Coffee Con

Cop demands free coffee.

A policeman in the United States has been sacked for allegedly threatening employees at a Starbucks in Daytona Beach, Florida. Lt. Major Garvin, who earned in the region of $80,000-$90,000 per year, lost his job after employees at the restaurant reported him. Apparently, the officer frequently demanded free coffee; and said that if he didn’t get it, the staff at the store would get a slow response time in the event of “something happening”. Staff also said that the officer regularly pushed in front of other customers who were queuing to be served. Garvin’s superior said, “I’m embarrassed by this incident because it makes the police look stupid and intimidating. And on top of all that, this guy earns very good money. I know the restaurant is pretty expensive, but this is ridiculous!”
