👋 Before you go

A TikToker showed off an impressive stack of stickers on her fridge—revealing how many Starbucks drinks she had purchased over time—leading a number of commenters to be rubbed the wrong way by what they felt was a bougie display.

The video comes courtesy of creator T (@fakery.unlisted), and getting an astounding count of more than 4.6 million views since putting the eight-second video up on TikTok on Mar. 10. In it, the creator pulls a Starbucks drink with a domed lid out of a bag, pulls off a white sticker on top of the lid, and adds it to an impressive stack of stickers on the side of a fridge.

That answers the question in the on-screen caption — “Honey, what are those stickers on the fridge?” — but raised other questions for commenters.
