A fight broke out between two Starbucks customers on 26 February as they both sought to buy a limited edition coffee mug at a cafe in China, The Mirror reported. Before the beginning of spring, Starbucks usually issues a limited line of various glasses and cups that become trophies for many collectors.
This time, however, anxiety to purchase the collectable cups reached a climax as people started to line up several hours before the cafe opened, with one man even spending the night in a tent in order to be among the first to get the coveted cup. The mugs are on sale only until 3 March.
