Metro- Laura Roberts, 19, picked up her drink from Starbucks when she noticed ‘read it’, with an arrow, scrawled down the side.
The arrow pointed to a warning sign that had been censored to read: ‘Careful, you’re extremely hot.’
But it’s not the first time Laura has received advances from the Starbucks Romeo. She told MailOnline.
’It’s my local Starbucks and he’s lovely. He always does it.
‘That day I sent a picture of the cup to my mum, because she lives quite far away and she put the picture on Facebook.’
It was posted to S*** London Facebook page by her mum, Alex Blaine, who wrote: ‘Creepy barista writing inappropriate messages on my daughter’s coffee. Looks like son in-law material.’
In and of itself using the side of a coffee cup as a way to hit on a woman is not a firable offense. A little bit creepy, yeah, but not like "bolt the door" creepy, more like "awkwardly smile" creepy. All he really did was tell this woman she was pretty, and while his way of doing so likely doesn't have a high rate of success, it still something that most females like to hear. So no, I don't think they guys needs to be fired because he's a dork that can't find a normal way to let a woman know he's interested.
I think he needs to be fired because this idiot's little stunt covered up the disclaimer on a coffee cup. Goddamn it barista, you had one job! Okay fine, two jobs. Don't cover up the "Warning: HOT" that frees StarBucks from all liability and serve people their much needed morning 'pick me up'. Come on man! The old "the hot coffee doesn't say it's hot on the side" is the most famous frivolous lawsuit in the book. It's the frivolous lawsuit that opened Pandora's box of frivolous lawsuits. Half the blog topics I write about are directly related to the stupid bitch that made a million dollars off McDonald's by having shitty hand-eye coordination and an unparalleled ability to blame others for her misfortune. Is this smokeshow likely to spill her pumpkin spice latte that she just "absolutely CANNOT live without" all over herself and then come running back looking for reimbursement? Probably not, but you can't put your company at risk like that. Save your dorky gestures for when you are off the job, especially since StarBucks offers benefits now. Can't imagine you'd do to well in a job where you had to interact normally with clients.
Chances the girl below gives this guy the time of day outside of a forced business setting?
