You gotta watch out for those Starbucks lovers.

Laura Roberts, a 19-year-old customer at Starbucks in London, received a rather flirty (and cheesy) message on her coffee cup from a male barista.

The unidentified employee scratched out the hot coffee warning and left this message: "Careful you're extremely hot" with an arrow and smily face.

Calm down, lover boy!

The thing is Roberts is engaged and her mom has Facebook—both big problems. Her mom posted a photo of the cup on the Sh*t London Facebook page.

The post received tons of backlash and angry comments, but Roberts is choosing to not identify the barista.

"It's my local Starbucks and he's lovely," she told MailOnline. "He always does it."

"That day I sent a picture of the cup to my mum, because she lives quite far away and she put the picture on Facebook."

Moral of the story: Keep mom off Facebook.

They may have moved on from controversial dresses and DIY lip enhancements, but now teenagers have a new craze to keep themselves busy: black magic.

A game similar to the Ouija Board called the “Charlie Charlie Challenge” has taken over Twitter, Instagram and Vine over the last few days, which has people using pencils to summon a Mexican demon that will answer any question you ask it.

So how does it work exactly?

First you place two pencils on top of each other in the shape of a cross creating four quadrants on a piece of paper.

Two of them are labeled “yes” and the other two are labelled “no.”

You must then recite the phrase “Charlie, Charlie, are you here,” (or “can we play”) and if the top pencil points towards “Yes” then – congratulations – you have successfully summoned a demon!

Charlie will answer any important life question you wish to ask, including which member of One Direction you’ll eventually marry.

Because apparently Mexican demons have a lot of free time on their hands.

All you have to do is change the options in the quadrants to whatever you wish to know. Just remember to say “Charlie Charlie can we stop” when you’re finished, or else you will leave a portal to Hell open inside your home.

An alternate version of the game involves two players each holding 3 pencils in the shape of a rectangle. If the pencils move up or in, it is considered a “yes” response, and if they move down or out, it’s a “no.”
