13 Moments That Slowly Make Baristas Want To Die

It's coffee, not rocket science.

Posted on

3. When people are collecting more than one drink and crazily exclaim they have another drink when receiving the first one.

I can see you have another drink but clearly you do not understand that I can only make one beverage at a time, I am barista, not an octopus.

4. When creepy old men reply to ‘sugar is on the condiment bar’ with a wink and ‘oh no thank you, I’m sweet enough.’

5. When People order food that is not on display.

If it’s not on display we probably don’t have it, please do not make me ring it through the till only to then waste my time and annoy my manager by making them come to void it.

6. When people fail to understand that the collection point is not where you queue to order.

You can see people paying at the till, but that's definitely not where you pay and order, right?

7. When people refuse to give you their name.

No I do not want to steal your identity, no I do not want your number too, I just want a name to make sure you get the right drink and I do not have to deal with you again.

8. And then their drink gets taken by someone else.

The bittersweet revenge, your point was proven about the necessity of a name but you have to deal with the idiotic ramblings of the moron whose drink was stolen and now needs replacing.

10. When ‘your drink will be ready at the end, please head down there’ falls on deaf ears.

A latte for Martin sits at the end of the bar for 20 minutes when you can see Martin sitting down oblivious to the announcement of his order and apparently the world around him.

11. And when they eventually come to collect their drink and complain it's cold.

YOUR DRINK HAS BEEN CALLED REPEATEDLY FOR THE PAST 20 MINUTES MARTIN! IT’S NOT MY FAULT YOU HAVE JUST RETURNED TO PLANET EARTH FROM YOU IMAGINATION!

12. Taking an order from someone who is on the phone.

This is a sure fire way to be hurled 20 questions in retaliation to the rudeness.

'Is that a medium?’

‘Can I take a name?’

‘Would you like to try our speciality roast today?’

‘Any cakes or biscuits?’

‘Would you be interested in registering a Starbucks card?’
