Poor Utah. She works Customer Service for an insurance billing company, making doctor appointments for insurance claim customers (as near as I can figure out). She speaks to dozens of people each day and every day she has a story. Usually it’s how people butcher her name.
We didn’t give her an exotic name. She was named after my brother, who passed away while I was pregnant with her. It’s a form of Robert and the name of a bird. With a “Y”. Don’t make me say it, lol!
Anyway, it’s not hard to understand when spoken and at the very least the spelling could be off by that “Y”. She introduces herself and the company and trust me, she enunciates when speaking. So why do people have such a hard time with her name? Some of the names people respond back to her are;
Goblin? WTF people? Even if you didn’t hear her correctly, who names their kid Goblin? And she is definitely a woman, where do the guy names come from? People are morons.
I’m changing her name on the blog to Ruben. I actually laughed out loud when she posted that one on Facebook. I never liked “Utah” anyway. Still confused about why she wants to go there…
