Apparently, "Bill Gates alone lost $3.2 billion on the stock market yesterday... to put that into perspective, that's like a regular person losing... a dollar in a vending machine — it's really not that much, really."

Earlier this week, the CEO of Starbucks Howard Schultz sent a message to employees asking them to be empathetic to customers who may have lost big in the market. Kimmel got ahold of Starbucks' new (fake) training video and it's a doozy. An excerpt: "More than ever we must be sensitive to our customers needs, As a Starbucks barista, your mission remains the same... You should always be prepared to: 1. Serve quality coffee; 2. Provide excellent service; and 3. Let rich people scream at you." Go, watch the full clip above.
