You may have thought the reason your Starbucks barista keeps spelling your name incorrectly is because he can’t hear over the sound of the blender going off in the background, or maybe you mumble when you speak, or maybe you assume the order-taker just never did so well on spelling tests in school. All pretty excusable reasons, right?
Well, turns out, none of them are true.
The hilarious parody video above produced by East Village comedian Paul Gale explains the actual sinister reason why you always receive your cup with a misspelled name: Your barista is a huge jerk.
He loves throwing you off, making you feel uncomfortable and thinks it’s awesome to play with your feelings.
Like we said, dude’s a jerk.
