On Bikini and Coffee

I think i just have to write this one.

Earlier, I posted two messages on my Facebook page and also on Twitter.

This fiasco over Bellevue bikini barista is insane. Oh, and suggestion to photograph customer for defamation is illegal

and then

Also, Bellevue’s “Deputy Mayor” Claudia Balducci suggesting breaking a law while she is in office is just plain scary

Though I vaguely heard about this place before, I have not cared much, and never visited this establishment, but after hearing and reading all news about it, perhaps I should go there, just to check it out. They got free advertisements, way to go.
If anyone want take picture of me there, be my guest, but let me have that picture, so I can post it on my Facebook profile. (note, this statement should not be taken that I’m tolerating harassment and character defamation.)
Seriously, it’s just bikinis, it’s not that they are working naked in there. You can find far worse stuff on TV, come on. If you don’t like it, just don’t patronize them. No business can sustain without customers, just basic economy thing.
Like I wrote in the original quotes, it’s just eye opening to see that there is actually an elected official in the office who promotes committing crime. Especially considering customers aren’t doing anything illegal going there, and if she is suggesting “shaming customers” that seems to be clear case of harassment and defamation.
As much as I just don’t get the “idea” of bikini barista I really don’t get people going nuts and screaming about it. We are still few years away from 2012 and the world is not falling apart just yet.
