Starbucks, please improve your gift card November 19, 2007 6:37 am

I’m staring at that container of contaminated coffee grounds trying to calculate the odds that it contains cyanide or razor blades or spit or roach eggs or something equally as horrible. I could easily join Futurama’s Fry’s 100 cup coffee zen state right now. That would be awesome! But, really, that is not an option. The right thing to do is returned the damaged container to the store.

Starbucks needs to improve their gift card. Right now, you can add money to the gift card which is cool. But others need to be able to add money to the gift card! How much cooler it would be to have a "Gimme Coffee" button on a site instead of a Paypal button! So Starbucks, if you are listening, please change your gift card so that people from the Internet can put more money on my gift card. Thanks!

Update: My wife put this idea into my head and email the suggestion to Starbucks.

That is a MOST excellent idea. Starbucks are you listening to my friend, Doug? Please do so.

Otherwise it is a Maxwell House / JFG day.

Which takes me to another thought. I have always been in love with Knoxville but especially when I drive downtown and the coffee beans are roasting at JFG. Man, I love my life and the free smell of millions of coffee beans roasting at one time and all for free.

I need coffeeeeeeeeee>

Blast that trackback spam (I’m keeping it because I need it to stop it…I have a plan!).

I gave in. Yesterday at Sam’s I saw Kona Coffee for $25 a pound! That’s the stuff that Weigel’s is advertising so heavily. I tried some at Weigel’s a couple of weeks ago and thought it tasted like water. Just didn’t do anything for me. One of the employees told me that I must have had some incorrectly prepared and implored me to try again. Today was that day. I needed coffee so the Kona sits on my desk. You know… It’s pretty good!

It appears that it is you, Cathy and me and the tracakback spammers unite.

You really need the Hawaiin shirt that the Weigels employees wear when consuming your Kona coffee from Weigels.

BTW, I am on the record as saying there ain’t no bad coffee, just better and better.
