Starbucks Constantly Makes the Same Damn Mistake Every Time I Place an Order Through Uber Eats

Given the cost of their drinks, you would think they would at least include a straw!

I thought my love affair with Starbucks was over until recently rekindled thanks to a close friend, Nicholas “Nicky” Brendon (Buffy, Criminal Minds), an intervention-level Starbucks addict.

My orders are dull; I never add anything to my Venti-sized two-shot espresso hot coffees or my Peppermint Iced Mocha. However, Nicky orders eight espresso shots over ice in a venti cup with eight pumps of vanilla and a separate cup of half and half (to add the splash himself).

We both agree they best not forget the straws, which ruins the entire experience! Unfortunately, Starbucks employees either can’t read or ignore the “utensils needed” checked box and rarely bother including straws for drinks!
