    Conservatives are Smashing Their Keurig Coffee Makers

    Seems conservatives are hopping mad at Keurig for dropping sponsorship of the Hannity Show.

    Seems Keurig could not sponsor Hannity after Sean's soft-ball interview of accused child sexual harasser...Roy Moore.

    In seething anger, conservatives went to social media to post videos of their destruction of their Keurig coffee makers. ...lol thata show them

    Keurig and other companies faced pressure to pull their ads following Hannity's interview with Roy Moore, the Senate candidate in Alabama who is facing allegations he engaged in sexual misconduct with a 14-year-old girl and pursued several teenagers while he was in his 30s.

    Critics of the interview said Hannity went too easy on Moore. By Saturday, several companies — including Keurig, 23andMe, and E-Trade — announced they would pull their ads.
    The videos are hilarious.

    The layers upon layers of idiocy here are utterly bewildering. Even right down to the appliance itself.

    I don't drink coffee, so my opinions on Keurig are muted. But that said, they impressed the **** out of me with their customer service. My wife uses one, and on a Sunday night, during a holiday weekend, she told me it had broken. I found the service number, and planned to call them after the long weekend. But, I figured I'd make sure I had the right number, so I called it anyway - this was about 10:00 at night. I was shocked that a person answered. The guy talked me through a few repair attempts, initiated the shipment of a replacement unit, and asked that I use a small box to return one critical piece of the old Keurig before discarding the broken unit. By the time I hung up, the new unit was on its way.

    Again - this was at 10:00pm, on a Sunday, during a holiday weekend. Color me impressed.

    OTOH, this is an example of conservatives finally becoming environmentally aware and getting rid of those nasty, garbage creating machines.

    And you thought I wasn't a "glass half full" kind of guy.

    To be fair, Keurig is working hard to make their cups recyclable. By the end of 2018, all K-cups made in Canada will be recyclable, and by the end of 2020, all K-cups will be recyclable, regardless of where they are manufactured.

    Good customer service is rare, indeed.

    Having said that, as much as they charge for their machines and their coffee, they can afford it.

    Or, should I say "overcharge" for their machines and their coffee.

    Starbucks is a bigger rip off, but Keurig is on the list...

    I wonder how many of these outraged people will buy more new keurigs, so that they can keep on posting their protest videos.

    I'll smash a Keurig coffee maker.

    I don't even need an excuse.
