According to KTUL, an Oklahoma police officer working on Thanksgiving got the surprise of his life during a quick coffee stop at Starbucks. When he got his order, he reportedly saw the word “PIG” printed on the cup’s label.

The officer stopped by a Starbucks in to grab five cups of coffee for all his dispatchers working on the holidays. After spotting the words on the cup, he called and spoke to the Starbucks manager who simply offered to reprint the label for him. The officer didn’t like that, so he Tweeted a photo of the label and it went viral.

“What irks me is the absolute and total disrespect for a police officer who, instead of being home with his family and enjoying a meal and a football game, is patrolling his little town,” Police chief, Johnny O’Mara,  said in the post.
