It never fails. You go to Starbucks. You order your tall red eye with a shot of sugar-free cinnamon dolce. They ask your name so they can write it on the cup. You tell them it's Rachel.

You get your order at the counter. You read the name on the cup and it says:


What?! How did they even manage to go from what you said to that spelling monstrosity?!

Well, John Purcell and the folks at Paul Gale Comedy have made a video explaining why Starbucks baristas almost always misspell your name. And it's just what we feared:

"I am f--king with you. It is the best part of my job, and I will never stop."

Yes, this video is a parody and not an actual representation of what is going on Starbucks, but you know that most baristas are screwing up names on purpose at least once.

Especially if you are an a--hole when you order.
