And now, more Starbucks Name Fails!

22 Nov

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…

It's nice when they type it out, so you can see clearly just how badly it was misspelled

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”.

it's so cheerfully written, isn't it?

And proving that yes, a man can call himself Phoebe and they can still screw it up – thanks Michael!

 

Isn't Michael pretty?

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.

They got stuck when I said "PH" and they were writing "F" - so I took care of it

What’s funny is when the cashier taking the order writes one thing, and the barista corrects it –

It's both wrong AND right!

And I too have gotten the “I’m not sure which way is write, so I’ll do one of each” pairing of cups –

Pheobe and Phoebe - oddly enough, the cup that's misspelled was my drink!

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.

Maura and Mommy

 

Can’t get enough of the misspellings?  Check out my first post about the Starbucks Name Fail!

    Love it! I’ve tried the Phoebe name a couple times and am now sadly disappointed when they spell the name correctly. At least I get credit for the first Phoe-bee from Texas! Will continue to play the game because frankly, it’s a welcome distraction from the many unpleasant things that are going on in this world today.

    That must be funny to hear the barista call out, “I have a (insert coffee drink here) for Mommy!” Lol!

    I wonder if Starbucks in Phoenix would do better….
