The celebrity chef was in a mischievous mood as he went to pick up a toastie, taking on the persona of the kind of difficult customer he would typically have absolutely zero time for.
In a video shared on TikTok, the 54-yeard-old enquires about the chain's 'amazing toasties' over the intercom.
He asks: "Is that the ham and cheese Jamie Oliver toastie from the Shell garage?"
Seemingly oblivious to who he is serving, the joke appears to go over the staff member's head, so Ramsay just proceeds to be a pain in the a***.
"Is there any tomato in there?" he asks.
"It's got mustard," the employee replies.
"Is it English or French mustard?" Ramsay asks.
"American," the employee replies.
"Oh, I'm allergic to American," Ramsay quips.
At this point, you'd think a queue would be forming and the employee's patience evaporating, but Ramsay wasn't done yet.
In the video, he asks: "Do you do takeaways?"
The employee duly responds: "It's takeaway only."
Ramsay fires back: "What's 10 takeaway from 100?"
The employee doesn't reply to Ramsay's maths question but he does appear to let out a chuckle, seemingly realising he's being wound up.
Ramsay posted the video yesterday (Wednesday 7 April) with the caption: "When I'm driving all day.... I need to have some fun PART 1."
Hopefully that means an upcoming second part will reveal how the Starbucks employee reacted when he realised the pain in the a*** toastie-purchaser was none other than Chef Ramsay.
Commenting on his prank, one TikTok user said: "Imagine serving Gordon Ramsay I would be so scared."
Another commented: "You need to go to a drive through get a burger and yell IT RAAWWW at the window."
A third added: "That cashier was absolutely DONE and was 100% thinking how he doesn't get paid enough for what he was going through."
Ramsay has been passing the time lately by sharing all sorts of content you wouldn't typically associate with him (see here):
Clearly then, it's about time society got back to normal, so Ramsay can stop dancing about and pranking drive-thru employees and get back to b******ing people on the telly.
