Man assaults Abbotsford barista because Starbucks out of cream

Abbotsford Police are on the hunt for a man who assaulted and threatened a Starbucks barista because the outlet didn't have cream for his coffee.

Const. Ian MacDonald said a man ordered a beverage at the Starbucks on Sumas Way around 6 p.m. on Wednesday night.

When the female employee told him there was no cream, he began yelling and swearing.

"To him, this is absolutely unacceptable," said MacDonald.

"He gets in her face and yells at her, and punctuates it with throwing water in her face."

The suspect, a Caucasian man in his 40s, stomped out of the store and drove away in his blue Ford pickup truck.

The truck's licence plate was obtained and the registered owner's address is located on Vancouver Island, said MacDonald.

The APD will work with the appropriate police agency to pursue charges of assault and uttering threats, he said.

3. And this would be her fault because...

 



What the hell is WRONG with people? Go to the 7-11 and get a coffee that actually tastes like coffee but costs a fraction of $tarbuck$ shit - they've got PLENTY of creamers there. Never mind. He obviously doesn't need any coffee. Taking things out on clerks because management fucked up is beyond stupid.
