What's In A Name

Below is a real telephone conversation one of my coworkers just had. We work in higher ed. We have many international students. But this was not one of them.

“May I speak with Gina?

You mean Jenna? She no longer works here.

Uh ok, what is your name?



No Chrissy with a C.

Tracey with a Z?

NO, Chrissy with a Chr.

What? You are going to have to spell that for me Tracey.”
