I work the Starbucks drive-thru — and I mistook a customer for a dog

Lifestyle /

Thanks a latte.

A TikToker claims she mistook a woman for a fluffy dog while taking an order at the Starbucks drive-thru.

Libby Owens, who goes by the username @mydadcallsmebilly on the social media platform, is getting roasted for her viral reveal. The five-second clip’s grande premiere Tuesday has driven over 775,000 views.

In the video, she films herself with her mouth agape, holding back a laugh, as she shares the so-called “dog” was just a woman wearing a fur coat.

“When I said, ‘Awwww do you want a puppuccino’ to a guy in the drive thru with a fluffy dog in the passenger seat, and he said, ‘That’s not a dog, that’s my girlfriend…’ and she was wearing a fur coat,” Owens noted in the text.

One Starbucks worker said that she mistook a woman for a dog at the drive-through.

The Post reached out to Owens for comment.

At Starbucks, a “puppuccino” is a small cup of whipped cream.

Owens is not alone in her fido fallacy, as her comments section was flooded with similar tail tales.

“One time I saw movement in the back seat and said, ‘Aw is that a dog?!” someone confessed. “And the person driving was like, ‘No that’s my child.”

Another divulged, “When I told a customer he had a cute dog and it was his CHILD crawling around in a brown jacket…”

“I asked a lady if she wanted a pup cup for her dog,,, it was a baby….” one user admitted.

Another seconded, “I literally did this but it was a purse 😭😭.”

Turns out the woman was just wearing a fluffy coat and was not, in fact, a dog.

One person even shared they were mistaken for Rover once in a role-reversal, claiming it “haunts” them “every single day.”

“This happened to me once, I was just wearing sweats, it does haunt me every single day that I live that I was mistaken for a dog,” they howled.

In other Starbucks news, one barista recently revealed that she accidentally made only decaf coffees during her three-month stint at the popular chain.

“When I worked at Starbucks and accidentally made every drink decaf instead of blonde roast for 3 months because I got the buttons confused,” the TikToker noted at the time.

A worker in Miami, meanwhile, reported being threatened with a gun for forgetting to put cream cheese on someone’s bagel.
