(PCM) We have all been through it before. You order up your favorite tasty beverage at Starbucks and give them your name for pick-up only to find out the spelling has been been completely butchered. Sometimes it is even the simplest of names such as Mike or Mary for example.
Well, guess what? The Starbucks baristas are messing with you, at least according to comedian Paul Gale who has created a hilarious parody video explaining all of the reasons why Starbucks enjoys getting your name wrong.
In the video Gale takes on the role of a Starbucks barista and lists the many reasons that misspelling your name is the highlight of his day. He claims that he will “never, ever stop” and that misspelling your name is the way in which he “plays with your emotions in a shrewd and calculated way. And it worked”.
It is great to see that Starbucks can keep a sense of humor about themselves and Gale also targets the customers who feed into the spelling errors by posting their stories and images of the cups all over social media.
