Starbucks kept getting this woman's name wrong so she took a picture each time

And they’re so wrong.

AS A NATION, Ireland has it pretty bad in the awful Starbucks barista name writing stakes – especially when we’re abroad.

Siân David is a Welsh woman who lives in England, who has a similar problem with her morning coffee routine.

So she started taking a picture of every attempt

She works for The Bristol Post, and initially shared her story with the newspaper after she had been uploading them to Facebook for some time.

But since then her photos have been shared far across the internet

It’s a documentary record of consistently hilarious attempts at her name

And those times that the barista couldn’t be bothered, and went for something cute instead

Well done to that barista. You’ve given everyone with a slightly different name some much needed hope.
