I’ll try to keep this short and sweet.

My office manager would frequently provide Starbucks treats/coffee twice a month. She’d also parade around every day with a $10 sugar drink.

Back of the napkin math: $400 a month personally, and $500 a month from the company. Or $4800/yr and $6000/yr.

In my city, Starbucks has been closing rather than allow stores to unionize. Apparently, the latest closing was the last straw. Fed up, she finally purchased locally. And to her surprise, her drink “tastes better”.

Small win.
