Starbucks is the ultimate success story. Initially when they started, their main customers were the young students with just a little more than average money to burn. After that began targeting different social classes and specific neighborhoods. They realized that people are more than willing to pay for high end consumer items. Keeping this min mind Starbucks followed an aggressive expansion policy that seeks to target almost every demography. Starbucks has a complete edge over the local coffee shops that are smaller in size since its buying power is comparatively larger. Over the years, since its founding in 1971 in Seattle, USA, Starbucks has become a household name. In some cases, the name Starbucks has become synonymous with coffee.
Most of us have been to Starbucks often and Every one of us has at least once experienced the Starbucks name fail phenomenon. It happens like this: the person at the coffee machine does not know your name and misspells is while writing it on the coffee cup. Of course this is not an offense that cannot be ignored. There is nothing to worry about either. However, people do get annoyed watching their hilariously misspelled names. The look on the faces of these people that of total disbelief at the prospect of realizing that someone could misspell even the most simple of names, say like Paul.
There is no reason why the coffee guy at Starbucks fails to spell even simple names in a proper manner. Names like John, Paul, Lucy and Maggie are simple enough and it is assumed that everybody would know their spellings but when someone watch these names butchered by the people at Starbucks, the situation becomes funny and tragic at the same time.
Why do the coffee guys make these mistakes?
Perhaps it is too noisy where they are working. Perhaps, they do it n purpose in order to get some kick out of the situation. Or perhaps they simply don’t give a damn. Whatever the case, it is a fact that the misspelled names are simply hilarious at times.
There are several; conspiracy theories regarding why the Starbucks coffee up keeps coming with an incorrect spelling of your name. Of course, it is very difficult to hear correctly over the noise of the coffee machines and scores of noisy students squealing at the top of their voices. The lines are very long and the baristas know that it wouldn’t make a difference if your name had one or two vowels – or even three. The coffee would still remain the same and you would enjoy it.
