The Dumbest Things New Baristas Have Ever Done At Starbucks

Starting a new job is never easy, and if you're a youngster trying to learn the ways of a brew master, you're bound to make an embarrassing mistake here and there.

An Instagram account called Barista Life, which mostly focuses on Starbucks barista struggles, posted a meme clowning on new hires, then challenged its following to "comment the funniest thing a new barista has ever done or said and tag who done did it."

Comment the funniest thing a new barista has ever done or said and tag who done did it #BaristaLife ??

The responses came pouring in, as over 600 people were quick to call out their fellow partners and reveal embarrassing moments.

Reading through the comments on the post, you'd be surprised how many baristas try to brew coffee with whole beans that weren't ground. It's also pretty funny how fellow baristas would mess with some of the new hires.

Check out the best of the bunch as we can laugh at the expense of noobs who did some ridiculous things:
