Have you ever had a barista at Starbucks misspell your name? Of course you have! The coffee chain is SOO notorious for slipping up on customer names that there are entire Tumblr pages dedicated to their flubs!
Well a young woman by the name of Virginia found out just how bad their mistakes can be when she ordered her drink at a Starbucks in Hong Kong and received a cup with "Vagina" written on it instead!
We can picture it now! "TALL LATTE FOR VAGINA!" LOLz!!
Virginia's sister snapped a picture of the HIGHlarious gaffe and posted it to the company's Facebook page along with a complaint, and the photo has quickly made its way around the internet and gone viral!
We gotta admit, we've seen our fair share of Starbucks slip-ups, but this one easily takes the cake! Ha!

Oh no! The lines at Starbucks are about to get even longer!
Customers have long been complaining that Starbucks has become an assembly-line, heartless coffee shop. In response, Starbucks executives have told baristas to slow down and make each coffee drink with more care than before.
Baristas are no longer allowed to work on more than two cups of coffee at once, and have to steam milk for each individual drink rather than making a pitcher and using it multiple times. One barista said that the changes will double the time it takes them to make the coffee.
We like the sentiment behind this idea, but we DO NOT like the idea of waiting twice as long in lines! When it’s time to get coffee in the morning we need it right away!
