WTF Starbucks?


Learn to spell people’s names. It’s not that hard! If you didn’t know. Ask! Beside…. “Jason” can’t be that hard to spell. Oops wait! Evidently it is…

JasEn… Jasen….. WTF? She can’t spell my name. But she can write Spock or Captain Kirk no problem.

    1. That may be. I’ve also seen Jason spelled out “Jayson”. But the main form of spelling is “Jason”. I didn’t say it funny or what have you. I go to this coffee shop a lot and I know they know me. It just comes down to laziness and lack of caring. I know what my work, I deal with people every day and have to take names all the time. But I always ask or at least double check if I’ve spelled things right. I know a lot of people will get offended if you mispronounce or misspell their name. Like my Step-dad for example is from India. His last name is Chenjeri and people murder his name all the time. And I know this bothers him, so rather deal with people he uses his nickname.
      So while I understand that there are different ways of spelling my name. Or names in general, I still think this is still rather annoying. Besides, given Starbucks’s history on names I’m not to surprised by this.

  1. I hear you on that. I’ve gotten ‘Gia’ a number of times, even after I spell it. And in every case (unless I go there a lot), my name will always be mispelled.

    I agree – if you didn’t hear it right, ask me to repeat it. I do my best to make sure I not only pronounce a name correctly, but that I know how to spell it. It’s called respect, people.

    1. Right! I’ve been getting a lot of comments like “get over yourself” or “deal with it”. I’m sorry, but no haha. If I spell it out for you and you still get it wrong. That’s flat out laziness and lack of respect.
