Starbucks Screw-ups

You know that feeling you get when the Barista at Starbucks puts your drink on the bar, looks at the name, gets that puzzled expression on their face, and calls out something that makes you cringe?

Don't get me wrong... I love Starbucks, its friendly employees, and all its delicious, caffeinated concoctions that keep us going throughout the day, but sometimes i've just gotta laugh at the absurdity of some of the names these people write on our cups.

Yes, it's happened to all of us at some point. This blog is dedicated to the most embarrassing, hilarious and generally ridiculous screw-ups that happen when Starbucks employees try and fail to understand some of the more unique names of the world.

I claim absolutely no affiliation with the Starbucks company. No copyright infringement here! Just a girl finding humor in the horrendous misspellings of every day people.




My name is Topher.  I’m not comfortable to sit on.

I worked for Starbucks for 3 years.

1) Re when “Sam” becomes “Thomas”: Make sure you’re actually picking up the correct drink. I can not tell you how many times I got yelled at for making a drink ‘incorrectly’ when really it was the customer not bothering to read the cup or listen to a word I say.

2) I deliberately spelled people’s names wrong if I was in a bad mood. It was more apt to happen if I felt it would ruin your morning Instagram picture. Deal with it.
