Starbucks: Bennett, Colorado

Except vs Accept. This is a rather sad mistake: “…we cannot except tips!” Of course, this should read, “…we cannot accept tips!”

In general, except can be used as a preposition: I want everything in that frappuccino except caramel.

Accept, on the other hand, is a verb: I would gladly accept your tip; however, we are not allowed to take it since we made such a terrible spelling blunder.

Two in One!: I would accept any of the frappuccinos you offer except the one with all that caramel drizzle.

Don’t worry, dear Starbucks; no one will be attempting to leave a tip with a mistake like that!
