Your Name Gets An Animated Response

| Working | December 9, 2015

(I have the fortune and misfortune of sharing the same last name as Walt Disney. As such, I often get teased to death, OR my name becomes a gag.)

Me: *in line at a coffee shop* “I’ll have a cappuccino, please. No whip.”

Cashier: “Okay, and name?”

Me: “[First Name].”

Cashier: “And last name, just in case there’s two of you.”

Me: “Disney.”

(The cashier looks up, jaw drooping. I sigh inwardly.)

Cashier: “You serious?”

Me: “Yup.”

Cashier: “So… you’re the one who green-lighted Mars Needs Moms? And Cars 2? And that god-awful Shrek series?”

(I am wildly confused by this point as this cashier ais actually serious. By now, the whole shop has gone quiet.)

Me:Shrek was Dreamworks.”

Cashier: *stares at me as I take my coffee and leave the shop*

(For some reason, he wasn’t in there the next time I went.)
