I work PT at a coffee shop, we also have 4 sizes. Personally, I think this is not worth the trouble. People understand 3 sizes. Small, medium, large. 3 sizes! Easy! But, I am not the boss.

Whenever I am at a Starbucks and they ask for my name on the cup I tell them it is Sparticus. A few bitchy girls have refused to write it though...

I always order a small...death* to anyone who won't accept that and makes me repeat the order as "I'd like a tall coffee" *death is to be interpreted as a frown and a condescending look that says "really?"

So when you order a small, do you get a short or a tall?

When they call the name, do you go "I am Spartacus!"

G********, you beat me to the punch. Next time I go to Starbucks I am going to do this. I'll have to make sure that there are a few people old enough to get it.

I was going to say - she misspelled Spartacus. Which, incidentally, is a much better way to annoy English majors, myself included. It's nowhere near misuse of punctuation marks though, that is the worst.
