Is My Drink Ready Yet?

Anyone who has ever set a foot in a Starbucks knows exactly what this phrase means.  “Is my drink ready yet?”  “Is this my drink?”  Not only does it demonstrate how rude people can be, but disrespectful as well.

Most people come into a coffee shop, order their drinks and wait for the barista to call it out.  Not these folks.  They are in a hurry and too bad if someone in front of them ordered first, they are at the end of the bar now, so their drink should be as well.


Never mind that there were three people who ordered before them.  I actually had a guy who was two people behind reach around me to take my drink one day.  I looked at him and said, “well, if you like a caramel macchiato sugar-free at kids temp, feel free.”  He didn’t know how to react.  It was obviously not his drink, but dammit, he was in a hurry!

Then there is the ass that just has to change the drink order at the end of the bar once the barista has already made their drink and lie and tell the barista that the person taking the order screwed it up.  They know damn well that is bull, but the barista is forced to make the drink over because the customer is always right.  Which is garbage.  Some people just know that it costs extra for extra shots, so they pull that crap at the end of the bar.

Listen, folks,  act like you have some manners in public.  Don’t crawl up my ass while I order my drink, don’t try to take my coffee, don’t try to get over on the barista.  And don’t be RUDE!
