Only in Seattle - dairy thefts

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Greater Seattle

I just thought this was amusing (has nothing to do with real estate).  It seems some creative people are getting their coffee fix on the cheap.   From the Seattle Times

If someone pays $2 for espresso, then fills half the cup with milk at the condiment bar, is that stealing?

People are saving $1 to $2 a cup — sometimes more, if they use half-and-half or get extra shots — with creative ordering from the complicated menus of the coffee world.

There are lots of ways to save. In one scenario, using Starbucks pricing in downtown Seattle, customers pay $2.05 before tax for three shots of espresso over ice. The same beverage with milk — also known as an iced latte with extra espresso — would cost $3.50 before tax.

Luckily the coffee tax was voted down, who knows what anarchy could have ensued.

Did you see SBUX is recalled their email promo campaign? I found it interesting seeing that, from my experience, I thought the viral marketing would be what they have wanted.
