Starbucks baristas share questions they’re ‘fed up of’ hearing from customers

Have you ever wondered what it's like working at Starbucks?

The giant, which was founded in Seattle back in 1971, is the world's largest coffeehouse chain.

It operates globally in every continent in the world with over 340,000 employees.

So if you're a huge fan of the chain, the baristas have revealed some questions you should probably stop asking in a Reddit thread.

Writing on Starbucks Baristas forum, anonymous workers opened up about the most frustrating questions they receive daily.

The post read: "Baristas, I'm curious what questions are you really fed up of being asked by customers?"

And in case you're really wondering about a secret menu, you'll be shocked to know that it's not actually a thing.

One worker broke the news that staff aren't actually trained to do anything that's not on the official menu.

They wrote: "'Can I get [secret menu drinks?]' Without a recipe, expecting us to know what it is. We have no idea what it is."

Another employee shared their frustration when a customer asks for a "surprise drink".

The user said: "'Can you surprise me with your favourite drink?' And then I do… and they hate it, get annoyed and want a refund."

A third fumed about the fans who come in and ask for their water to be remade.

The person added: "Customers asking me to remake their free water because they are unhappy with the standard amount of ice.

"Also had one lady to tell me to wipe off the cup because it was 'too wet'. You know, because of condensation."

Another Starbucks worker claimed they got "fed up" of customers asking for the healthy drinks.

The former employee wrote: "'Is anything here healthy? Is coffee healthy'.

"'Can you please brew the tea in this refresher darker?' Like sis it's not even tea and the fruit pieces is what makes the colour.

"And 'Can you make the drink look like the picture?' I can't think of anymore but jeez these still haunt me today."
