Read some of the bullshit on these cups. Caribou Coffee has this trash printed all over the window of their store, which I walk by most everyday. It never fails to fill me with rage: “Give your change to charity,” “Plant lots of trees,” “Have a favorite charity,” “Indulge in CHOCOLATE therapy.” The one I saw this morning – “Build communities, not empires” – made me want to smash their windows and spray-paint that very phrase on the side of the building.
I take full responsibility for my choices as a consumer. I’m well aware that I’m not doing anybody any good by giving my money to Starbucks, Target, McDonalds, etc. But don’t fucking patronize me with your corporate PR bullshit affirmations. I will never drink your moose piss coffee.
