Can I have your name?
The Starbucks in my office building has recently started asking for a name when you place your drink order - so they can call it out when your drink is ready. My Corner Bakery now does this too. It squicks me out, but I can't quite put my finger on why. Anybody else feel this way?→
Maybe there's safety in anonymity. I should start telling them my name is Wonder Woman or something.
Also, there has to be a business reason for this trend toward calling out customers' names. Do you think it's just a ploy to make the business seem friendlier? Or is there a monetary motive too that I'm just not seeing?
