I have no idea if this is a thing and someone has already started something like this but I think it's hilarious and makes for some fun memories. Here's the story.

 

Yesterday I went to Starbucks and there were about 5 people ahead of me in line. If you haven't ever been to Starbucks then you should know that they ask for your name to put on your cup in order to call it out when they're done conjuring it up. Well I kept hearing the word that starts with a C ends with a t and is four letters long. Such a dirty word it is. I was appalled seeing that children were around. I get that it's super loud in there with all of the mixers going but is it THAT hard to hear a simple name? Oh yeah, turns out the woman's name was Charlotte. I don't know how you get that from Charlotte? Anyway, I kept hearing these awful and unrealistic names being put on the cups and at first I'm thinking it's because they were being funny and wanted to do it. When I went up to order my latte I said my name clear as crystal with a lot of volume to it so they could hear me correctly. 3 minutes later I hear them calling my name- correctly I might add. I kind of felt a little surge of happiness to be like the first one to have theirs called out right. That surge didn't last long. I grabbed my cup and my name was spelled, Emmaleeee. Yes, with 4 e's. Oh my.

 

 

So here's the chance for anyone to play a Starbucks Barista. 

 

If someone was to come up to you ordering whatever and they tell you their name it's your turn to spell the name and interpret it as if all of the mixers, hipsters chatting, doors slamming, orders being called out, etc. to write it down. 

 

Here's how the game will go. 

 

 

You say your drink order and your name - can be a fake one, it's totally fine! 

The next person that posts will spell/say how they thought what the name was. 

 

Remember: you have to incorporate all the sounds that you hear. 

 

 

 

Here's a link to some that I think are just hilarious and odd. Especially the way they spelled Penelope.

 

 

 

 Have fun! I know it takes some imagination but I think it'll be pretty hilarious! :)

I actually do work at Starbucks and at our store we never put names on the cups. It's easier for us to call out the order, plus you don't need to worry about mishearing or misspelling. People just know what they ordered and we don't often get people who order the same exact thing right next to each other. There's so many different sizes and modifers. I will put someone's name on it if they ask and I have time to ask how to spell it. Some people like to take instagram photos haha. Anyway...

I mean Instagram is where it's at! :) Every Starbucks I've been to, which has been in about 3 different states in over 15 counties, they've always asked for my name. They're all on the East Coast so maybe that has something to say about it? lol!

Passionfruit lemonade tea for Ian 

 

(Most starbucks I go to here on the East Coast ask for names, depending on how busy it is. I frequent the same starbucks often though so they always know my name. My friends mom who works here though, she says at their store they purposely write names wrong in a negative way when they dislike people. Of course most stores don't, but its a game they play I guess).
