Starbucks Spelling Sucks
By Jonathan O'Connor on Tuesday, February 26, 2013
Is there anything more annoying than people getting your name wrong? There probably is but it is one of life’s little irritations. Starbucks well-meant initiative in writing customers names on their coffee cups was well received last year. But a blog that highlights what happens when this goes wrong up is doing very well. http://starbucksspelling.tumblr.com/ is doing very well indeed.
Coffee patrons have sent in examples of when their names have been mangled and twisted into something else. It’s a great example of how one can set up a very simple blog that highlights some irritations. Starbucks can hardly be responsible for mumbling customers or hard of hearing staff but this sort of thing was bound to occur in the age of social media.
