She may be smiling, but I know she's judging me for ordering a drink with oat milk...and still getting whipped cream on it.

Do you just instinctively know that when you get a mobile order for a caramel frappuccino and a cake pop, a 12-year-old is 100% about to walk through the door and pick it up?
