A Starbucks employee shared how a customer’s very difficult order, which consisted of thirteen changes, made him want to quit his job.
Barista Josie, from the United States, took to Twitter to vent his frustration with a very complicated order of Venti Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino that a very demanding customer named Edward had placed.
Along with a click of the drink, a long note could be seen highlighting the 13 additions and modifications that had been requested – including an extra caramel fillet, seven pumpkins of caramel sauce and extra ice – all before having the drink mixed in duplicate.
The barista captioned the post: ‘We [today’s] episode of why I want to quit my job ”- and it didn’t take long for social media users to access the comments section reeling from the ridiculous demand.
“Definitely. It’s a bit of maintenance here. I imagine Edward is single, ”one wrote, while a second joked,“ I knew it had to be an app command. No one would order this out loud by making eye contact.

While many of us coffee lovers may ask for a simple request – like asking for our piping hot drink or an extra shot of espresso for that much needed caffeine fix – it turns out that a change is needed. not enough for some people.

“The few times I’ve been to Starbucks I’ve panicked and ALWAYS have a toffee shit even though I’d like to try something new. I’ve been doing this for years, haven’t even memorized the wtf size is a venti yet and you tell me ppl gets it like that !? Disgusting, ”one wrote.
A second commented: “I don’t even know what half of this stuff is, I worked there like 10 years ago when there weren’t that many options lol”, while a third added:
“Starbucks should have 2 lines: one for people who want real coffee, and one for anything narcissistic.
Another wrote: “How do people get these orders? How would they even know if you’ve missed a “pump” of any syrup you want? And what would something like that taste like? at this point, is it still coffee? it amazes me that people place orders like this.
