A Starbucks customer went through the drive-thru and asked for “whatever” the car in front of her ordered. The drive-thru attendant decided to have a little fun at her expense.
Tina (@thatgoodstuff) starts off by telling the camera she’s a “little nervous” because the car in front of her took a long time to place her order, indicating it was a big, or complicated, order.
“A Caramel Crunch Frappuccino with 28 pumps of caramel sauce? And I think they wanted, like, five of them. Is that OK?” the barista says.
A stunned Tina replies, “They wanted how many?”
The barista repeats, “They wanted five.”
“Oh, shit,” Tina says while nervously laughing.
“It’s just a joke. They just got a Strawberry Refresher with light ice,” the barista clarifies.
Tina seems relieved. “OK, great. I’ll take that,” she says before the video cuts to her enjoying the beverage and rating it a six out of 10.

Tina’s video garnered over 16,000 views within a day, and viewers enjoyed the barista’s joke.
“I’d definitely mess with someone like this if I worked in fast food,” one said.
“Oh so he’s funny,” another viewer wrote.
While the drink the barista initially named may sound made-up, one viewer pointed out that he may have had some real-life inspo.
“Crazy thing is that people actually do order drinks like that,” they shared.
This is true. One barista shared that a tall coffee with like 20 Splendas is actually a pretty common order. That barista shared with the Daily Dot the most bizarre order she’s ever received: “A grande iced latte with no ice, 30 pumps of caramel, and she would order it twice a day.”
