What do millennials do without the Starbucks app? We found out on Monday.
I’m over here still using checks at Walmart, but apparently, other millennials are so accustomed to mobile apps that let you pay for things purchases that when the Starbucks app was down for maintenance during the Monday coffee rush this morning, no one knew what to do with themselves.
Fortunately for many of those who were unable to use their Starbucks app, not to mention the rest of us, the Twitter app still worked so we could all have a few laughs over the silly situation.
In San Diego, customers came unprepared to pay, apparently having forgotten what life was like like, two years ago:

One customer got a jarring response to her attempt to order her drink:
Thought I would pre order myself a Starbucks on the app because I really needed the caffeine… the universe had other plans pic.twitter.com/vBBcWhjVD9

Another couldn’t even celebrate her non-birthday:

Some customers got to experience a throwback to the Dark Ages:
My Starbucks App is down for maintenance. This must be what addicts feel like when their dealer won't answer the phone.
I guess I have to wait in line & pay with a credit card? Do people still do that anymore? Feels like I'm wasting so much precious time unless I mobile order.

Just like Jesus used to do:
My @Starbucks app isn’t working so I had to pay for my coffee with a credit card just like Jesus used to.

At the end of the day, there were still many hungry and un-caffeinated snowflakes to whom today will forever live in infamy:
Hey @Starbucks your app is broken and caused me to have the most embarrassing morning where I couldn’t afford my damn breakfast because all I had was my phone because my purse was in the office. So I’ll just send you my therapy bill, cool?
