Good morning. I'm David Greene. Ever joke with a colleague about his or her coffee order? Going to Starbucks, David? Great. Bring me a venti, iced vanilla latte with extra ice and an extra shot. That's nothing compared to what a man in Dallas ordered. He's a member of the loyalty program and was entitled to a free drink.

It had 60 shots of espresso. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
