  • Mood:
When I need to call work for something, I think I'm just going to start giving people my first name along with my last name as a matter of course. Around here, my last name is nearly as bad as "Smith" or "Jones" for trying to look someone up.

Also, I've started getting the "[lastname]? Do you know [insert distant relation lastname]?" To which I always feel dumb saying "Well, maybe", but there's a hell of a lot of us around here (phonebook.com says 59 people with my last name just in the city, let alone the county. And that's not counting those of us who aren't listed.)
