Hong Kong Uncle Casually Sitting at Starbucks During Heavy Flood is My Spirit Animal

Hong Kong is currently getting dumped on by heavy rain and preparing for an upcoming super typhoon this week. While most people would opt to take shelter at home, one man has decided that nothing was going to come between him and his coffee.

The man was recently photographed hanging out at Starbucks, while drinking coffee and reading the newspaper as flood waters rose beneath him — and he couldn’t care less.


The photo went viral and sparked a small Photoshop battle.

Fortunately, the water has now been pumped out and restored to its original condition. Hopefully, the Starbucks Uncle will be able to enjoy his coffee without any distractions.
