Well here’s a story that will make white girls everywhere attempt to rig the Starbucks system as well.
Brad Halsey, a barista at Starbucks, shared his story in an email he sent to Kitchenette for their “Horrible Restaurant Customers” series; a story that involved one of his customers rigging the Starbucks system in order to never pay for another coffee again.
Brad explains that the unnamed customer purchased 365 Starbucks cards and registered each one with a different birthday, and now the customer gets a free birthday drink every single day.
“Even though I know exactly how he ‘beat the system,’ he pretends that his app is just malfunctioning and it magically gives him the same free birthday drink every day,” Brad explained in the email.
Now instead of just leaving with his free drink and feeling proud he tricked a company that overcharges for their coffee, the customer enjoys torturing Brad by being extremely particular about his order; the type of customer that you’ve rolled your eyes at behind in line before, and strongly considered murdering.
“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,” the customer says, according to Brad.
“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.”
This might be considered fraud, so it’s best to stay from doing something like this and just continue paying for it like ay other human that will continue to complain about how expensive their coffee is, and yet still keep buying some.
