Inventive Barista Is Living Definition Of Chaotic Good

Anyone who is able to spice up the workplace by not taking the job too seriously, while still getting the work done, and generally uplifting everyone's spirits is a welcomed addition to a team. It sounds like this barista is just the kind of person that you'll look forward to going to work with. At this point, I just want to read more of their names for other popular espresso drinks. For some more gold from Tumblr check out this Tumblr thread about an Ultima Online player who unleashed a nuclear revenge as a tavern owner on an unsuspecting town.

A quick wholesome Tumblr post about a barista who is pure positive chaos.

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.

Customer Demands Hotter Coffee, Manager Goes Full Throttle

This one honestly makes us a little nostalgic for our times working crazy jobs with people who didn't give a heck. There's a special place in our hearts for people who don't move like silent specters through the cogs of society, but make themselves seen and heard when a customer is being a real stick in the mud, like this boss who used an eye gag to get rid of some problem customers.

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.

Biker Customer Demands Cup Of Cream and Sugar, Ends Up Apologizing

Sometimes customers are so high on their own sense of confident entitlement that they forget an employee might actually be trying to help them out. What does it say when a road-weary biker is more willing to admit their ordering mistakes than this Karen who was furious after getting the cake she wanted.

Unforgivable, Outright Unpleasant Coffee Drinks

If you found yourself waiting in line behind a customer who ordered up one of these devilish concoctions, it's fair to say that you might find yourself with a momentary pain in your gut. Seriously, it's just wild what some people decide to drink. The baristas on the receiving ends of these orders must've been put at a loss for words.

Man Yells At Wife For Not Getting Him $2 Coffee

Man, it sounds like there's a whole lot more going on in this marriage than what we can partially make out at the surface level. We have a married couple that's been married for apparently eight years, and the guy's wife is somehow too cheap to dish out a couple bucks to grab him a nice holiday drink. Kind of a tough situation to find yourself in. Especially if you're already cranky from not having your daily caffeine fix. Would you say he's being out of line for his angry reaction, or is the emotional implosion well warranted? You be the judge.

Tumblr Thread: Customers' Mythically Powerful Coffee Orders

The life of a barista is a weird one. When every customer you have is someone who hasn't had their first coffee of the day, there's no knowing what kind of people can lumber in. Some take on the challenge and become a barista that's the living definition of chaotic good. Others just stand in awe and watch a 46-year-old woman drink 8 Red Bulls worth of caffeine in a single swig.

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.
