Special

Tracy: "Hello?"

Annie: "Hi, this is Annie at Dr. Grumpy's office. I was trying to set up the MRI for you..."

Tracee: "What time should I be there?"

Annie: "Well, we were looking for old studies to do a comparison. They had a few past MRI's for someone with the same last name and birthday, but the first names were all slightly different."

Tracey: "Oh, they're all me."

Annie: "All you?"

Traysee: "Yeah, I like to spell it different whenever I feel like it."

Annie: "Okay..."

Tracie: "That way it's special."

Annie: "Indeed it is."

Luckily she's already seeing a neurologist...

It's spelled 'Raymond Luxury Yacht', but it's pronounced 'Throat Warbler Mangrove'.

It's spelled Strut Jetstream, but it's pronounced Dusty Crophopper. It's Scandinavian.

Everyone in this world thinks he or she is special and that is where the trouble begins.

I love the Tracy/Tracee/Tracey/Traysee/Tracie business.

I work in the Identity Management section at a university with an associated hospital. This situation comes up more than you'd think, both with patients and with employees. And much for the same "special" reasons. :)

My Dad's second, now ex-wife, did that. After their divorce, she changed her name back to what it had been but changed the spelling. I guess she wanted a fresh start. Sort of.

Had a patient that changed her birthdate just about every time she came into the pharmacy. Made her history just a little harder to track down.

No, you're special

I'm just curious, but how would that work with billing?

Remember you are unique, just like everybody else...

Mbee, I'm not sure about Dr. Grumpy's office, but I had a bank that couldn't remember my name for more than five minutes. I stopped correcting them eventually, and they still sent stuff. They do it by account number, not the first name.
