Of Course There’s Going To Be Something Wrong With The Cups.
Remember last year's debacle regarding the Starbucks Christmas/Holiday cups? They weren't Christmassy enough or something crazy like that. Then they weren't colored, then there weren't enough of them, or the images weren't the right images, whatever the problem was, people complained. And they complained A LOT! I don't really understand what the big deal is. It's a cup. And it has your delicious drink in it that you paid an exorbitant amount of money for... so who cares?? Isn't what you are drinking out of it that makes a difference?
Enter the Holiday cups for 2018. This time an email or some other form of notice went out so that people could come in, get a reusable cup, red, of course, and use that over and over again throughout the holiday season. Guess what? They didn't have enough of them. Most places ran out within a couple of hours. Man, they didn't plan on people being this cheap, apparently. Maybe they thought it would be just like the white and green reusable cups. They always have a good supply of those.
You'll live. And they will get more. And you will get your cup. Settle down.
