When in Starbucks, you need to order your coffee like all of the other Starbucks regulars, no matter how dumb it may seem. And though some may question the already questionable lexicon that is employed when ordering a “tall” cup of coffee, almost nobody questions it…until now.

Recently, an English professor named Lynn Rosenthal, was forcibly removed from a Starbucks after she was involved in an argument with a barista over her refusal to use the popular Starbucks jargon while placing an order.

Rosenthal was quoted as saying, “Linguistically, it’s stupid, and I’m a stickler for correct English.”
