It had to be someone from DL, right?
[quote]So the poor Starbucks customer, named Virginia, had probably already been touchy about being called “Vagina” either through intent or misspelling.
[quote]The image of the Starbucks “Vagina” cup has since been removed from the Facebook page of the international page, but reports indicate Virginia’s sister lodged an irritated complaint to America’s fave coffee company, huffing:
[quote]Every Starbucks experience for her has been coupled with fear and anticipation.
She should just change her name to Mary! Frau.
Has she tried going to Peen's?
That's nothing compared to what happened to me!
I stopped going to Starbucks for this very reason.
They did it to me once, too!
It's spelled "Virgyna."
Can you imagine a guy having such drama over this?
If a guy named Brock got handed a cup at SBUX with his name spelled "Cock," he'd probably just laugh.
Women and minorities go batshit over things like this because they think being the consumer is the one time they should be able to count on not being disrespected. White guys would just laugh it off, but then white guys rarely feel disempowered.
My friends and I have started giving fake names when we order shit where they ask us for names.
It's especially funny at one stir fry place (Flat Top Grill) where you write your name on a stick to identify that it's yours. We usually put the most ridiculous name on there so the waiter has to say...."Uh, Sparkle Pony?"
That Frappvagina to you, Bub.
It could have been worse, the woman could have had a meltdown like that Dunkin' Donut Trailer Trash Cunt.
She kicked up all this fuss because a barista wrote her name as "Vagina" on her cup? What a pussy.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
