So I go to my favorite coffee place, Starbucks, pretty much every day. I always get the same thing which recent has been: tall vanilla latte, %, no foam. And they always ask me for my name which I always respond by saying: Sunny. Most of the time, not all, they get my name wrong. I don’t understand why is it so hard for people to write down Sunny. I am ok even if they just write Sonny, which is the most common misspelling of my name, but Starbucks staff always find creative ways of spelling “Sunny”.
I have seen following names.. and I am not kidding or making up any of them. All the people who go with me to Starbucks know this! Here is the list I have so far: Sunny, Sonny, Suni, Sunee, Suuniee, Suney, Suny and the one I have in front of me which made me blog this, Sunni.
So if any Starbucks staff reading this, could you explain to me how come you guys are so bad with spelling names? Is quality of hiring staff is so low that people there can’t even spell a very common word!? or is it because I don’t look like Sunny but I look like everything else I have been labeled? So next time when they ask me for my name, maybe I should just say Sunny, like “Its Sunny outside”? Or maybe not; because even when I did that, I think I got Sunie out of it.
I will update here with dates/names as they come along.
