Anybody in the food-services industry who does this to their customers is a cunt who deserves to lose their jobs. Not only is it just down right wrong, but it could be dangerous to somebody who has particular dietary requirements.
Having had the unfortunate experience of living with somebody who works at Starbucks, I have no doubt that this shit happens.
i’m lucky enough to have encountered a barista malicious enough to do this to me - i ordered a decaf latte with soy milk and they gave me fully caffeinated with cow’s milk. cue hours of panic attacks and feeling sick. ugh
Why do some baristas think its adorable and clever to dick around with people’s specifications? They can kill someone with allergies with this shit.
I get the dirtiest looks when I order anything with soy there. I’m Lactose Intolerant, and this bitch decided to give me whole milk in my macchiato. I took one taste and handed it back to her. She looked at me like I was crazy and said “What? Something wrong?” I looked her dead in the eye and said “Well yes actually, I ordered and was charged for soy milk. This has whole milk, I want you to re make it and get me a manager so I can discuss how your company thinks it’s funny to hand out purposefully wrong drinks when the person they’re handing them to gets sick when those requirements aren’t met.” She stood there for a second looking at me confused and I sighed and said “I’m lactose intolerant bitch, fix my fucking drink before I get you fired on health code violation.”
As a lactose intolerant too, I know how you feel. Such a pity I ordered a soy capuccino and didn’t noticed this bitch added whole cow milk instead because my nose was all stuffy, I just couldn’t taste. And I guess it wasn’t an accident since she gave it to me with a full smile on her face.
I drank the whole thing.
My face instantly became red and itchy, my stomach ached, it got hard to breathe and I couldn’t feel a thing because of how swollen my fingers were. Plus, I suffered an asthma attack in front of everyone.
My boyfriend called an ambulance while crying like crazy, mom literally ran to the nearest pharmacy to get me an inhaler and my best friend was about to punch someone.
I slept in the hospital, with an oxygen mascara on my face and continuous medication. When I was finally able to leave the place, we took the whore to court, showing off proofs and more than enough witnesses to beat the shit out of her.
How all this ended, you might be wondering. Well, I tell you; we obviously won the case. She was instantly fired and had to pay over 1,500$. Plus, Starbucks rewarded me with endless coupons, discounts, free breakfasts… yeah, it all went smoothly.
ps: Not everyone is a skinny bitch. And well, if they were, it would be none of your douchebaggy bussinesses.
I’ve been a barista for Starbucks for almost 2 years now and I agree completely. Any barista that does this is horrible. People spend $3 to $6 on these drinks and I truly believe they should get what they ask for. I try my best not to judge people on what they order. A lot of people will order soy because they can’t have dairy OR they simply like the taste of soy. IT’S YUMMY. If people are willing to pay the extra 60 cents, who gives a fuck? I also don’t see anything wrong with ordering a skinny latte. What’s wrong with trying to be healthy and having a treat without racking up calories? It’s wrong to mess with people like this. Same with people ordering decaf. This is also important since many people can’t have caffeine for health reasons or they’re pregnant. So what if people are picky about their drinks? They’re paying a lot of money for their perfect tastey coffee and it’s not my place or any other baristas place to fuck around with it.
