And here we thought the epic saga of “tip shaming” at Starbucks was the ultimate caffeination nightmare.

A waitress was left in hysterics during her shift at a Thai coffee shop, after a python slithered out of nowhere — leaving her “traumatized” and “suffering nightmares”

According to the 28-year-old server identified only as Fern for privacy reasons, the slippery customer poked its head out from a gap next to the café’s air conditioning unit, and was poised to strike when she noticed it and flipped out.

“When I saw the snake, I wanted to get out of the shop, so I ran,” Fern told Newsflare of the cringe-worthy incident in Nakhon Si Thammarat. “But then I saw the snake’s head hanging down and staring at me [so] I ran to the back of the shop.”

The snake’s near attack was caught on CCTV, showing the reptile slithering to the floor — before slithering toward a terrified Fern, looking as though it was about to attack.

Luckily, there were workmen standing outside the shop that heard the woman scream, immediately running inside to help. One man wrestled with the snake while dragging it outside by the tail, calling an animal rescue team to take it away and release it back into the wild.

The snake was identified as a reticulated python, which is found throughout Southeast Asia. The species is one of the world’s largest snakes and can eat humans, cats, dogs, birds, rats and other snakes, according to National Geographic. The massive reptiles live in forests, swamps, canals and even in cities — meaning it’s not uncommon for them to clash with humans.

Alas, there was no damage to the shop, aside from one broken jar. However, the hospitality worker said she’s been left severely impacted by the traumatizing experience.

“I’m afraid if I open the door there will be a snake hanging there again. I’m still scared,” she said. “Many people messaged me asking if I was okay, and I told all of them that I am okay but I’m still terrified after what happened.”

The 28-year-old was left traumatized by the experience.

Meanwhile, some of Fern’s more superstitious pals told her she could be in for a love match any day now.

“People say that if you see a snake, it means that you’re meeting your soulmate soon,” she said. “But if my soulmate comes as big as this snake, then I would rather not.”
