Starbucks customer gets rude note

JACKSONVILLE, Fl (JAX) A Florida Starbucks customer who just wanted to enjoy his grande white mocha, got an unexpected note in place of his name. JAX in Jacksonville found this picture of the note that says “Diabetes here I come.”

The man who ordered the drink says that two of his sisters were diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, and the note brought many unpleasant memories of all the hospital trips and doctor visits they had to make because of it.

The customer left a note in response for the baristas that said, “My sisters have diabetes so… not funny.”

Starbucks says they are working with the employee who made the drink, but for now that person is still employed at Starbucks.
