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.

Went to Starbucks the other day with some friends. They totally butchered Caitlin’s name .Oh well.

I usually tell people my name is Jennifer when I order coffee/food because my real name is hard to spell. That’s what I did when I went to Starbucks the other day and they misspelled my fake name! Does that mean I need to change my fake name : 




So I was grabbing an iced coffee on the way to work Monday morning. The guy taking my order was really nice and I’m assuming might have been still in training, so he gets docked a little bit less for this one.

After telling him my name was “Cheyenne” he was kind enough to actually ask how to spell it. When I received my drink though, he lost all his credentials. “C-H-U-Y-E-N-N-E” I don’t understand how “E” sounds like “U” or why he never was tested on his state capitols…

On I think Saturday, my sister, Emily & Melinda, and I went to Starbucks and then the bookstore. I got my usual Double Chocolate Chip Frapp and told her my name was Melissa. Anyway, I got it back and I didn’t notice the name on the cup until we were in the car almost at the book store. Haha, I’m not sure what she wrote there…o.o

  • Starbucks Girl: What name do you want on the cup?
  • Step-dad: No whipped cream, please.
  • Starbucks Girl: How do you spell that?

I 100% honestly told the lady that my name is Karissa (which it is). And I know I didn’t steal someone else’s drink because I was the only one there.




The cup said “Maddy” on it instead of Maddie (But hey, close enough). The barista pronounced it like “Matey”. Arrgg…
