One of the shops I worked at when it opened insisted on having full names on name badges. I said it was a bad idea, they said "no it'll be fine". Then every single female team member got multiple random-ass Facebook friend requests and messages, some of them outright disgusting. They changed the name badges shortly after that.

Later on in my career when I ran a coffee shop, I never stopped being amazed at the amount of people who would outright hit on any vaguely attractive female barista. I used to interrupt it when I could, but I wasn't around all the time, and I swear to god it happened once an hour+.
