Starbucks Can’t Spell Coffee (others can’t spell at all)

Apr 13, 2015 by

Just like I pointed out in my last article, there are certain entities that should be able to spell certain things. Residents of a state should be able to spell their state names and businesses should be able to spell things that are specific to their industry.   Here are some examples of major gaffes I’ve seen recently that illustrate this point.

I’m sorry but, if you’re the largest, global COFFEE chain IN THE WORLD with over 21,000 stores in over 60 COUNTRIES, and YOU CAN’T SPELL “COFFEE”, you need to shut down immediately.  Either close your doors or start serving items you can spell.

My next victim is a bar that can’t spell the drinks they serve.  In particular, a NEW ORLEANS bar that CAN’T SPELL “HURRICANE”.

Seriously, the “Hurricane” is arguably the most popular drink in the city and one that was created here.  And, as everyone knows, this city is no stranger to the storms of the same name.   If I owned this bar, I would have fired the person who wrote this.

Here’s another place  (restaurant) that can’t spell “hurricane”.  I was alerted to this by a friend of a friend so I had to go find it myself a few weeks ago.


How about a Souvenir Shop owner that can’t spell “Souvenir”?

And lastly, this French Quarter restaurant has some issues they need to resolve as well.  In fact, I’ve posted their mistakes to their Facebook Page twice.  In each post, I asked them if they’ll hire me to make their signs.  I’m still waiting for an answer.  (edit: I just noticed they deleted my last post……)

That’s it for this post. If you discover items like this on  your own that you’d like to share, let me know!

This is why we can’t have nice things.
