Because I can’t stay serious for too long, I bring you more Starbucks vs Phoebe, the Name Fail Game!
The first one is actually Jamba Juice, proving that spelling Phoebe wrong is a Universal Phenomenon…
And the “bee” phenomenon just keeps happening, as seen here…
Meanwhile, in Jersey, my friend Jennifer got this one just today – Feebie – yes, it could almost be “Feebil” but she assures me it’s “Feebie”.
And proving that yes, a man can call himself Phoebe and they can still screw it up – thanks Michael!
And another reader wrote to me how she tried to take the Phoebe Challenge at her local Starbucks, but after saying the name twice and getting looks from the barista, the barista just made the coffee herself and handed her a nameless cup. I will state, that has never happened to me – but probably because when they start getting that confused look upon their face after I say my name, I’ve been known to take the cup and pen and write it myself.
What’s funny is when the cashier taking the order writes one thing, and the barista corrects it –
And I too have gotten the “I’m not sure which way is write, so I’ll do one of each” pairing of cups –
Once in a while, if I’m with another family member, I’ll give their more easy to write name (in Ireland, most people know how to spell Maura, lol.) That’s how I ended up with favorite pairing of drinks.
Can’t get enough of the misspellings? Check out my first post about the Starbucks Name Fail!
