I’m a theatre tech. Our overworked tech director is giving us a rundown of what the rest of the week’s rehearsals will be like. It should be noted that I have a distinctly feminine name, the small tech crew is standing in a circle, and I am straight across the circle from him.

Tech Director: “Today we’re running through all the scenes with the rigging, and we hope to have some scripts back here by Saturday. [My name] isn’t here today—”

Me: “I’m right here.”

Tech Director: “Oh—uh—no, not you, someone else—what was their name? Uh . . . [Male Name]! [Male Name] isn’t here.”

It took all of my effort not to burst into laughter until after he had left the tech booth.
