People just after the almighty dollar $$ On this topic- I go into Starbucks frequently I usually order iced hazelnut coffee
on a hot day lets say I get my coffee and I do not taste the hazelnut? guess what I take it back to the counter and ask them to remake it! simple my point here is if you ask for drink to be re-made they will do it so I see this lawsuit as silly!

I used to work at Starbucks when I was younger. As per the barista "regulations" you have to leave a 1/4 to 1/2 inch of room from the top "to avoid spillage"

And if you ever get an iced drink, the ice is filled to the TOP line, if not to the complete top. The iced coffee is subpar leftover grounds of beans that did not make it to normal coffee bean packaging, which is why it has a strong footy/acidic taste.

If you get an iced latte, the fat, which is the milk, should be thick, like breve/half&half or heavy cream, not the non-fat cloudy water stuff people ask for. Your shots will blend better with more fat content. That's why there's plenty of ice. And no, you won't gain 50 lbs just from drinking breve. you will die sooner with the triple amounts of splenda/equal/sweet & low/bullshit you put in it.

cup filled -> customer spills drink -> company gets sued
cup filled 3/4 to avoid spilling -> customer rages because their cup is not 100% filled -> company gets sued

Remember when that person sued (was it Mcdonalds?) because they spilled hot coffee on themselves and got burned but were mad and blamed McDonalds because there was no warning on the cup? I mean it would be like suing the maker of a tank after running over yourself and getting squished because there was no warning on the tank on how heavy it was. There is no warning for stupidity!

I don't have the slightest urge to drink coffee, because I was raised on hot cocoa as a kid while all the grownups were drinking coffee, and now I can't drink anything brown and hot that isn't thick with chocolate and marshmallow.

So, on those rare occasions when I go into Starbucks to say "Heyy, get me, I'm trendy and Millennial!" I usually go for some mutation of Caramel Hazelnut Mocha Frappucino, since I only want the 1/4" of coffee syrup to be a flavor in my chocolate-caramel-whipped-cream milkshake. It goes nice with the chocolate and caramel.

It would have to, of course, be some place that everyone holds a grudge against for being obnoxiously everywhere, for which you can cast sweeping "They've got it COMING!" judgments against all the deluded fans who destroy their bodies enslaving their dollars to it, and, obviously, has huge wads of their unfairly-gotten billion-dollar gains lying around in Scrooge McDuck's money bin to skim a little off of back to the "normal" lower-middle-class people, because the Big Company has everything and the Little People have nothing.

We now return you to the discussion of that earlier nutty McDonald's lawsuit.
(And I assume someone's found a flimsy excuse to sue Subway by now?)

The McDonald's "hot coffee" lawsuit for anyone who's curious about it:

- Liebeck v. McDonald's Restaurants
- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liebeck_v._McDonald%27s_Restaurants

Liebeck v. McDonald's Restaurants, also known as the McDonald's coffee case and the hot coffee lawsuit, was a 1994 product liability lawsuit that became a flashpoint in the debate in the United States over tort reform.

A New Mexico civil jury awarded $2.86 million to plaintiff Stella Liebeck, a 79-year-old woman who suffered third-degree burns in her pelvic region when she accidentally spilled hot coffee in her lap after purchasing it from a McDonald's restaurant. Liebeck was hospitalized for eight days while she underwent skin grafting, followed by two years of medical treatment.

McDonald's had refused several prior opportunities to settle for less than what the jury ultimately awarded. The jury damages included $160,000 to cover medical expenses and compensatory damages and $2.7 million in punitive damages. The trial judge reduced the final verdict to $640,000, and the parties settled for a confidential amount before an appeal was decided.

I was travelling to saskatoon a few years back and stopped at a restaurant. As I gave the waiter my order another waiter who was carrying drinks walked behind me and dropped a glass of milk from his tray and it hit me square in the head. It broke on impact and I spent the rest of the night covered in glass and milk

If I can get broken glass in my head and not need to sue, I think your pathetic ass is okay having a little less coffee in one of your cups.
