More than $50 for a cup of coffee? Sorry Sydney, but that's just desperate

  More than $50 for a cup of coffee? Sorry Sydney, but that's just desperate The real reason a Sydney coffee business blew $60,000 on 100 pounds of green coffee is so they could try and stick it to Melbourne.That's how much Sydney Coffee Business owner Jason Kew paid to outbid a Japanese buyer in an online auction.

Always wondered why the Starbucks baristas mangle your name on your coffee cup ? And while we kinda just assumed all baristas ' teachers skipped vocab quizzes, it turns out there ' s a much more insidious reason why you got a cup reading " Mad-ah-lynn ".

Is the chain just playing one long and large prank on coffee drinkers everywhere? Not exactly. "We have never asked or directed any of our partners to misspell names of our customers for any But the main reason baristas get your name is wrong is that they are just insanely busy most of the time.

There's a sinister reason your barista just misspelled your name on your coffee cup© YouTube There's a sinister reason your barista just misspelled your name on your coffee cup It’s time to wake up sheeple, and a hot cup of coffee is not going to cut it this time.

Have you ever wondered why, time and time again your ‘coffee guy’ misspells your name?

“It’s Mark,” you bleat, as he deftly scrawls ‘Mork’ across your umpteenth disposable cup of the week.

It's early, you think.

That coffee machine must be loud, you reason.

But everyday it eats away at you that the man who remembers to ask how your grandmother's 76th birthday party went just can't seem to grasp the spelling of your one syllable name.

And then you realise. HE'S DOING IT ON PURPOSE.

Matt Preston says this humble "bogan" food is back in style. We're cheering.

  Matt Preston says this humble Put down your coffee in avocado, put back together your deconstructed salad and stop dehydrating your jus. According to Matt Preston, the real food making waves this year is “as bogan as moccasins with a mullet” and “the best thing since sliced bread”.

Your Starbucks barista may be more sinister than he seems. Picking up a cup of coffee with your name misspelled is the epitome of a first world problem. It’ s possible that your name is just hard to spell, but if you’ve got a name that’ s fairly common

Why do baristas always get your name wrong? Crazy theory explains. IF YOU’VE ever ordered coffee , you’ve also rolled your eyes at your misspelled name on the side of the cup . The YouTube video then played sinister music and the Starbucks siren glowed in the dark.

Now. Most people confronted with an hilarious misspelling of their name do one of two things:

a) They tell their friends and workmates about it, or

b) They upload a photo of the error to their social media account.

BOTH options involving spreading the name - and the notoriety - of the cafe from whence your caffeinated beverage came, did you ever think of that? Of course not, you probably hadn't finished your morning coffee yet.

But here's the thing. Have you ever wondered why Starbucks is able to operate in 23,768 locations worldwide?

Spelling. Unconscionably bad spelling.

Melissa becomes Mahyssa:

Helen becomes Jody:

The more bizarre the misspelling, the more likely you are to upload it online, until suddenly even your caffeine-free colleague are subconsciously craving five cups a day.

And then BOOM. Before you know it there's a bloody Starbucks on ever corner from here to Wollongong.

It's no coincidence, as this incredibly paranoid video will tell you:

Percolate over THAT for a while, friends.

Air rage, anxiety, stress: It's the airport's ploy to help you get you to your flight on time .
Airports are designed to stress you out. This is the theory.The stress you take onto the plane with you. The fact little things begin to annoy you: the armrest hogs, the chair recliners, the people with too much carry-on. The air rage. This could all very well be the product of something that's entirely intentional.
