Truly Terrible With Names

| USA | Funny Names

(I have a more ‘unique’ name for a girl. If someone just skips over my name or says it wrong, I don’t correct them. But sometimes people want to clarify.)

Me: “Good Afternoon. [Vet Clinic]. This is Joie. How can I help you?”

Caller: “Hi. Did you say your name was Jody?”

Me: “No, sir. Joie.”

Caller: “Joanie?”

Me: “Uh, no. Joie. Like a baby kangaroo.”

Caller: “Oh, you said Julie?”

Me: “No, sir, Joie. But that’s okay. How can I help you?”

Caller: “And your name isn’t Julie?”

Me: “No sir. It’s Joie.”

Caller: “I prefer Julie to your name.”

Me: “Uh…”

Caller: “Can I call you Julie at least? I don’t like your name.”

Me: “No. No, you cannot.”

Caller: “Okay, I will call back later when I can talk to someone with a better name. Bye.”
