My wife's name is Yintao. She runs into this problem at the Starbucks in Georgetown all the time.

My real name is Daniel and growing up in school my teachers were constantly saying Danielle/Daniella when reading it off the attendance. It still happens from time to time today. It amazes me how many people can have trouble with such a simple name.  So I can only imagine how people would have trouble with a less common name.

Her cup was once "Virgin". That's when they noticed her hoodie.

Virginia's sister sounds like a real coont.   You are in a foreign country where not everyone is going to be familiar with every single anglo-saxon name they come across.  If you're such a little delicate flower and so easily offended then spell your name out for people.

Its spelled Vagina, but its pronounced Va-jean-uh

If this happened to me, I would just yell, " Why did you name my cup Vagina, you weirdo." Probably embarrass him more than me.

To use the parlance of our times, yes. Or I China's case, the "palrance" of theirs.

Speaking of which, do Starbucks in China have less seats in order to accommodate the mainland peasants who just squat everywhere?

There's a woman in my hometown named Lotta Dick.  Seriously.

If you think that is bad, try going in there and ordering a "large"

I hear you, bro. I have this exact same problem. My name is Devaraja and every time I approach women at work they're like "there's that stupid little prick again".

Ok, I just read the TFA.   The damn woman complaining can't even form a sentence, yet she expects someone with english probably as their fourth language to spell Virginia properly?

Seriously... I don't think Virginia is exactly a popular name in China and if the guy was Chinese English ain't going to be his first language. Her outrage is farking ridiculous. She must live in a constant state of sand in her sister.

"Every Starbucks experience for her has been coupled with fear and anticipation. "

He spelled "Big quivering frightened Vagina" incorrectly
 
2013-05-01 08:39:50 PM  
Non-native English speaker misspells Virginia to Va-gin-a.  Quickly, stop the presses, this is quite possibly the most offensive thing ever done in the history of humanity.

/Someone needs to clean some sand out of their Virginia.

American name


one of these things is not like the other
 
2013-05-01 08:45:36 PM  
You know, there are times I wished I lived the lives these people must have.  If experiences are coupled with "fear and anticipation" because your name may be spelled wrong by someone who isn't a native speaker of your language, how difficult must the rest of your life be?  That's what you're afraid of?  If that's seriously your internet-rage-worthy-issue, then you have a terribly easy life.  Or you are terribly retarded.

/THIS IS AN OUTRAGE
 
2013-05-01 08:45:59 PM  
Man I'm a lot dumber for reading that article.

So what is preventing Virginia from giving the baristas a nickname or just the letter V to spare her the "trauma"?

/also Vagina needs to learn farking Cantonese if she's going to live in Hong Kong

"Meat Curtains" would have been funnier.
 
2013-05-01 08:49:51 PM  
The real problem here is not the misspelling, it's that Virginia now has to walk around with VAGINA printed large on her cup. That's going to be embarrassing for her. Suing wouldn't be the best first step. Talking to the manager would be good, plus there's the possibility of getting some free coffee vouchers, which would be nice.

They probably won't be very long lives, either. One of these days China's gonna draft them and send them to invade India or Japan.

Eh, not really. It's not hard to ask "How do you spell that?" Especially when the spelling you pick is "Vagina." Imagine if your name was Peter and the barista wrote "Penis" because he/she was too embarrassed to ask you how you spell "Peter."

/I once had to call a customer named Phuc, and another named No Bich Ho. In America.

FTFA: "This is my sister's cuppa 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?"

WTF?

If going to Starbuck's is such a traumatic experience for your sister, (1) she should stop going to Starbuck's, or (2) she should use a nickname like 'Ginny' and stop trying to force everyone to learn how to spell her name just so they can write it on her coffee cup.

As for you, you come across like a vagina spelled with the letter "C". Are you really this much of a self-centered attention whore, or is this all just a cry for help?

Suck it up, honey.  She's probably been called Vagina since she was 10 years old.
 
2013-05-01 08:54:17 PM  
If I only had a nickel for every time I stuck my dick in a cup of coffee I could afford a vagina at Starbucks.
 
2013-05-01 08:55:30 PM  
"Fancy your [Hong Kong] staff not being able to spell an American name like Virginia...THIS is just UNACCEPTABLE. Starbucks HK,"

The barista deserves a medal for polite restraint.

'Vagina' is not the term I would have used.
