rip off

We've all been there before. You order a Grande Latte and when your order comes you notice it's only 3/4 full so you add some milk and sugar to make up for the emptiness.

Honestly, it annoys us all from time to time, but two Starbucks regulars in California have decided to sue the company for ripping them (and everyone) off.

Siera Strumlauf and Benjamin Robles are suing the coffee company for purposefully underfilling their cups.

In a class action suit filed this week, the two claim that Starbucks is leaving customers short by 25 percent, which they say is an act of fraud in order to cut company costs.

In the lawsuit, they claim that employees have a secret line inside the cup so they know when to stop pouring. And that is all the evidence they need to sue the caffeine chain.

Starbucks "has saved countless millions of dollars in the cost of goods sold and was unjustly enriched by taking payment for more product than it delivers," it claims.

However, Starbucks say that the whole thing is nonsense and each beverage is individually poured, making every cup different.

After it was reported this week that Taylor Swift is taking action against a radio DJ for "groping" her, it seems the singer now has another lawsuit to fight. 

TMZ reports that Ms Swift is being sued by a man who says she stole his lyrics. 

Songwriter Jessie Braham says Taylor's hit song, Shake It Off, "borrows heavily" from a song he wrote in 2013 called, Haters Gone Hate

Jessie says his lyrics are "Haters gone hater, playas gone play. Watch out for them fakers, they'll fake you everyday." The issue, as he sees it, is that she repeats the first part of that phrase 70-times in her song, and that's a serious problem for him.

Now, we're no legal eagles, but it seems like a flimsy claim at best and a bit embassarring. 

And even more embarrassing is what Jessie is asking in the lawsuit; Mr Braham is seeking $42 million dollars (€38m) and his name added to any new prints of the song. 

But all this doesn't seem to be bothering Taylor because she had an EPIC show in Florida last night.

Here's the tune he thinks is SO like Taylor's (LOL):
