We get it, coffee is important. We also get that nobody wants to queue for it. When it’s 7:00am and your body is screaming for your morning java fix, there’s nothing worse than being stuck in a slow-moving line at Starbucks.
So, it’s no surprise that some people might be a bit testy, like this mom, who took to social media to vent her frustration and accidentally went viral for all the wrong reasons.
Posting a photo of her coffee cup to Twitter, she said: “Moms should get a fast pass to the front of the line at coffee shops.
“Honey, you’re 22 & slept 10 hours last night? Get to the back of the line.”
And it’s fair to say, the internet has feelings about this “suggestion.”
Moms shouldn’t be spending money at a coffee shop anyway because it’s expensive and that money should be going to your kid’s college fund.
Look, I can be a judgmental snob too.

And it wasn’t long before people noticed the similarity between this woman’s tweet and the infamous “can I speak to the manager?” meme.
This right here is the “can I speak to the manager” starter package – now reduced to only $7.99!

Others weren’t happy that she was stereotyping Gen Y as lazy
When I was 22 I was in medical school and never slept 10 hours a night https://t.co/7o6aGqazhF

I could count on ONE hand the amount of times in my 20s I’ve slept 10 hours.

Just another thing to blame millennials for – queues in coffee shops.
Some made their own signs honoring those they felt deserved it more

While fellow mom claimed people were “triggered” and couldn’t take a joke, ironically, in a tweet in which she seem fairly triggered herself
IF I SEE ONE MORE ANGRY TWEET ABOUT THE COFFEE FAST PASS GIRL. IT’S CALLED A JOKE PPL. IT’S A JOKE. SHE DOESN’T REALLY WANT TO CUT PEOPLE IN LINE FOR COFFEE. SHE WAS TRYING TO MAKE YOU STUCK UP WET BLANKETS LAUGH BUT IT’S 2018 SO OF COURSE YOU’RE TOO BUSY BEING #TRIGGERED INSTEAD

At least she didn’t call anybody a snowflake. Although, she was right about the uncalled for mom-shaming some tweeters seemed to feel was necessary.
Maybe we should all just brew our own coffee home instead – it’s quicker and you don’t have to deal with other people.
