If you've ever worked in retail, food service, or really any customer-facing job — you know the hell that is dealing with rude customers. One coffee shop employee who was fed up with dealing with customer temper tantrums came up with a brilliant hack for shutting them down.

The barista's "hack" is that anytime a customer raises their voice or complains about their order, the barista's co-worker pretends to be the "boss" and "fires" the barista on the spot while the customers cringe and try to retract their complaints, fearful that their petty grievances just cost someone their job.

The anonymous barista shared their story to Reddit's "Am I The Asshole" because one of their friends thought their coffee shop hack was a "mean prank" to play on the unsuspecting customers, so the barista had to wonder if they were the asshole in the situation.

The teenaged barista explained how they were fed up with rude customers that came into the coffee shop.

So sometimes customers will come in and just be angry about such little stuff. Like literally blow up about nothing. I dunno if theyre in a bad mood already and looking for someone to take it out on or what, but it's a lot... Like how sad so your have to be to be a grown-ass man taking your anger out on high school and college kids.
