There have been a lot of coffee shop freakouts, lately.
First, there was Amy and Samy from Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale, Arizona who gained national attention when they pissed off Gordon Ramsay and the rest of the world. Notable in that particular case is the fact that it's actually the owners who throw fits...against the customers.
Then, Broward County got the dubious honor of being home to the worst customer in the history of Dunkin' Donuts, when Taylor Chapman walked into the home of the coffee America runs on and decided to go on an epic tirade in retaliation for the fact that she wasn't given a receipt for her coffee the evening before. The woman, who sadly, has a history of mental illness, was declared the "worst person ever" by Gawker.
But leave it to Hollywood to make the coffee shop freakout bigger, badder, and more fun. They say you should always let a trained professional handle the job, so why not have Julia Louis-Dreyfuss do the ultimate coffee shop freakout?
Watch this freakout and enjoy (by the way, Jimmy Kimmel made her do it. We're sure the real Elaine Benness would never treat a barista so badly):
