Baristas are like their own species, separate from the rest of the human race. They’re typically mega hipster and have acquired a really bizarre (yet life saving) set of skills that make you wonder if your college degree was absolutely necessary. I often wonder what particular events lead to one becoming a Starbucks barista, but at the end of the day, they probably just need to be able to expend enough brain power to memorize your ridiculously complicated order (but not quite enough to properly spell even the most basic names). They’re the heroes we don’t deserve, definitely need, and probably piss off from time to time.
One Starbucks barista recently took to Reddit to explain how she gets back at obnoxious teeny boppers who probably couldn’t even handle the taste of black coffee and are only visiting the ‘Bucks for Instagram purposes.
Pure evil, or pure genius? I’d say both, but this punishment is probably well-deserved. I hate seeing thousands of 13-year-olds anywhere, but Starbucks is definitely the worst place to be when they take over. If I had a single maternal bone in my body, I might resonate with them or think they’re cute. But I don’t, which is why I stick to the drive-through or save myself five dollars by staying home and downing an entire pot of scalding Folgers like a normal person. But I also suck at Instagram, so what do I know? .
