There is no reason for anyone to be disrespected--by Starbucks or any other establishment. The people that work there may need to be reminded of that. We,the public who goes there,pay their salery,leave their tips,and ensure their jobs. And if we stop going to starbucks--they will no longer be needed there. And if they continue to mistreat their customers--that is what will happen. NO BUSINESS.
Unbelievable that in this day and age that this happens
honestly i have had my own run in with starbucks in nyc. I run one of the crews for my father's constuction/welding/contracting company. So one day while on a job in NYC I decided I would get my crew lunch and coffee from starbucks rather than the gross McDonalds (12 people mind you) I had to use the restroom and asked to use the restroom first before I ordered (what was i supposed to do with 12 coffee's in a crowded starbucks while i'm using the restroom?) I was denied entry into the restroom very rudely. I was so mad i got us all lunch at subway and then went back and informed a manager what had happand and just how much money that move cost them.
Thank god I don't drink coffee.. I wouldn't walk into that over-rated & overpriced joint even if I owned them.
The woman, who is pretty whinny, knows that if the dog has the proper identification (service vest) that it easily identified but she chose not to have it on the animal. So, when she doesn't have the identification on the animal I can see where the Starbucks person asked. Did you notice she had the animal's service dog vest on for the interview? She gets it dressed up for the news but not for a stop in the coffee shop.
the point is that legally she does NOT have to have ID on the animal and she isn't whiny she has brain damage. Also she was being responsible by not contributing to the dog over heating.
What have we become when we need a dog to help us emotionally everywhere we go.....I guess this is todays "strong woman". She's pretty whiney too. Poor dog probably wishes he was on a farm.
Everyone's dog is a service dog these days. Unless someone is blind, I wouldn't believe them either.
Why would anyone pay the prices $tarbucks charges for coffee anyways. I have never been to $tarbucks and never willI won't stand in line for coffee....It's not my cup of tea
Although there are laws regarding service dogs there are also laws regarding animals in food establishments.The owner of the dog does state that the dog was not wearing a service vest which would of identified the dog to both the employee and any health official that could fine establishment or lowered their food rating for allowing an animal into their coffee shop.Also allowing the dog into establishment Starbucks does assume liability in any civil litigation due to issues from other patrons in their establishment. As empathetic as I am to the girl and her disability her responsibility is also to have proper identification of her dog as service provider for her disability.
" her responsibility is also to have proper identification of her dog as service provider for her disability."Sorry buttercup but you are both dumb and ignorant research 1st the AWD act before making such a fool out of thyself
Perhaps it could be as simple as Starbuck's posting a sign (both in type & braille) "Service Animals Welcome". I work with individuals with disabilities and have seen such signs posted in other establishments. Wishing the best outcome for all!!!
