Starbucks Barista Crushes Customer's Beyoncé Dreams

Or maybe they just didn't know how to spell it?

Everyone wants to be Beyoncé. Besides being #flawless and having a net worth of an estimated $250 million, she's also married to one of the hiphop world's biggest moguls, has her own vegan meal delivery service, and occasionally bathes in a hot tub filled with $10,000 bottles of Champagne. She's also got a badass new video that got the entire world talking, not to mention majorly boosted sales at Red Lobster.

So one can hardly blame a girl for trying to get in on a little of that Beyoncé glory. On a recent trip to Starbucks, a Vine comedian named JewishJen decided to tell the cashier her name was Beyoncé, but the barista apparently wasn't buying it: Rather than getting a cup emblazoned with the Queen Bey's name, her grande vanilla latte instead came emblazoned with "U. WISH." Way harsh, barista — after all, Mrs. Knowles-Carter isn't the only one in the world with that name. Then again, maybe they just didn't know how to spell it.
