In a recent interview during the press tour for the new movie A Wrinkle In Time, E! News asked Oprah and her co-stars Mindy Kaling and Reese Witherspoon a few questions about which errands they still run themselves. Witherspoon said she still pumps her own gas (Kaling and Oprah don't), and Oprah says she still pays bills herself. Then, while describing that she also does her own ordering at Starbucks, Oprah interjected as Kaling wondered aloud what it would be like for a barista to write "Oprah" on a Starbucks cup: "Oh my god," she said. "I just went two days ago and the woman said, 'Name?', and I said 'Oprah,' and she said 'How do you spell that?'"
Now, it's possible this employee was just so incredibly nervous to be serving the legendary Queen of Daytime TV that they simply went about their routine to remain calm, in hopes of making doubly sure they weren't going to misspell one of the most famously unique celebrity names of all time. Or it's possible this person just didn't know who Oprah was, in which case, god help us all.
In any case, next time your almond milk macchiato comes scrawled with some truly insane spelling of your name, just remember it's not you, it's them.
