[WATCH] Is Your Fancy Morning Latte Actually Costing You $1 Per Sip?
5 Exceptionally Rad Texas Airbnbs To Add To Your Bucket List
[/caption]Millennials love to make fun of boomers for suggesting they should quit doing things like stopping for Starbucks on the way to work if they ever want to be able to afford a house. I don't think passing on your morning coffee is really going to make much of a difference in the grand scheme of things, but TikTok user @jexxss begs to differ in a video she recently posted, revealing her morning iced latte cost her roughly $1 per sip, and she only got a grand total of 8 sips.
Wowza. Lots to unpack here.
First of all, counting your sips of coffee seems a little unhinged, but I digress.
She pointed out in her video that her iced latte from a local coffee shop was full to the brim with ice, and that the total price came out to a little over $7, plus, she tipped the barista an additional dollar.
If any of this sounds familiar to you, you might enjoy her video. Check it out below:
It doesn't really seem worth it to pay $8 for 8 sips of coffee. I remember when I was a barista. All of our iced lattes were filled to the top with ice. It's pretty standard practice, whether you are at a mom-and-pop shop or a big chain.
Are the boomers onto something with the whole skip-the-coffee thing? Are we just in denial that we are frivolously wasting our money on fancy chai tea lattes made by the cute boy with the dreads? Who knows...
I have a feeling we won't stop buying them anytime soon, and even if we did, we'd probably still never be able to afford a house.
