We might be really, really great at it in the UK, but everybody hates queueing - especially for coffee.

It's a common scenario: you stayed up too late watching Netflix and you're now desperate to get some sweet caffeine coursing through your veins before you finally get back into the office. Who wouldn't want to skip the line?

This young mother, however, feels like it's her right to cut the queue - and the internet has feelings about it, to say the least.

The still-unidentified woman recently went viral when she posed holding a coffee cup (what else?) and a sign which read:

Moms should get a fast pass to the front of the line at coffee shops.

Honey, you're 22 & slept 10 hours last night? Get to the back of the line.

There's a lot to unpack here, but luckily social media did it for us.

Some kept their statements short and sweet, whereas others made reference to the iconic "can I speak to the manager?" meme.

Others made a valid point: literally which 22-year-old is sleeping 10 hours per night in 2018? The year of unpaid internships and elevated property prices? Who?

Some made their own signs...

RuPaul's Drag Race - Shangela Laquifa Wadley's sugar daddy rant (complete with drink throw) more specifically - even got a mention.

And some people highlighted that it's just a meme and there's no need to make nasty comments about mothers and the internet should just calm down.

This is obviously a woman that wanted to go viral, and she has - just not in the best way.

But if you want more coffee and meme-related content, check out this Coffee Dad instead.

He's happy to wait in line and just wants a sweet caffeine fix without stepping on anyone's toes.

An icon.
