No matter the simplicity of your name, you've probably experienced receiving your coffee cup with a big fat permanent misspelt mark of your name on it. 

Perhaps it's a daily occurrence for you, but chances are unless your name is John Smith, it's happened more than once. Although, did you ever think that there was another reason behind this other than your local barista's inability to spell or hear? 

Well, there's a theory that they're doing it completely on purpose because you rather a) tell your friends about it or b) upload a photo to social media... 

Both of which mean spreading the word of the cafe! 

Yes, this theory was probably created by someone who was a bit too perked up on all their caffeine... but it kind of makes sense?
