I ordered a Large!

United States
July 8, 2017 3:44pm CST
For $6.29, you would think the cup would be full. I mind as well have ordered a medium. - Ugh - I did not want to make a big deal but dang, I was cheated of like an inch of my/our smoothie! It's 96 degrees right now so, the drink is cooling! Do you get annoyed when your drinks are not topped off properly? *Ignore my nails

I get pissed off every time I order a drink at Starbucks. It always seems like the cup is only three-quarters full. The only time I get a totally full cup at Starbucks is when my friend Audrey is working. So I try to time my visits when I know she is going to be there. She always takes good care of me!

I don't get why employees are so stingy! I am paying retail! Had I been paying with a BOGO then I'd mind less. Glad your friend can hook you up when she is working.

@infatuatedbby I think they have to do that because that's the orders they are given from corporate headquarters. Maximize profits by not filling the cups up all the way. Very unethical. See, my flirting pays off, because had I never started flirting with Audrey, she would have never become my Starbucks sugar momma! hahaha

@moffittjc Yes, and not only that but they didn't give me my receipt. In fact they just toss it away immediately, there is a buy one get one coupon promotion on it too. I am sure they do it on purpose because NO ONE gets their receipt. Even before you can ask, it goes in the trash automatically so I didn't bother. Yes your flirting works that time around

@TiarasOceanView Yeah i can't really do anything about it once it's done. But that's a rip off since it's not a full large. I wouldn't want them to remake it either because it probably wouldn't be made thoughtfully

I have not had that happen. If it did, I am the kind of person to say something. Give it to me, and I will take it back for you. It will be so full, it will dripping.

I don't want to bother telling them to remake it. If I do, I always feel that they'll mess it up or it won't be good.

@infatuatedbby So it is not something that just comes out of a machine. They have to mix it up?

Dang, that's not right! And to answer your question, yes I do get annoyed for sure.. But very rarely do I buy smoothies, so I don't believe this has happened to me, has only really happened on soft drink orders from fast food, for example.

With soft drinks they can definitely top it off!
