for all you starbucks fans out there, there is a free hazel macchiato offer going around the internet. what you need to know is that there are only 2 valid forms of vouchers to grab the drink for free. it either has to be a voucher handed out to you by a barista OR an actual eGift from starbucks (an email from starbucks stating you have a free hazel macchiato drink).

got a lot of pissed off customers coming in complaining about starbucks not honoring it. well, we can't honor whats not valid.

Already in the freebies thread buddy.

But thanks for the heads up, we all know that already, but some guys are still trying their luck. I bet you the customers already know it's not valid, but figure, maybe a hissy fit will get them the free macchiato. Disgusting if they do. You, as an employee, should have the power to tell'em to fuck off and never come back.

I didn't even try... not worth the hassle. I'd rather spend my time cashing in 5 dollar coupons at Canadian Tire, LOL.

Brutal line ups. And, no eye candy whatsoever. Just c-lai's who shouldn't be wearing lycra/spandex.

Being a store manager of a Starbucks in Vancouver we already do too much for customers, there is no way anyone is going to get a free macchiato from me, no matter the hissy fit. I'll just look at them like..

Those of you who have hardwired your dashcam directly into your car,


Did you cut the wire just before the cigarette adaptor plug, and just solder the bare wires into a new circuit?

Does the cigarette plug serve as a inverter/power adaptor, or is it just a plug?

Thanks

It's just a plug. However, I suggest you buy a cigarette plug extender and cut that, leaving the dashcam's cigaratte plug alone. That's what did in case I decide to sell the unit later. Also, if it's a Blackvue, you can buy extra mounts and adapter cords for using your dashcam in other vehicles. I guess in that case you can always buy an extra adapter cord when selling the unit. No big deal either way.......

Globe and mail in hot water for posting a crotch shot of a 17 year old on front page.

Globe and Mail picture was unacceptable, embarrassing: Public editor | Canada | News | National Post

Teens these days...

Quote:
Two teenage girls are facing a number of charges after a stabbing spree at SkyTrain stations around the Lower Mainland last night.

It started at Gateway Station around 11:30 p.m. The 14- and 15-year-old girls apparently got into a fight with two other women outside the station.

Anne Drennan with Transit Police says the one of the older women involved in the argument was stabbed. The teens then got back onto the train to Columbia Station.

Drennan tells us the girls are accused of then confronting a woman on the train, “threatening her with an eight-inch serrated steak knife and stabbing a train seat.”

It didn’t end there; the girls and the victim got off at Columbia Station, where the same woman was punched. The teens then rode to Joyce Station, where a man holding a pizza box was stabbed.

Two teens arrested after stabbings on SkyTrain | News1130

Even more WTF...

The 14 and 15-year-olds have a combined total of 142 run-ins with police. Part of their court conditions include a prohibition from using the public transit system.

I was at Aberdeen this morning. Parked the car across from row of handicapped parking stalls. Out of four occupied spots, only one vehicle had a handicapped sign on display. I watched one woman with a toddler park in one spot (no sign), while I see this fairly young dude run to his vehicle to get something. It's the one vehicle with the handicap sign hanging from rear view mirror. I go check it out. It's got a name on it. Helen Zhang, LOLOLOL.

I have a dashcam, so perhaps I should send footage to SPARC BC.

I don't give a rat's ass what people do, but there's a reason why there are handicapped stalls - it's for people with real disabilities.

And no, bcrdukes, don't say it..... the guy is a douche, though. hee hee

so my window deflector broke and now i have another set to put on. I'm guessing the ones that are currently on my car are stuck on with 3M tape. What can I use to remove these without leaving residue?

Handicap signs aren't just for the driver. If the car has a passenger who is handicapped, then that is ok too. For example, my grandma is eligible for a handicap sign, so she gets one......if i'm ever driving her, I'm allowed to park in the handicap spot, of course with the sign displayed. So the guy may not be a douche....maybe he drove Helen
