This post is kinda in relation to the last post. Please don’t come in and watch porn on your computer. In front of a giant window. That leads to the patio.

Starbucks Tip #31
People have the rights to their own opinions, but we can’t kick someone out of our store because you don’t agree with their anti-Obama sticker on the back of their computer.
Starbucks Tip #30
Every now and then we have issues with our espresso machines and they don’t pull shots right. Don’t complain that we are taking forever when we are trying to make you a drink that doesn’t taste right.
Starbucks Tip #27
sarahwatson10: Dumping any liquids into a trashcan is not a good thing especially hot drinks. Bags leak and those liquids splash around causing more clean up for us.
Starbucks Tip #29
At least at our store, we quad bag our trash cans and take out two bags at a time since the bags tend to leak easily. Please don’t start throwing trash way in the middle of me putting bags in the can and please don’t put your half full drinks into the cover that is set off to the side!
Starbucks Tip #28
Dumping liquids into the trash cans aren’t cool. Bags leak and splash in the can and whatever holding it,
Starbucks tip #27
Treat receipts can only be used on the same day.
Sorry about the lack of post lately guys!
Starbucks tip #26
While it is summer and the weather has turned warmer coming in to the store in beachwear isn’t appropriate.
Starbucks Tip #26
Refills on drinks are only for brewed coffee, iced coffee, and iced teas. Anything else you have to buy another drink.
Starbucks Tip #25
Please don’t ask us to ring things up separately while having a line. Yes, we understand that you would like more stars, but it causes the line to back up.
Starbucks Tip # 25
Telling us that a cup of coffee isn’t hot after you’ve had to wait on the coffee to brew is not a smart thing to tell us. Chances are you put to much creamer in.
Starbucks Tip #24
If you are running late for work, errands etc. please don’t come in and complain that we are taking forever or we aren’t fast enough. It’s not our fault that you are in a hurry.
Starbucks Tip #23
Parking straight is not that difficult. Even if you are just coming in, getting a drink, and leaving please for the sake of others pull into a spot straight. And no you may not park in the area where people come in and out.
Starbucks Tip #22
Oh, you like to masturbate in the mornings before work? That’s cool, just don’t do it in our bathroom with the door unlocked!
Anonymous asked: I seriously love all of your tips! As a starbucks barista, I can't stress enough about everything youve posted so thanks so much!
Starbucks Tip #21
Saying you want a skinny latte with no syrups doesn’t make it a skinny latte. All that makes it is a nonfat latte.
karmavocado asked: I have an interview for a barista position at Starbucks tomorrow... I'm nervous as all hell, I don't know anything about making these drinks, but I'm willing to learn as quickly as I can. Any tips?
Anonymous asked: i can't wait until starbucks finds out who runs this blog, because chances are, you're going to be fired. i work at another chain restaurant, and the last thing you want to do is create a blog specifically to complain about the company's customers. i realize that customers can be really dumb and frustrating, but suck it up, YOU are the one that needs the job.
Anonymous asked: Oh my god I love you and your tumblr. I can relate to this so much. So much love!!
Starbucks Tip #19
If you have a question.ASK. It is our job to know what’s in drinks, what they should taste like, and what they are comparable to at other stores. Also, if you are sincerely asking a question, and a barista is rude to you, tell the manager. Most baristas are helpful, but if they feel they are being taken advantage of, then they will act accordingly.
Starbucks Tip #18
If you don’t like your drink, your drink was not made properly, or on the off chance you want to admit that you may have ordered wrong just politely ask the barista to remake your drink and you can walk out with a smile on your face. If your drink is not to your taste, don’t go all over town saying how “disgusting” Starbucks drinks are. Most likely, you ordered the wrong...
Starbucks Tip #17
Don’t stand in line without your purse/wallet/moneyholder and then get up to the register, order your drink, and inform us that you need to get your purse out of your car. I understand actually doing this on accident, but you should get out of line and go get it as soon as you realize it’s not there. We are not going to start making your drink while you walk out to your car, we are...
Anonymous asked: here's a tip: never order espresso from starbucks since its awful.
Starbucks Tip #16
If you are a regular at another Starbucks please don’t come in to our store and expect us to know what you order, much less how the other store makes it for you in a particular way.
Starbucks Tip #15
There is a trenta sized cup that we offer in iced teas and iced coffee. We can not make any other drinks in that size. And please don’t tell us that another person or store did it for you.
this-is-a-dream asked: Oh that post where you say not to stand on the side and tell the barista how to make the drink, this one barista kept messing up my drink and when I pointed it out, he bitched at me and then shoved the drink in my hands... :(
Starbucks Tip #14
Don’t complain to us about how “broke” you think you are. We are working at a coffee shop, and not making very much, while you stand there in your $100 shoes, $200 sunglasses, holding a Coach purse, wearing MAC, and I saw about $600 bucks in your purse. Most of us have to steal food from work and you are mad because your husband/daddy won’t buy you a new bmw… you...
Starbucks Tip #13
If you can see that I’m making a boatload of drinks, and that the oven is all the way on the other side of the store, don’t ask me where your stupid bagel is when I hand you your drink. I’m over here making drinks, and that barista down there next to that big, hot, silver metal thing is the one toasting your over-priced bagel.
Starbucks Tip #12
Tell us your order, not your friend. Even if I can hear what you told them, I’m gonna ask you to say it to my face. We are baristas, not eavesdroppers.
Starbucks Tip #11
Don’t send your children in to order your drinks for you. please. we’re begging you.
Starbucks Tip #10
Making a hot drink into an iced one or an iced drink into a frappuccino is not as simple as pouring it into a blender or over ice. Please make sure you specify what type of drink you would like.
Starbucks Tip #9
Don’t stand at the hand-off plane and tell us how to make your drink. We know how things work, we make these drinks all day, we can read what’s marked on the cup, and you are not impressing anyone.
Starbucks Tip #8
Please don’t try to get information about other baristas out of us, if they didn’t tell you then they probably didn’t want you to know. Also, it’s rude and creepy.
Starbucks Tip #7
It is not Starbucks standard to give customers the extra from their frappuccino. You paid for 16 ounces, that’s what you are going to get. Adding “I’ll take the left overs in a small cup with whipped cream and toppings” to the end of your order is only going to make me want to painfully measure out the ingredients so there is none left over. also, we like to drink the...
Starbucks Tip #6
If I have my hand ready to take your money/card, please don’t just toss your money on the counter. On the flip side, just because you can spit out your 10 word drink quickly doesn’t mean I can ring it up that fast so please don’t shove your money in my face.
Starbucks Tip #5
You are the last person to order a drink in a long line of people. Please do not come over to the bar and ask if the next drink I’m putting out is yours. It’s not going to be yours.
Starbucks Tip #5
Yes I am a new employee, but please don’t get upset with me if I don’t quite remember your drink and/or name yet. Especially if you can’t tell me what it either.
Starbucks Tips #4
If you are on your phone when you walk up to the register, don’t expect a warm greeting.
Starbucks Tip #3
No! You may not take money from our tip jar to make up for the 3 cents you are short for your drink. Either give me more money or get a smaller size.
Starbucks Tip #2
We call it tall, grande, venti, but please feel free to call small, medium, and large. We’ve had the “Your sizes confuse me” talk 5 times already today.
Starbucks Tip #1
If you can’t pronounce the name of the drink, you probably shouldn’t order it.
