This TikToker shared how frustrated she was after getting kicked out of an establishment because of what she wore. She isn’t an employee, so she believed she didn’t need to adhere to their dress code!
A Dress Code?
People are usually asked to adhere to and follow a dress code in formal settings like work or events. At times, fancy restaurants also have them.
However, have you ever heard of Starbucks or other fast food chains and coffee shops having one?
Even though we won’t associate dress codes and formal wear with Starbucks, it’s precisely what happened to this woman when she picked up an order. She then shared her frustrating experience on TikTok.
The woman, Ezzy, was wearing a cropped tube top when she entered the Starbucks on her college campus. Then she was asked to leave the establishment if she wouldn’t change or a “full shirt.”
She said, “I just got dress-coded at Starbucks. Like, are you for real?”
Ezzy explained that she was wearing a yellow tube top and a gray skirt. Then, the moment she entered the establishment, an employee approached her.
The employee told her she needed to wear a “full shirt” to enter the premises. She told OP, “Yeah, I’m so sorry. It’s just that since this is an establishment, it’s required that you wear a full shirt.”
However, for OP, they were way out of line.
She said, “I was like, ‘B****, I’m not your employee. Like, I don’t work for you. I’m an adult!”
Sticking To Her Choice
In her TikTok post, Ezzy included a clip showing off her outfit in the mirror. She said, “I guess they really don’t want to see bad b****** win.”
A Confident Queen
Despite the rocky start to her day, Ezzy won’t let anything ruin her day and confidence.
She said, “Let me tell you one thing, it’s not gonna stop my shine today. I just look too cute.”
TikTokers’ Mixed Reviews
There were a lot of people commenting on Ezzy’s post. However, there seemed to be a mix of reviews.
On the one hand, many think the dress code is “ridiculous.” On the other, some believe Starbucks had the right to implement it since it was a private establishment.
It’s Just Ridiculous!
Many users sided with Ezzy and said that she should be able to wear what she wants.
This TikToker commented, “That’s ridiculous; you should be able to go into a public setting without worrying about if your outfit fits their dress code.” Another wrote, “You looked very cute, and I loved the outfit from top to bottom, no lie!”
I Don’t Understand!
There were also a couple of users who couldn’t seem to understand why Starbucks would even bother Ezzy with what she was wearing.
“Your outfit looks really cute! I don’t know why Starbucks was giving you s***! For everyone giving you s*** in the comments, don’t pay any mind to them; they’re jealous,” said one TikToker.
Even so, a good handful of TikTokers thought Starbucks had the right to kick her out if she didn’t adhere to their rules.
One wrote, “It’s a private establishment. They can enforce whatever dress code they want.” Another exclaimed, “Have some shame; what you’re wearing is tacky.”
People also called Ezzy out for acting entitled. They said she had no right to question what a private business put out as rules.
One pointed out, “Are you seriously that entitled? A private business can ask you to leave.” Another user agreed and said, “Ever heard of no shirt, no shoes, no service? It’s a thing, always has been.”
It’s Only Right
Some people said Ezzy deserved how she was treated.
This user said, “When you dress poorly, you get treated poorly.” A woman then said, “You cursed at and were rude to a person who was just trying to do her job. She didn’t deserve your attitude. You deserved to be kicked out. Would you have liked a customer treating you like that for just doing your job?”
You Just Want Attention
People called Ezzy out for posting the video, too. For them, Ezzy just wants the internet’s attention.
A man pointed out, “You’re just looking for attention.” Then another said, “Can’t stand the unwarranted confidence of people like this. No shame and no self-awareness. The employee was respectful. It’s a very common policy. Starbucks reserves the right to refuse service or entry.”
Who do you think is wrong in this situation? Was Ezzy overreacting?
