If, as she claimed, it was a joke she was too stupid to realize no one was going to laugh. If it was not a joke then she is too stupid to do her job. Either way she ought to be in the unemployment line today. She is probably not too stupid to fill out the form.

    I do hope everyone here that eats and drinks at fast food places understands the risk of being served contaminated orders is high.

    Sadly, I have a niece (total scumbag) who was employed by a fast food chain. Whenever LEOs, or other decent folk these lowlifes envied walked in as customers, they would call for a "special", which would be an order contaminated in various disgusting ways.

    This is another valid reason I no longer patronize junk food joints.

    I do hope the officer who received the cup marked "pig" had his order tested for contaminants.

    The barista has been suspended "pending the outcome of our investigation," Starbucks told FOX 25 Thursday night.
    The only investigation needed is to get the address to mail the former baristas final check.

    I would use this incident as a reason to boycott Starbucks...but I already did that a long time ago.

    Am guessing that has already, or is about to happen. Good.

    I’ve been “boycotting” Starbucks for years. Yeah, their politics suck, but their products are overpriced and their coffee tastes burnt. I’ve avoided the place since long before stuff like “pigs” became commonly known.
