BooBoo the dog on TikTok.

Some days, nothing can stand between us and our Starbucks fix. That goes for pups too.

Starbucks offers canine guests a dog-friendly cup of whipped cream, otherwise known as a "puppuccino." No caffeine is involved, but most dogs lap it up and become as addicted to them as you or I would to a pumpkin cold brew.

One impatient pup named BooBoo couldn't wait to get his paws on the sweet treat, and his delightful drive-thru stunt has now gone viral.

The video, which has blown up on on TikTok, shows what looks to be some kind of black lab (a big black lab, at that) already halfway in the drive-thru window. Laughter, "uh-ohs" and a bunch of "ohmygods" can be heard as BooBoo stumbles, determined to get inside.

Finally, the barista's hands can be seen hoisting BooBoo all the way through, until all we see is his wagging tail. Now that's what I call customer service.

Though the video did spark a small debate about health code violations and pet responsibility, most of the commenters were charmed and had fun remarks:

"'He said 'y'all hiring? I work for free puppuccinos"

"BooBoo said, 'I also need a side of pets and hugs with my puppuccino, please."

"He's like 'what's taking yo so long Cassandra, give me the damn puppuccino."

"I am 100% OK with being stuck in the line if I get to see this."

Even a barista commented: "if a dog did this to me when I worked the window, I would probably cry from overyjoy.

We're all hoping that BooBoo enjoyed his "drink," and completely empathize with his impatience. After all, everyone becomes an animal while waiting in the Starbucks line, don't they?

Being married is like being half of a two-headed monster. It's impossible to avoid regular disagreements when you're bound to another person for the rest of your life. Even the perfect marriage (if there was such a thing) would have its daily frustrations. Funnily enough, most fights aren't caused by big decisions but the simple, day-to-day questions, such as "What do you want for dinner?"; "Are we free Friday night?"; and "What movie do you want to see?"

Here are some hilarious tweets that just about every married couple will understand.

A man told me gun laws would create more 'soft targets.' He summed up the whole problem.

As far as I know, there are only two places in the world where people living their lives are referred to as 'soft targets.'

Only in America are kids in classrooms referred to as "soft targets."

On the Fourth of July, a gunman opened fire at a parade in quaint Highland Park, Illinois, killing at least six people, injuring dozens and traumatizing (once again) an entire nation.

My family member who was at the parade was able to flee to safety, but the trauma of what she experienced will linger. For the toddler with the blood-soaked sock, carried to safety by a stranger after being pulled from under his father's bullet-torn body, life will never be the same.

There's a phrase I keep seeing in debates over gun violence, one that I can't seem to shake from my mind. After the Uvalde school shooting, I shared my thoughts on why arming teachers is a bad idea, and a gentleman responded with this brief comment:

"Way to create more soft targets."

Paul Rudd in 2016.

Passing around your yearbook to have it signed by friends, teachers and classmates is a fun rite of passage for kids in junior high and high school. But, according to KDVR, for Brody Ridder, a bullied sixth grader at The Academy of Charter Schools in Westminster, Colorado, it was just another day of putting up with rejection.

Poor Brody was only able to get four signatures in his yearbook, two from what appeared to be teachers and one from himself that said, “Hope you make some more friends."

Brody’s mom, Cassandra Ridder has been devastated by the bullying her son has faced over the past two years. "There [are] kids that have pushed him and called him names," she told The Washington Post. It has to be terrible to have your child be bullied and there is nothing you can do.

She posted about the incident on Facebook.

“My poor son. Doesn’t seem like it’s getting any better. 2 teachers and a total of 2 students wrote in his yearbook,” she posted on Facebook. “Despite Brody asking all kinds of kids to sign it. So Brody took it upon himself to write to himself. My heart is shattered. Teach your kids kindness.”
