1. Pour your coffee out into the trash can to make room for cream and sugar. ABC We have to take that trash out, and if enough people do this, the bottom of the bag breaks and we get all of the old liquid over our shoes. No barista is happy when they're wearing wet, soggy, trash coffee socks. 2. Pick up a drink without looking at it or reading a name on it. Nickelodeon If you accidentally pick up the wrong drink and take a sip, we have to remake it. A little part of us dies because names and orders are literally written on the sides of the cup. If they aren't, chances are we hand the drink directly to you. 3. Ask for something extra dry.

Pay with a $100 bill. Fox We get that sometimes you have no choice, but it's very rare we even get $20 bills. If you do have to pay with $100, please don't give us the stink eye when you get $94.75 back in $5 bills and $1 bills. 5. Use your windshield wipers if you're in our drive-thru.

Cars always forget to turn off their wipers, which subsequently flick water into the window and onto us. 6. Ask for five separate transactions in one car through the drive-thru. FXX If you and all of your friends want iced coffees, and you want to pay separately, please go inside to order and pay. It's really confusing to have multiple orders per car, and it holds up the line. 7. Leave straw wrappers on the pickup counter.

Please walk it to the nearest trash can, which is most likely less than 3 feet away. 8. Complain that an extra-hot drink isn't hot enough. Nickelodeon Milk is usually steamed to about 150°, but it can get taken up to about 170°. When it gets too much hotter, it'll start to burn and curdle. That's not something anyone wants, so please don't tell us to steam it to 200°. 9. Tell us a drink was supposed to be iced after you made no indication of that when you ordered it.

If you say "latte," we're going to make you a hot one. 10. Hold the door open.

Please leave the door closed instead of welcoming them in. 11. Watch us like a hawk as we make your drink. E! Please don't stare at us; it won't make your drink come any faster, and it makes us unnecessarily nervous. 12. Order while talking on your phone. Netflix Not only is it confusing when you try to talk to two people at the same time, but we also really try to be welcoming and personable, so it's just kind of rude. 13. Or just hand us your phone so the person on the line can order. Disney We don't know where your phone has been, and putting it on our face isn't something we'd love to do. 14. Wave your dollar in our face before you drop it in our tip jar. Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF NBC We have 100 things to do, and you waiting until we're staring at you so you can drop a dollar in our tip jar hangs us up. It's great to tip, but you shouldn't be tipping for recognition that you tipped. You should be tipping because we bust our butts and you had great service and a delicious coffee! 15. Order from a secret menu. FXX We don't know any of those recipes. They aren't in our training. Please come prepared with the recipe, and we can probably make it for you, but don't expect us to know all of them by heart. 16. Try to scam us with a makeshift latte. Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Fox Yeah, we know exactly what you're doing when you order three shots of espresso in a huge cup of ice. You're going to go to the condiment bar, empty our entire carafe of milk into your cup, dump sugar into it, and make your own iced latte. You're not being tricky. Though it may cost less, it's more work on our part because you usually wipe us out of sugar and milk at the condiment station. 17. Loudly exclaim that another coffee shop does something for you that we won't. NBC Training and recipes are pretty much uniform across each chain. If another store was actually doing something for you that we wouldn't, they weren't following company policy. Also, why wouldn't you just go there instead? 18. And yell when we've messed up your drink. Advanced Medien To err is human. If your drink tastes off, there is a 99% chance we'll apologize and remake it. Sometimes we make mistakes. Please don't yell at us.
