I'm sure most of us have been to or know what Starbucks is, right? Then I'm sure we're familiar with the practice of Starbucks baristas screaming your name at the top of their lungs in order to collect your order.
This of course is a hilarious idea, because for some reason trying to convey your name to strangers turns into translating something from another language; no one can hear you, no one can spell it, or maybe your name is just plain hard to pronounce! This is where the fun begins...
The name change game is as old as time, so how far can you take it while making it hilarious? Are you an Emma instead of a Nancy-Leigh? And you a Hugh Janus?
Or are you game enough to try one of these 'Scream your name at Starbucks' ideas and really go the whole 9 yards?

Just gave my name in Starbucks as ‘Sparticus’. When the barista shouted my ‘name’ the whole place shouted ‘No I am Sparticus’ there was a long discussion about whose coffee it actually was. Try it.— krish kandiah (@krishk) August 28, 2018
Just gave my name in Starbucks as ‘I’m Hungry’. When the barista shouted my ‘name’, half of the customers yelled ‘Hi Hungry, I’m Dad!’ and the other half just rolled their eyes. It was great, you should try it.— Dean Nimbly (@Dean_Nimbly) August 29, 2018
Just gave my name in Starbucks as ‘FREE COFFEE!’ When the barista shouted my "name", it all kicked off. Laptops went flying, I saw one woman get hit in the face by a pug, one person screamed 'WHAT ABOUT TEA?', people started shoving sugar in their pockets for no reason. Try it.— Jenks (@TheLostBride) August 28, 2018
Just gave my name in Starbucks as "Anthropocene", I just made up the word on the spur of the moment. As the barrista screamed out my 'name' repeatedly everyone was shocked. But it seems to have stuck.— Without Pity (@without_pity) August 30, 2018
Just gave my name in Starbucks as Aphrahat, the Persian Sage, and as the barista shouted "WHO?!", I was like, "dang, my academic specialty is so uninteresting that I can't even participate in a twitter thing."— James E. Walters (@jedwardwalters) August 27, 2018
