Why does Starbucks always get your name wrong?

We’ve got the answer as to why your name is always wrong on your Starbucks order.

We’ve all been to Starbucks at least a few times throughout our lives and the number one thing we seem to hear about, is your name on the cup. It always seems to be either spelt wrong or a completely different name altogether. Is the person taking our order not hearing us correctly or is this happening on purpose?

I personally have been a victim of Starbucks – my name is Lauren and I have had my name put down as Gloria. Being young, I don’t think I look like a Gloria and my name does not sound anything like it.

We’ve done a bit of thinking and done some research online and there is actually a conspiracy theory behind it all! What does any business want? Free marketing/exposure right? Most people, when they have a funny or wrong name written on their order will post it on social media for all their following to see. Boom – you’ve just given them free advertising! Now that is an interesting conspiracy theory and really does get you thinking… can they really be getting it wrong so often?

We would love to hear if you have been personally victimised by Starbucks and either had your name spelt completely wrong or got a whole new name altogether? And secondly, what are your thoughts on this conspiracy theory?

Also, talking about coffee, how adorable are these reusable coffee cups? We’re adding one to our wish-list to not only save the planet but also to have a cute coffee cup always on hand.
