Starbucks Barista Draws Pentagram and "666" In a Beverage, and Other Funny Coffee Clerk Screw Ups
Being a barista may not be an ideal occupation for some — it's a fast-paced job that deals with preparing hot beverages. It seems the stress got to one Starbucks barista, who drew a pentagram and "666" in caramel syrup on the beverage of Louisiana teacher Megan Pinion, who posted a complaint to the Starbucks' Facebook page.
Pinion said she didn't have a chance to see who the satanic artist was because she was so upset with the incident. She said in The Raw Story report:
"I am a teacher in the public school system and if I were to present a child of atheist or pagan believers with a Christian art project I could be sued in a heartbeat," Pinion said. "I am of Catholic faith and would love to share in my beliefs daily. Fortunately I have enough common sense to present myself with professionalism and follow an ethics code. Perhaps that could be suggested to that particular location."
Preach, sister. We get it, baristas — times may get boring and customers may get testy, but it is necessary to purposefully offend your patrons? Pinion hasn't been the only one to take to the Internet after being offended by the coffee specialists' mistakes. The most common, and often hilarious, mistakes made by baristas are misspelling of customers' names. After scouring the Internet's outraged blogs, such as Starbucks Screw Ups and Starbucks Spelling, here are some of the worst examples of when baristas go rogue:
