Dear readers,

We’ve brought you a couple of roundups already about the craziness that happens in coffee shops. But anyone who’s spent any time in a coffee shop (or on this website!) knows that the supply of entitled customers and clueless employees never dries up.

Grab yourself a double-mocha caramel frappucino, sit down, and enjoy these 14 stories from our archives about chaos at the coffee shop!


People Who Have To Say They Are Fancy Aren’t – We wish this jerk would find somewhere fancier… and far, far away.

Not Espressing The Order Correctly – This story is so exhausting I think I need another cup of coffee.

Karma Has No Expiry Date – Instant Karma will come back to bite her in the a** – literally, we hope.

Service Has Room For Improvement – There are a lot of things that are weird in this story, but the author’s order isn’t one of them.

I’m An Old Bean – To be fair, I also look at teenagers and think, “What are you, twelve?”

H2-Ooooookay – Are they both new? To, like, coffee shops in general?

They Don’t Do Things By Halves – Oh, sure. Your lack of willpower is our fault.

Enough To Make You Foam At The Mouth – Hits from the comments: “I think all customer service jobs should have their employees wear body cams so that when stuff like this happens, you can just play it back and shame the customer instantly.”

No Refunds, No Ifs, No Peanuts – If you’re going to lie, you should know the facts first.

Trouble Is Cold Brewing – All signs point to stupid.

A Heavy-Handed Scam – Hits from the comments: “Thieves should get a frappe on their knuckles.” (Also, a shout-out to the commenters who taught me that a coffee being “too heavy” is a legitimate complaint!)

What Kind Of Ice Do They Have Where She Is From? – I don’t think I’d have known how to respond to this.

More Than 2% Of Customers Are Like This – Hits from the comments: “I’m just picturing that behind OP were three cows waiting patiently, so customer picked the middle one and OP got out the milking stool.”

Violating The Universal Amount Of Cream – This is just like having your eyes tested for glasses. But stupid.
