Depending on where you are (or even in the more rural places), Starbucks just has an uncanny knack for attracting massive crowds, and its fair share of impatient customers. This video from TikToker @a_problem_like_maria does a terribly effective job at portraying just what kind of busy chaos can ensue a mere 10 minutes after Starbucks has opened. Let's just say that this video should be shown to any Starbucks customer who has been possessed by inconsiderate, downright rude impatience. That's a literal sea of tickets right there.

Barista Gets Revenge With 10 Syrup Pumps, Customer Loves It

Everyone's morning "coffee" ritual is a little different, and for some that means an ungodly amount of syrup slammed into their veins like it was being pushed in by a train. This barista thought they were getting revenge on a bad customer by seriously overdoing things, but as it turns out, that customer could look the grim reaper in the eye voids and say "the sweet embrace of death isn't saccharine enough for my tastes, Mister Jingly Bone Man." For another tale from the café, here's a customer who demanded hotter coffee so the manager went full throttle.

TikToker @torivile, made some waves on the internet after posting a video where she's shown exposing Starbucks for their store-bought lemonade and syrups. Honestly though, the reality is that every store can hit their low points where they simply run out of supplies. You wouldn't normally expect such a development from a place like Starbucks, but oh well, here we are.

Aggressively Excessive Orders From Starbucks Customers

If you've ever worked a customer service job you're likely familiar with the series of daunting demands, entitlement, and other kinds of stressful nonsense from customers that can fall into one shift. Starbucks really brings the wild ones out. Some people just act like animals and take out all the emotional turmoil they're experiencing from their own life situations on the very folks in stores/restaurants/etc that are just there to help them. It's a gross cycle, and hopefully one that stops altogether, sooner than later. 

With all that being said, we couldn't say that these drink orders are exactly rude, but they are extra. Would really suck to be waiting in line behind a few of these orders. But it'd be even worse to have to make them. Our hearts go out to any baristas that field these kinds of orders.

Customer Asks for Extremely Hot Tea, Actually Accepts It

Customers have a long and storied history of asking for things that will actively do them harm, like this Karen who wanted donuts straight out of the fryer oil. The thought of giving a customer an extremely hot cup of liquid harkens back to the reality of the McDonald's hot coffee case, which no person working at a coffee place wants to repeat. Anyway this lady asked for some real hot tea and she got it.
