On all of their hot drink cups, Starbucks has a message along the bottom that reads, "Careful, the beverage you're about to enjoy is extremely hot." Unfortunately, too many of us have received a drink with a few of the real warning words crossed out and we're left with a cup that says "Careful...you're extremely hot."
First of all, why leave the "Careful" part in the pickup line? That just makes it sound even more weird and creepy. Second of all, not only is it totally lame, it's also totally overdone.
Many people have posted their Starbucks pick-up cups on social media and now every barista that thought they'd come up with the most creative flirting tactic ever is scrambling to find something new to write on their cups.

At Starbucks in Amarillo, TX I was given a free coffee that had a secret message saying careful you're extremely hot. pic.twitter.com/XZBTFMmljw— Chris Janetzko (@CJanetzko) June 25, 2014
Seriously, though, why didn't a single one of them opt for the more simplified "you're extremely hot"?
