It's like 25% of their drink menu, you're not going to avoid it.

Went to a mall chair massage place and asked for him to hit my shoulders hard (sore paddling muscles from surfing).

When he was done, I tipped 35%... and he asked for more!

"That was hard work. You should pay twice!"

I tipped the difference between my original tip and two massages and never went back

Shut up, do your fubbing job and make me two, bean boy. Don't like it? Quit.

I can see being annoyed at the customers who have insane custom orders that are either overly complicated or just outright being dickish for the sake of it.  Ordering something straight off the menu, though?  Stop complaining.  At least don't complain online.  Run it up the chain and explain that it hurts productivity due to the time involved and maybe adjust the menu.

Complaining about your job is the kindred to being an American. STFU, customers, sorry your feefees are hurt.

Sure, complain about your jobs to your coworkers, friends, family, etc.  Doing it publicly online is really farking stupid.
 
2022-01-22 12:16:12 PM  
Oh noes, maybe they should go over to /r/antiwork and complain about it there.

"we have a customer that is waiting for us to open at 4:30 every single morning to order two caramel fraps," another said.

I do not imagine that there is much of a crowd at 4:30 am, but what do I know as I am sleeping then.  And what the heck do these coffee jerks care?  I could see the customers in line behind the person ordering something time consuming getting annoyed, not the coffee jerks.

Not tipping surly wait staff is also the kindred to being an American. Enjoy paying the tax on the tips you didn't get.

What difference does the complexity of an order make to someone paid hourly?

A recent TikTok from heyimozzy, captioned "POV: You order a frappuccino during a rush," shows three Starbucks workers staring at the camera.

They didn't look like they were in a rush.

Too farking bad.
I hated making frozen margaritas and daiquiries when I was a bartender. Took way too much time.  But guess what, that's why you're there.  Deal with it.

Just another reason to not go to Starschmucks..

I am usually on the side of labor but don't whine about being asked to do the job you agreed to do.
 
2022-01-22 5:48:38 PM  
I don't like my job either.
 
2022-01-22 5:50:52 PM  
I'm sure the Starbucks barista will appreciate it when I order this instead of a caramel frappucino in the morning.

Ok?

I had to fly for my job three weeks ago.  Yes, get packed into a metal tube during a pandemic.

Every job has an aspect about it that sucks.  That's why you get paid for it.

(And yes like any job interacting with "The Public", your average barista should be paid more.)

This just in: fast food jobs suck and the people in them make fun of you behind your back in a desperate bid to keep their sanity.

I'm sure you're the first one to whine about how "nobody wants to work anymore" when people finally have had enough of waiting on people like you for starvation wages and quit these bullshiat jobs, too.

If these folks get upset about making a frap, they'd be royally pissed off at my husband's standing order for Starbucks.

Venti, blonde, white chocolate mocha
Venti, blonde, cafe mocha
Venti, blonde, quad shot, sugar free vanilla latte.

Three drinks that need a total of 8 shots pulled and uses the blonde machine instead of the regular one.

So this is like McDonald's employees not wanting to make Big Macs or bartenders at Fat Tuesdays hating frozen drinks. It's the whole point of the business. Don't like it? Find another job. This is the perfect time to change career paths anyway. Just don't expect any sympathy from the rest of us who don't give a rats ass whether or not you "approve" of the company's product line.

A "surfer" who goes in for a massage after a hard wave day?
Tips hard and gets rebuked for it. "hard work"?
Nothing about this seems off?

Was there a pizza delivery guy who showed up next?

From an outsider perspective it seems like all Starbucks employees do is biatch about their customers.

I haven't been to one since the last time I was served a side of contempt. I wonder why other people keep going back.
