I thought this yelp review of starbucks was a joke

But then I went to this person's page and I guess they're serious. So there you go, the Dixon Starbucks is fantastic. And the review has pictures!

I love this particular drive-thru location en route to Boreal. Luckily, I needed to stretch my legs and visit the restroom, so we witnessed some very cool things 'bout this branch. The staff were super-friendly and efficient. They were still well-stocked on holiday clearance items so we just HAD to buy some new travel mugs! (You really can't have enough of these). On the wall above the condiment bar, just beside the barista counter where you wait for your drinks, they had some prominently displayed photos. One was labeled "In Our Neighborhood. Welcome to Dixon Starbucks. Get to know about the partners - their favorite drinks and pastries." Below this, were photos of all staff members along with the promised info.! I thought this was so great and personable. I also LOVE that they use the term "partner" instead of "staff" or "employee." It must help in having their employees feel vested in their workplace. Beside this "billboard," was another smaller photo frame labeled "Partner of the Quarter. Partner of the Month. Customer of the Month;" each title accompanied with their respective photos. Very cool.Additionally, they obliged me by giving me "extra red sprinkles" on my peppermint mocha! And it tasted that much better in my brand-spankin-new, sale-priced travel mug!!!

That is pretty funny.

I actually also should give a thumbs up to the Dixon Starbucks. I organized an Earthday event last year at Grasslands Regional Park and the manager at the Dixon Starbucks donated all the coffee to keep the volunteers fueled all day.

I love how this person is into the whole "Partners" thing.
I think its such an annoying corporate trend. Associates, partners, friends, etc.
When Aaron Weiss worked at Starbucks we used to call him comrade.

This lady confirms my hatred of 99% of reviews by "Elite" members -- as a rule, boring, pompus, and humorless. I found the coolest guy ever -- he reviews the Royal Cafe in Albany and says, "the girl there is nice...maybe I'll ask her out." He's the best in a serial killer way.
