Starbucks Misspells Customer’s Name in Worst Possible Way

Starbucks spelling fail
Veronica Goh, Facebook

A Starbucks customer in Hong Kong was unhappy after an employee mistakenly wrote ‘Vagina’ instead of ‘Virginia’ on her cup. Epic spelling fail, indeed.

We’re only assuming the employee was a man, by the way.

The woman’s sister posted the picture to Facebook:

This is my sister’s cuppa [SIC] from your HKU branch. Fancy your staff not being able to spell an American name like Virginia. Forgiving she has been with every misspelled cup. Her cup was once ‘Virgin’. Every Starbucks experience for her has been coupled with fear and anticipation. But THIS is just UNACCEPTABLE. Starbucks HK, you have to buck up or just not spell your customer’s name anyway. It is a derogatory attitude even if it is unintentional. What do you have to say about this?

The post received over 1,000 likes, but some comments claim the picture is a fake, while others defend the coffee chain, noting that employees in Hong Kong shouldn’t be expected to spell American customers’ names correctly.
