A Starbucks barista recently shared a story about his worst customer. This guy bought 365 Starbucks cards and registered each one with a different birthday. That means he gets a free birthday drink EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR!
Except February 29th.
That’s annoying, but you have to see his daily order to get a real appreciation of the almost artistic way he goes about being terrible.
From the story:
Not only does Mr. X get a free coffee every day, but he’s particular about his order, the barista says. He orders his iced quad Venti vanilla white mocha with heavy cream instead of milk. So first, he asks Halsey for a venti cup and a marker.
Then he “draws lines and arrows and writes all over the cup,” instructing Halsey to get his order perfectly jotted down as follows:
Two pumps of white mocha here, then add five pumps of vanilla. That should take us to this line here where you’re gonna add cold heavy cream up to this ridge here … it should be halfway between this line and this line. Make sure to add the heavy whipping cream before the espresso; it changes the taste if you do it out of order. Then add your four shots — three regular and one long shot. That long shot is important, since you guys reformulated your machines, it’s been hell trying to get my drink right. That long shot helps balance it. Then stir it for me, Mister Brad. Now do me a favor and add ice to the top there and it’ll be easy as pie. I’m not picky so don’t worry about shaking it or anything like that.
