Oh no! My latte!


#3

Don’t worry–there’s another one just across the street.


#4

Now it’s a flatte.


#5

there’s a metaphor here, i just can’t figure out what it is.


#6

Tornado:
“I’ll have a Venti, Flat White. To go.”


#7

STILL waiting for my damn latte! wtf?


#8

Okay, tornados are really powerful…but somebody is going to jail.


#9

No kidding. Notice all sorts of other things right next to it that didn’t collapse like a house of cards.


#10

A better title would be “watch a floor while a Starbucks is flattened by a tornado in seconds.”


#11

This proves that god hates Kenny G.


#12

God’s judgement on the abomination of burnt coffee.


#13

Ooh I want to take you down to
Kokomo, we’ll get some starbucks and then take it slow
That’s where the wind will blow…down in Kokomo.

That’s a vortex of nope. I couldn’t live in an area with tornadoes can be a thing… technically it’s possible in the Austin area. We got a few tornado warnings early in the year but nothing came of it beyond the usual bad weather.

Jarrell isn’t too far north now


#16

Don’t speak such Careless Whispers.


#17

The bathrooms are always the safest spot. I don’t know why they don’t just knock down the bathroom walls and make the entire restaurant the bathroom.


#18

Wow! Angel Ramos deserves a big thank you. His actions may have saved some lives.


#19

I thought that was basically McDonald’s plan.

Is it me, or does it look like the construction on this Starbucks was unconscionably terrible?
