    Happened to see a Peet's Coffee and although I was with my 4 yr old son, we waited in line and asked for a customer comment form.

    They were out so she gave me a pen and paper and I wrote the following to the District Manager for this part of California where I'm visiting:

    "Dear Mr. _____, Manager, Peet's Coffee

    I am intentionally not shopping at Peet's Coffee because you are disrespecting my 2nd Amendment rights. In June, the US Supreme Court is expected to rule that the 2nd Amendment applies in California. At that time, I hope you will revisit your 'no lawful carry' policy.

    Sincerely,

    /s/"

    No more money for them but I will give them them my 2 cents :celebrate

    Just buy one bean.....$10 is too much to give them.

    And after you buy that one bean, add insult to injury and buy some Starbucks coffee and drink it while you shoot the bean...

    Such violence, I'm really appalled. Don't shoot the bean. The bean is just an innocent bystander. Violence won't get us anywhere, even if it is just against one bean. The bean will become a martyr bean. It will be remembered for its sacrifice in the cause.

    If you want to make forward progress don't drink the bean. Just keepfilling outcustomer comments, keep telling everyone you know to boycott the bean. Prevent the bean from becoming all it can be.

    You aren't supposed to shot the bean, you are supposed to beat it into submission with the butt of the gun, and then torture it further by submerging the pieces into a pot of hot water.

    And then demean it further by adding creamer and sugar. . .

    Well, on second thought, maybe we can water canon the bean.

    How do they feel about UOC? In Hillcrest maybe the Pink Pistols will show up.

    Take that to your bottom line!

    Whatever you do to the bean, remember to use their pen when filling out the card. LetPeet's pay for the ink, too.

    It's a common practice when boycotting stores to even go in and shop a whole basket, use up a bunch of store clerk time and energy, back up the other customers in the line, and then suddenly remember that they are disrespecting your rights and refuse to purchase the products - make them put them all back -

    worked great when people did this to boycott supermarkets though it is a more active form of boycotting -

    Staying on the high road will earn more support from those not already on board.

    That bakery is described as European style. How European?? UOC in France?

    Comment forms are sort of like the "customer comments" section on a company's website. Totally worthless. The good comments they forward to higher up. The bad ones getlost in the process.
