Man pulls gun on Starbucks worker when she forgot his cream cheese. Oh, also, she's the police chief's daughter

Jun 21st

You know I've heard a lot of discussions lately about which hills are worth dying on. I think we can all agree that a bagel is not one of those hills.

A Florida man (yes, the meme lives on) pulled a gun on a 23-year-old Starbucks worker for doing the unthinkable! She forgot to spread cream cheese on the man's bagel. And I know what you're thinking, "Well, that escalated quickly..."

"Police said the man became angry at a Starbucks drive-thru when they messed up his order [last] week," the Associated Press reported.

"He returned to the window, screaming at the employee. She asked whether he had paid for the cream cheese, at which point he became enraged and pulled out a gun."

Oh, by the way, the Starbucks worker just so happens to be the police chief's daughter. Whoops!

"She felt in fear of her life," the police chief said of her daughter. "It was upsetting to me to know that someone would go to that extreme not having cream cheese on his bagel."

The man faces several charges, including aggravated assault with a firearm.

We've all had our orders messed up. So, in case you're still wondering what you should do in that situation, allow me to give some advice.

Say something like, "I also ordered [insert missing thing]. May I have it on the side, please?" Also, try your best to resist the urge to have a gun in your hand (at least while speaking with the employee).
