Not the normal submission I know but I felt the need to share. All I can say is that I feel bad for the robin that had to make that drink.
Reblogging because I like making Alan cry
Wait, I think I’ve heard of this! It’s like this urban legend among Starbucks barristas - supposedly, this guy came into a store when the place was dead, and asked how he could make the most expensive Starbucks drink possible. Supposedly, the barristas decided to take him at his word, and they constructed this monstrosity - each version I’ve heard has a different absurd ingredients list, but this might be the actual Patient Zero right here - just because they were bored and the guy was really cool about it. Apparently he left them a fucking awesome tip, too, which I could believe since he clearly had a wad of cash on him at the time (as evidenced by the “change due” at the bottom of the receipt).
So actually, rather than make me cry, I’m sorta happy to have evidence that this story might be real!
EDIT: Rachel pointed out the date on this, which is only a couple of days ago, and I was told this story months ago. So maybe… maybe this is a case of an urban legend coming true via the telling of it, and someone wanting to make it real? Either way - fascinating.
I like that there are urban legends about coffee in the barrista circle.
Like there’s a crazy caffeine Knight’s Templar mystery novel in the making, right there.
