Well, that’s a new one

9 Nov

We all know I get fun spellings on my coffee, like…

Stebie

Stebie

 

and…

 

Febe

Febe

 

and even…

 

we thought maybe this one was supposed to be "Jamie" - but when the barista confronted the cashier, he said "I really didn't know what her name was" - LOL!

So today, I went to Tully’s Coffee, a local chain that of course is supposed to be better than Starbucks.  They asked me for a name, and I said “Phoebe”.

I got this –

wait...what?

wait…what?

 

Yes, instead of my name, they put down a smiley.  So while they’re calling out “Sarah” and “Neil”, I got “decaf latte”.  Because they couldn’t be bothered with even trying to write my name.

I’ve been demoted to a smiley face.

*sigh*

    I am sure that was meant to be an apologetical smile. What if they just did not know how to spell your name and did not want to make it a wrong spelling?

      I’ve come to enjoy all the different spellings. Really, if they take the time to ask my name, I want to see effort – LOL!

        Maybe you should take comfort, that your name is more of a name and less of a species-description. Mine is so wellspread here, in my class were two more girls called my first name – and we were only 22!

        I did appreciate the more unique name in college, where every other girl was named Jennifer.

        See – and you know how it is with cakes and having them ..
        The upside of your name is it is seldom enough to make you not one of the masses – the downside is, it is seldom enough that not everybody knows how to spell it.
        And you are not the only one whose name is misspelled at those cafés … if that is of any comfort to you. You see – Greek has lost its appeal to today’s students …

    For a moment, I thought maybe it was written in Chinese.

      I thought maybe they were just doing that to all the cups…until my friend Neil got “Neil” on his.

    I just don’t understand what the deal is with “Phoebe”. It is not THAT uncommon a name. Heck, it was the name of one of the main characters on “Friends”, one of the most popular tv shows for 10 years!
    But I also don’t understand why “Lexann” is so hard to spell, either. I get a lot of “LeAnn”s, which is understandable, but “Roxanne” or “Rosanne”? I mean seriously, how hard is “Lexann”? So, I always spell it out for them.
