My Name is Phyllis
Went to Wendy’s last week, after realizing that I was closer to this location now that I’m in a newer office 3x a week. As part of the process, they take your name down and call out to you once your order is ready.
It’s funny – a friend mentioned that I see to have regular trouble with my name like this, but also that I seem to be the one constant in every single scenario. So it’s very likely my own pronunciation or diction causing this.
No… no… I think it’s everyone else in the world that’s wrong, here.
Honestly, the “Phyllis” variation is a really fun one. I need to pay more attention, as each time this happens there’s a small sequence of hilarity that happens incredibly quickly: I mention my name, the person hears “Phyllis,” the person thinks “That’s a strange name for a dude,” and then the person thinks “Screw it, whatever. Phyllis.”
// Edit: Just realized the server spelled “Phyllis” wrong. I guess she did try to transform it into a dude’s name after all.
