If This Is On Your Cup, It's Code For 'You Pissed Off Your Starbucks Barista'


Being a barista is both ridiculously stressful and crazily underpaid. So, you've gotta get your lols wherever you can.

Now, we know how they get their cheap thrills.

A Starbucks barista revealed on Reddit that she slaps stickers over the siren (or mermaid?) on the coffee cups, so that it ruins people's Instagram photos.

That green symbol really is the key ingredient for idiots who get off on uploading overly-filtered photos of their beverages. (FYI, no one cares what you're drinking.)

This dastardly barista wrote,

My petty joy is putting stickers on the siren logo when annoying teenagers order millions of fraps at once so their Instagram posts are ruined ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ it's the little things.

That's both cruel and funny. It really is the little things in life.

So, there you have it: If you get a sticker on your iced coffee, you've probably angered the barista.

The news just keeps getting worse for Starbucks lovers today.

Haven't you heard? Many stores are running out of coconut milk, and the world is crumbling at the seams.
