If you want a $20 "coffee" "drink" with a zillion things, go ahead, the barista gets paid by the hour, give them a tip after so as not to be a complete jerk.

As for the shot/syrup person, I'm betting they're using it for baking. Add a shot of whisky and you're half way to a whisky cake recipe.

As for the water/whipped cream, that looks like a pup cup for a dog.

That is simply the level of complexity required to make Starbucks coffee drinkable.

All that crap just covers up the taste of the "roast it until it tastes like charcoal" style that they use.

No.  The customer is not always right.  Sometimes the customer is an asshole or a moron.  Middle management idiots back at the home office who never have to interact with the public need to be taught this simple lesson.

The phrase was originally "The customer os always right about what they want." Somewhere along the line it got shortened to something wrong and that version really took off.

ok help me here as a non-Starbucks-customer - do they pay extra for each ingredient they add?

Some customers are idiots. Of course.

That said though, if you as an employee take stuff like this to your social media & get canned for it you're also an idiot yourself & got what was coming to you.

If you can't swallow garden variety stupidity, let it roll off you & go on to help the next customer then you don't belong in retail / food service.

Even as a repeat thread this still reeks of employees who should get off of twitter and go make more lattes.

When it's the morning rush and there's a dozen people waiting in line, that overly complex sugar fest is pissing off a lot of customers who have shiat to do.

the unabomber was right: Stop giving Starbucks free advertising


Somebody who never heard of them before might go check them out, based on this linked article from a 20+ year old news aggregator site. I have only been to Starbucks once. I bought a cookie.

I can verify that a medium sized penis in your mouth does cause you to order things like this.

I bet you ALL wish you could lean down that far.

I don't remember the name of the place, other than it had "Coffee" in it, but I always got by with "Large Black Coffee".

That's  because the actual saying is:
The customer should be treated as if they are always right.

It's been misquoted forever and they fail to grasp what was meant.

Honestly, ordering a stupid, gross, overpriced drink is mild. Who cares.

From a food service industry perspective it's a non-event. Back in the day working graveyard shift at a diner I wouldn't even look up until property was defaced/broken/stol​en, violence broke out, and/or the police showed up.

If the company doesn't like its employees, nobody is there to take the money from the customer. Good companies are loyal to both.

Respect. While I agree that is simpler, if I want brewed coffee I will do it myself. I don't want to buy an espresso machine to do it myself, so hence the americano.

At Starbucks the medium size is a Tall.
Of course all guys think ours is a Grande.

What's ironic is that the quote "The customer is always right" is often attributed to a man who was famous for finding ways to pinch the most money out of his customers, and lying to them at every turn.  I don't think he actually believed it.

Don't get me wrong. I prefer the Americano too, but I really hate waiting.

Putting that much crap in a coffee, you can't possibly taste any of the individual ingredients.

RyansPrivates: No wonder my barista loves me. Venti Americano.  That's it. That's the drink.


I was out of town one time and there was no coffee in the room so I went to Starbucks.  I'm not much of a "coffee guy" beyond just needing to get caffeine in me so I typically just make hot swill rather than going out and buying a cup of anything.  That's why I had no idea how to order.

I walked into the place, not yet showered, hair pointing every direction, sweat pants, sandals and a jacket, and stood there staring slightly open-mouthed at the menu.  "What can I get you?", the barista asked.  I stood there, mostly frozen in place, but my eyes quickly flicked from one side of the menu to the other while said, "uuuuuuuuhhhh..."  Her perky smile was replaced with a look of pity and she nodded her head slowly up and down as she asked, "Do you just want a cup of coffee, honey?"  I swear, I almost cried.  "Uh huh", I said.  And I think it was an Americano that she gave me.  God bless that woman and all her descendants.

That's my story.  Thanks for reading.

I'm not 100% sure but I believe it refers to what is sold, rather than to kissing the customer's ass at all times. If you start a business selling Crispy Meaty Cockroach Bites, people aren't going to buy them no matter how wonderful and delicious you think they are. The customer is right in not wanting it and the seller isn't right about insisting they buy it.

In much the same way, comedians who cry 'cancel culture' are wrong in blaming their audience for not enjoying their material, even if people liked it twenty years ago.
