I would love some feedback about how I can make this better in general! Maybe the formatting, or the flow of the piece, or anything that could use some work! All feedback is appreciated :)

Hello, what can I get for you?

Hi! Yes, I'd like a hot chocolate please.

And would you like whipped cream?

Yes please!

And your name?

Amelie

Great thanks!

Amelia? Your order is ready.

Thanks! Have a good day!

Oh look Erika, they spelled my name wrong, again. 

A - M - U - L - Y

How did Amelie become Amelia become Amuly???

Oh what a fun name I have.

    funny but annoyingly true! at least, i think it is. i don't go to sbux that often :( even tho i love it, but my name's not too hard. one would think. welcome! this is an amazing community.
    btw, i've always wanted to be one of those people who go into sbux and they're like "yes, this order is for lord voldemort" or "just write lucy of narnia, thanks. i'm in disguise today" or something funny like that. but i've never had the courage or opportunity

    This is hilarious! I haven't been to StarBucks (Mainly because there aren't many branches where I live, and I'm not a coffee person.), but so many people talk about the name spelling. Through personal experience, my name has been twisted in many (many) ways

    this made me smile....i feel recognized :) my own name's been misspoken countless times - even as tsunami once!

    That was very clever. Indeed, such things happen but well, names are just names. It might be irksome for some people to see their names being spelt wrong though I sometimes enjoy it. Weird, isn't it? XD
    Good day!

    I love this piece! It’s relatable because they always misspelled and said my moms name.
