Unusual Names and a Life of Crime|
I had someone once tell me that during my resume evaluation one of the VPs said, "This chick can't even spell her own name!"
It led to a conversation wherein the conclusion that maybe that's just how my name is spelled was eventually reached. I can't imagine it helped, though.
taffimai: reminds me of an old Borscht Belt joke: one old guy walks up to another one and says, "Shapiro! You look terrible! You lost your hair, your teeth fell out, you're all hunched over three inches shorter..."
The other guy says, "You've got me mixed up with someone else, my name is Solly Goldberg."
"Gevalt! And you changed your name too!"
It's almost like...the Invasion of the Reverse Body-Snatchers! Or Anti-Capgras Syndrome!
Hee, yes, I've heard that one! I like Anti-Capgras syndrome, myself.
