The Messed-Up Reason Starbucks Baristas Are Putting Stickers On Your Cups


Sometimes, secretly sticking it to customers can bring so much joy to an otherwise terrible workday.

You know those order stickers that are sometimes on your Starbucks cup? If you’ve ever seen one stuck right on the cup logo and thought, “Damn it! This stupid sticker is ruining my Snapchat photo!” you’re not crazy. It is ruining your photo, and it might even be done on purpose.

Reddit user bemyfuse posted a photo of sticker-covered Starbucks drinks and said:

“My petty joy is putting stickers on the siren logo when annoying teenagers order millions of fraps at once, so their instagram posts are ruined ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ it’s the little things.”

It sure is the little things that make your day, and this is genius. With everyone constantly Instagramming, or Snapchatting photos of their Orange Drinks, Pink Drinks, Frappuccinos and Passion Teas, it’s not unusual to want to take those photos with the siren logo facing out. It’s only natural. It adds to the photo, really.

You can’t even really be mad. Are you going to complain to management that your photo-op was ruined? Hell no! What kind of Taylor Swift, snake-like complaining is that?

Since everyone caught on to the blatant name misspelling on cups, baristas probably needed a new way to get us.

Who knows what else they do, but this one is great and I’m giving the barista five clapping Shias for it:
