is online ordering turning us into monsters? Starbucks order w 13 modifications enrages the internet

This weekend, a completely atrocious Starbucks order took Twitter by storm. So atrocious, in fact, that it set off a chain reaction of baristas sharing their own worst nightmare orders from customers.

"On todays episode of why i wanna quit my job," read the caption to the drink, a Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino altered heinously beyond recognition.

With a whopping 13 modifications, ranging from disgustingly sweet ("7 pumps dark caramel sauce" to plain inexplicable ("5 banana"???), the abomination was addressed to someone named Edward, who I can only assume is either a 5-year-old kid who stole his mom's phone, or a serial killer. This guy better have at least tipped handsomely (he almost certainly did not).

Don't you pay per flavor shot?

6. Wrote a post earlier, read an article and talking to friend tonight. I am not looking

into getting back to customer service. People were already angry and threatening, to an old woman. I am not looking forward to how people are behaving today. I don't wanna. Gotta be a better way, old and tired.

7. I'm not a coffee drinker--

But I remember offering to get a coffee from the Starbucks next door for a friend who was having to wait for an appointment. I thought, stupidly, it would be, you know, cream, no sugar, that sort of thing.

It took her 5 minutes to write down everything she wanted in that coffee-- cinnamon and chocolate shavings and who knows what else. I gritted my teeth and got it, but I have never offered again.

8. I worked as a barista but there were fewer choices then.

Thank GOD.

I don't get coffee out much, and if I do, I order either a.plain Americano with three shots (iced in summer) or a Peppermint Mocha around the holidays. I have that with nonfat milk, but you have to tell them what kind of milk anyway.

So why do I always end up in line behind someone who is getting drinks for four people, all complicated?
