My Starbucks Caramel Macchiato Was Divided, Conquered

On his blog, Phillyman says Starbucks screwed up his Caramel Macchiato by pouring all the caramel into one cup, then placing the cup containing the rest of the drink inside the caramelized container.

He writes:

I got back in my car and started to drive back to my work. The first sip of my drink and I noticed something was off, but hey maybe its just me. I continue to drink away and notice that I can not taste any caramel at all, but yet I see it in the bottom. I finally found out why I could see the caramel but not taste it. The stupid clerk who I will refer to as a clerk because he is surely not a barista…..put the caramel in a SEPARATE cup! Yes that is right, he filled the bottom of my cup with caramel…..then put another cup on top of the caramel…..then filled the cup with ice, milk and espresso.

What’s the craziest way a barista or bartender has screwed up your drink order?
