(I like joking with customers sometimes but…well, sometimes I get annoyed, because this happens all too frequently.)

Customer: Thank you for helping us! What was your name?

Me: Absolutely, my name is Royce. (Note, I am a woman)

Customer: *half joking* You were named after the car company?

Me: *after hearing this a bajillion times and having to fake laugh* Nope, I was named after the Brazilian jujitsu master!

Customer: *blank stare*

Me: …I’m kidding, my parents just thought it was a cool name…

(Although I guess I should be thankful: my mother wanted to name me Veronica so she could call me Ronnie!)
