Re: “Starbucks: Homeless Shelter of Choice

I don't think Not a Cat is going to missed at all. "I'm leaving, largely due to the hostility of certain posters. Take care."

Certain posters like you maybe pal? hahaha. Does anyone else see the humor in all that.

Ironic critisisms aside. I am not a know it and don't profess to be an expert on anything so please don't fact fuck me or discredit me. Leave the ego at the with me please, I would love to debate topics simply on a cooperative basis not a (penis) brain credentials war.

I got three questions for you.

1. "Rico" and "3.SrIZgXIn-94wlXob+TM*mLQxO?qXv^53.CJPq8&n&9TxsQWuEHZC:YlqeLUD&S" or can we just call you ("BB" - Borders Barista?, THESE TWO ACTUALLY ADDRESSED THE QUESTION...

What do you do, when a homeless person comes into your business, what is the protocol, what do your bosses say?

Or how nice should we actually be when given the opportunity with someone who needs kindness the most out of anyone in our society?

2. "lo-lee-ta" brought up a good idea. Why do the homeless like Starbucks the most?
With the anti-corporate sentiment here in Portland you would think it might be otherwise. Maybe it has cleaner bathrooms or is more accessable than other coffee shops. Maybe they are not all assholes who ask you to leave for simply just sitting down without buying anything. Maybe they won't mess with you if you wont mess with them?

Is Starbucks more hobo friendly?
we should do a survey with the homeless.

3. "Patrick Nolen" said that, "the sad thing is that we expect people to not be apart of society to use a restroom... pretend to be a ghost and no one will "notice" you..."

WHY DO WE TREAT THE HOMELESS LIKE THEY ARE NOT A PART OF SOCIETY? ARE THEY THE PROBLEM OR IS SOCIETY THE PROBLEM?
