At least he spelled it with an “e.”

Today a barrista misspelled my Starbucks name.

Okay, you all have Starbucks names, right? I mean, those of you not named Jennifer or Sara(h).

I go by Anna because apparently Annika is impossible even if I say “A-N-N-I-K-A.” For years I drank coffees make for “Monica,” “Anica,” “Onica,” and assorted other ladies I am not. Anna does not have the same problems, especially since I allow for the variant Ana because LA is like 50% Latino (seriously).

Today I drank a coffee made for Anne.

    On Saturday, I was Glory. Not Lori. Not Gloria. Glory.

    Sometimes when my name is written in all caps, people think it’s Ann.

    As if I would ever be Ann with no “e”.

    That’s OK. I’ve drunk coffee meant for Jeffery, Geoffrey, Joffrey… and Georgie (?).

    I got Monty once. Monty. I kept waiting and waiting. Had no idea my drink was ready. Because my name is NOTHING LIKE MONTY.

    My dad always says it’s for God, just for his own amusement when he gets called when his drink is ready.

    I have hardly ever gotten my name spelled right either. I think I’ve seen every variant of Audry… Audrey, Audrie, Audri.
    My Dad, Peter, got the best one though. When we got home, Mum picked up his cup and said, “Who’s Edith?”

    I use my real name because at least I usually know they are talking to me when they call it. But they ALWAYS spell it wrong. Every freaking time. My favorite version was “Christle.” Um…

    Haha! That’s the best I’ve heard in a while. Most of the time people get my name right, aside from the occasional weirdo who tries to spell it “Stefanie” (oh no you didn’t), and one time I think I got a “Stefany” (sheesh).
