The truth: why Starbucks always spells your name wrong!

Anyone with an Irish name, or any name over two syllables really, will know this pain.

You join the queue at your local Starbucks, order that long-awaited Pumpkin Spice Latte, and clearly state your name… yet when your drink comes out it's been TAINTED with a jumble of letters that is not even remotely close to what you just said.

Sure, those misspellings make for very entertaining Facebook posts – and there's even a Tumblr full of them – but did you ever consider that this blatant butchering of your name might actually be for entertainment purposes?!

One barista has set the record straight in this video and we can't help but agree with him. Okay, it might be a spoof, but he has a good point!
