HONG KONG — One Hong Kong man has proven he is dedicated to Starbucks no matter what happens.

The man, who has been dubbed “Starbucks Uncle” by social media, didn’t let a little water ruin his coffee routine as the store began to flood, he just sat there and kept his cool.

The store became flooded with standing water and “Starbucks Uncle” just sat there reading his newspaper.

Hong Kong has been dealing with rainstorms all week, caused by a Typhoon, which has lead to flash floods across the city.

Kristy Chan, a local medical worker, was able to snap a picture of “Starbucks Uncle,” which made the front page of online forum Reddit.

“It was quite funny. Maybe he already has that many life experiences so the flood didn’t bother him at all,” Chan told BBC. Naturally, the internet had a field day with the wildly meme-able (and utterly unbothered) man, taking to Photoshop to show us just how relaxed “Starbucks Uncle” truly is.

Take a look at some hilarious memes that feature “Starbucks Uncle” below:
