Perks of Being a JAP
A craft beer loving, rubber duck collecting JAP (Jewish American Princess) and new mom in NY.
One day they’ll get it right.
The last one just says “Lace”. So close!
LOL. I love this. I can only imagine what Starbucks would do with my IRL name. I have a “Starbucks” name though. I give it in any situation where I have to order food or something. I’m voting that you use Lace as yours. 🙂
My coworker does that! His name is Gerry, and he uses something like “Steve” whenever he orders. Hah!
HA! I just always spell it right away: “Doni. D-O-N-I.” I don’t even bother with “Doniree,” that’d be too hard. Also, I see your passion fruit iced tea… what’s your hot drink of choice??
I’m usually a Dunkin Donuts girl, but for hot beverages, either a Skinny Hazelnut Latte, or if I’m feeling splurg-y, a Sea Salt Caramel Hot Chocolate 🙂
Haha! That’s awesome. My brother, who has a perfectly normal and easy to pronounce name, uses “Batman” for all reservations and restaurant/deli fodder. It’s awesome. 🙂
Just saw this and thought of you! lol
That’s hilarious/ridiculous. I just think it’s funny when they misspell my name, I love that this girl was offended that they asked!
Lazie is my favorite! They always struggle with my name too. I’ve gotten a lot of Lianna, Leanne, Leena, and everything in between. haha
You’re not alone! There is a Tumblr-full of people who are facepalming at the spelling skills of many baristas…http://starbucksspelling.tumblr.com/
I know! I submitted one once. 🙂
I’ve stopped giving Starbucks or other places like it, my real name. I tend to go with something easy, like Sara, that’s pretty hard to screw up.
My full first name is a mouthful and complicated and at work I get so many hiliarious spellings of it from clients and potential vendors. They have even given me a temporary sex change with the spelling of my name. It’s a tad funny. But also, how hard is it when I’ve given them my name before?
Since my last name is also a surname, I get people who write emails back to me as “Dear [last name]” I’m pretty sure I didn’t write it backwards in my signature, so why would they assume that’s my first name?!
