Do you have a Starbucks name?
Most people it seems grow up to appreciate an unusual first name – but not when it comes to ordering coffee at Starbucks or other outlets. As their turn comes at the counter something simple keeps the busy queue moving. A feature based on responses to a New York Times article showed that Fadi was often misunderstood as Fatty – so he calls himself John at coffee time. Shasta has settled for Ruby as her counter name while Vanessa Angelica goes by her grandmother’s name Stella. Seems that when time is pressing and the urge for a coffee is strong a lot of us choose to become Mary or Mike until that skinny flat white is safely in our hand.
