Have To Pause For “The Second”

, , , | Right | September 12, 2018

(This conversation occurs often. I accept inbound calls and have to verify personal information, including if a caller has family members who share the exact same name.)

Me: “Do you use a generational suffix with your name, such as Junior, Senior, the Second, or the Third?”

Caller: “MD.”

Me: “Yes, sir, but do you use a generational suffix like Junior or Senior? II or III?”

Caller: “MD.”

Me: *giving up* “Sir, do you have a father or son with the same first, middle, and last name as you?”

Caller: “Yes. My father and I have the same name, but we only have the same last name, different first name.”

Me: “That’ll do.”
