When you're standing in line at Starbucks and don't bat an eye at the person in front of you ordering a "tall, half-caff, soy latte at 120 degrees," you know something's wrong. We've all become so accustomed to the hyper-customization Starbucks offers -- and it's not our faults. Starbucks says it offers more than 80,000 drink combinations, the company's global chief marketing officer told HuffPost Taste. And that's to say nothing of the food items you can order in addition to your drink (which apparently you can eat every day of the year, if you "love being a human.")

With so many choices, you're practically shamed into having your own special order. And be aware: whatever your special order is, it definitely reveals something major about you.

What's next? Choosing what kind of fancy glass your drink comes in? The espresso beverages come in all different kinds of mugs on the website... Where are those choices in the store? If "120 degrees" is possible, anything is.

On the list of 80,000-plus variations, specifying for exact temperature might be up there on most ridiculous Starbucks drink orders, but we've seen some equally terrible ones. Here are some of the worst offenders from our readers.
