For you guys that go to Starbucks a question

Have you had any trouble with other customers because you use mobile order?

My DH and I have had several run ins with customers who didn't use mobile order and then get pissy when we walk in and grab our drinks and go. For me I've only had glares and people popping off about me cutting in line but DH's was a bit scarier. He said the guy already looked irritated that he was waiting so when DH walked up to the counter and got his drink and walked out the man really got irate. The man's drink was ready just after DH's so they walked out about the same time and he was still yelling and screaming about how ridiculous it was and then he started kicking his own truck! DH didn't stick around to see what else it was going to do.

So have you had any problems? I know Starbucks heavily advertised mobile order but DH and I have joked about getting poster board, making our own sign and taping it to the door of Starbucks so the ones that don't know about it will stop with the hatred towards the ones that do ;)

I make my own drinks at home, so no help here.

Won't help you much but you can still do mobile order and go through the drive through

Off topic but did you see they've rebranded the Chrysler Pacifica? It's now truly a van :-/

People are nuts, I've been flying off the handle a lot lately (from stress, meds or hormones don't know which yet) and even I wouldn't get mad about a coffee order!

I want to use the mobile order, but both locations I go to don't offer it.

I wish Caribou did that, that's kind of cool!

It reminds me of Chipotle's online ordering. People get really mad sometimes when I walk right up to the register, get my food, and leave. There's a big sign right in the restaurant advertising their online ordering, people.

I didn't know they had mobile order to be honest. But I don't watch alot of cable so I guess if they had a commercial for it I wouldn't have even seen it. We had that problem when I worked at sheetz. You could order your food online and then come pick it up. So we our stuff in what ever order popped up on the screen and people would get mad. But If that online order was place right before you came in and placed your order of course it would be done before you.. People would get so violent over it. It's like jeeze grow up its not a big deal.

I don't use mobile order and only go in when I'm in a hurry. The line always takes way longer. I wouldn't get upset with anyone using mobile order. That's their choice. That's like getting mad at chipotle for people that order online.

Thank goodness the one by my house offers it, heck all of them in my area do. It's a life saver in the morning when I'm running late but want coffee. I like being able to just run in and grab it and be on my way.
