Pity The Poor Starbucks!


It seems as though Starbucks' profits only rose by 2% last year.

And now the poor little dears are having to cut back on their menu.


It wasn't too long ago when Starbucks so jauntily raised the prices on their already over-priced assortment of coffees.

We here in the Wonk household had to cut Starbucks from our menu some time ago because our profits teaching salary hasn't gone up in over five years.

Matter of fact, we've been cutting-back on a lot of stuff as prices of just about everything continue to skyrocket while our salaries stay the same.

Message to Starbucks: Reality Bites; get used to it.
