A STARBUCKS barista is tired of customers trying to get more coffee for less money, and she’s resisting.
She claims that when they try to trick her into drinking a bigger drink, she charges them – but people have mixed feelings about that.
“[Point of view]: You order iced espresso with milk, expecting me to fill it up but instead I tell you anything over 4 [ounces] is a barista,” the barista wrote on one videotapes hers is holding a Starbucks drink.
“Yes, I’m so small,” she wrote in the video’s caption.
There are many so-called “hacks” intended to help Starbucks customers get the exact drink they want for a lower price.
Eg, a trick similar to the one that TikToker mentioned ordered 3 espressos in Venti cups on ice.
The customer asked for more milk and then asked for five pumps of pumpkin spice syrup.
The customer revealed her drink cost only 3.66 USD.
If she ordered one of the pumpkin-spiced drinks off the menu, she’d pay nearly $10, double what she concocted.
Another Starbucks Hack instructed people to order large drinks in venti cups.
“To get the most out of this trick, I always put ice cream on top and they fill the top,” noted the person who shared the hack.
It’s these workarounds that the TikToker who shared the “small” video absolutely absolutely hates – but the Internet has been ripped apart.
“I am one of them,” commented another bartender.
“It’s a SPLASH of milk. Order a latte if that’s what you want.”
“Girl if those are the rules then those are the rules,” added a united second user.
“How do I know you want a coffee when [you] order espresso on ice? ‘ another person asked.
However, a fourth concurr said: “You all act as if you go to any other fast food place and expect to get something free.
Still, others weren’t sure why bartenders wanted to help a corporate company make more money than they did.
“People care so much about their work as if American companies care about them,” argued one user.
“Why would you go for such a hard-working girl company?” another asked a question with a crying emoji.
“Make sure money doesn’t go out of your pocket, why would you care,” said another.
However, in an effort to help both bartenders and customers, a previous employee shared Beverage workers hate working and reveal a money-saving tip.
In addition, one customer displayed correctly How do they get two drinks for the price of one at their local Starbucks.
