Never liked Pepsi....

...and now I have a reason why. During an address to newly minted MBA's at the Columbia Business School, the CFO of Pepsi, Ms. Indra Nooyi launched into a diatribe about how the US is considered the 'middle finger of the world'. We're overbearing, insensitive, and disrespectful according to Ms. Nooyi, and completely ignored the fact that the US has saved the world from tyranny on at least two occasions and how the citizens of the US have contributed countless dollars to her homeland (India) to ensure that their people will remain fed in the past, even though her own government could care less.
I guess it's perfectly fine to come here, rise to power, and succeed, and then disrespect the very system that allowed you to do so.

So, I'll now be boycotting anything made by PepsiCo until she apologizes. This includes Fritos, Doritos (and that'll be tough), GatorAde, and Tropicana.

Anyone join me?

They also bottle aquafina. Only problem with boycotting pepsi is the soda machine at work is pepsi. The changed from coke back in jan. makes work that much harder to goto :(
