I work in a call centre, as you can imagine I speak to a lot of people and the comments I get about my name make me laugh and get on my nerves at the same time.
Who else gets sick of the comments or being called a completely different sounding name
Take this middle aged customer for example ~
Customer: You names what
Customer: like the boy on packed to the rafters
Me: exactly the same, now about the reason you called
Customer: how does it feel to be named after an actor on a TV show? Are your parents big fans of the show? Is that why they named you *******?
Me: yes see they knew 27 years ago that channel 7 would make a show in 20 years time and have one of the actors characters in the show called ******** and they decided to name me that because they knew they would love show and be its biggest fans.
Customer: wow isn't that lovely. But your name is spelt different that his.
And it went on until I told her I've never watched and episode in my life and neither had me parents.
Also I've been told by a customer I have a name like a golden retriever.
Sometimes I wish I had a name like Jess or one you can find on those cups they sell lol
