serious belly laughing over here. Is that "Probla"?????

I want to make a little book of "wrong Starbucks cups" now.

Suzanne said...

This is why I go to Peet's.

I dont understand why people can't seem to get the correct name on your cups.

Suzanne said...

I keep coming back to look at this photo, just to laugh. I especialy like saying "Probla" out loud.

I can't decide if it's Probla or Probler. They are both hilarious.
But what I really love is the first (crossed out) attempt. Have no effing idea what it was ("Potesu?!?!"), but it was WAY off.

CKD said...

This is why I give my name as "Lisa" at coffee shops/Jamba Juice/any place. For some reason no one messes up Lisa.

Starbucks has recently come out as this big supporter of open carry laws. Get yourself a piece and start waving it around demanding they spell your name right.

Really I think it says problem! And no, you seriously cant make this kind of stuff up... Come on, how hard is Porter to spell?

Katie said...

I agree with the above comment- I think it actually says Problem. (Your name? Or you?) And what did the barista yell out when your drink was ready?
I'm beginning to think that you're using fake foreign accents to order your drinks just to make it interesting! ;)

porter said...

I swear to God I am not obscuring my name in any way. It's much more fun to see the name blunders when I pronounce it really well!

Clare Carver said...

so I am dying to know how they actually called you to have you retrieve your cup!!
