A Starbucks employee explained how a customer’s very picky order, which consisted of 13 changes, made him want to “quit” his job.
Barista Josie, from the US, went to Twitter to vent his frustration with a very complicated Venti Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino order placed by a very discerning customer named Edward.
In addition to a snapshot of the drink, there was a long note showing the 13 additions and changes requested – including extra caramel sauce, seven pumps of caramel sauce, and extra ice – all before the drink was double mixed.
The barista captioned the post: ‘On [today’s] episode of Why I Want to Quit My Job ‘- and it wasn’t long before social media users were shocked by the ridiculous question.
‘Gosh. That high maintenance there. I suspect Edward is single, ‘one wrote, while a second joked,’ I knew it had to be an app order. No one would order that out loud to make eye contact. ‘

Another, from California, told how a woman in the drive thru instructed them to put so much caramel drizzle in her ice cold latte

While many of us coffee aficionados may ask for a simple request – like asking for our drink extra hot or for an extra shot of espresso for that much-needed caffeine fix – it turns out that one change isn’t enough for some people.
In an effort to make Josie feel better, other baristas around the world also shared screenshots of the picky clients with whom they also had the displeasure to hang out with.
An employee who works for the same coffee chain shared a photo of a green tea cream Frappuccino with 29 additional changes and a caption that read, “This order comes in every other week.”
Another shared an image of a Caffè Misto who had an additional 30 requirements and said, “I’m raising you this.”

Elsewhere, a third recalled, ‘I was sitting behind a woman who had a ridiculous command and insisted it be heated to 37 degrees Celsius …’ not 36, not 38 – I’ll KNOW the difference. ‘
Meanwhile, social media users were shocked to learn how demanding some customers could be with their orders.
‘The rare times I’ve gone to Starbucks I panicked and ALWAYS got a caramel color even though I’d love to try something new. I’ve been doing this for years, I still haven’t even remembered the wtf buddy is a venti and you tell me ppl should get this this way !? Disgusting, ‘one wrote.
A second commented: ‘I don’t even know what half of that stuff is, I worked there 10 years ago when there weren’t that many options lol’, while a third added:
“Starbucks should have two rules: one for people who want real coffee, and one for whatever narcissistic b ****** t this is.”
A went on to write, “How do people come up with these orders? How would they know if you missed a ‘pump’ of any syrup? And how would such a thing even taste? Is this even coffee more at the moment? I am amazed that people take orders like this. ‘
