7 Names to Drop at Starbucks Instead of Beyoncé
We're kindly offering some suggestions that may actually get you great service.
One caffeine-deprived person recently discovered that the first rule of going to Starbucks is never claim to be Beyoncé. When Vine user JewishJen tried to be funny and tell a Starbucks barista her name is, well, Beyoncé, the employee didn't find it all that hysterical that she was taking the pop star's name in vain. So, to put the Atlanta-area resident in her place she scribbled "U Wish" on the cup. Ouch!
It should be noted that no one thinks the charttopper is the only person with that famous moniker (in fact, she isn't), but on this day no one was buying Jen's story that she shares the Queen's name. So, if you don't want to make the same mistake yet want to be someone else for the day — or simply, a coffee run — here are seven other celebrity names you might want to drop instead.
Any singer who sounds like she's singing "Starbucks lovers" in a song, should be impersonated at the coffee establishment that bears that name as much as possible.
The Real Housewives of New York Skinnygirl mogul did commend the chain for using red cups during the holiday season because they are "green & smart." With props like that, any barista would probably love to serve the 'Wife — real or otherwise.
The fashion moguls are often photographed around town holding hot beverages as tall as they are. Just throw on some shades and boho chic clothes and no one will suspect you're not an Olsen twin.
The only way to pull off pretending to be Kim K is learning her intense order. Can you say "White Chocolate Mocha with Whipped Cream" 10 times fast?
As if we needed another reason to want to pretend to be the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills daughter/Starbucks fan. For this, we suggest finding a Zayn Malik lookalike (and sending him our way when you're done) and dropping the "Hadid" when giving the barista your name. Hey, it just might work.
