So far my job at Parkview is going pretty well. I can say I definitely like the pay checks as well! Everyone I work with is nice and all the employees working in the hospital are cheerful as well. There is this guy in the gift shop that is super nice and easy to talk to. He always has something to say and always asks how my day is going. There is a funny problem though. He thinks my name is Curtis for some reason. When I first met him, I am pretty sure that I introduced myself as Justin. Yet, I think the second time I saw him he started calling me Curtis. I just let this go, because I think it is simply funny. I am wearing my name tag that hangs from my collar everyday! It has my name right on it, yet he is convinced my name is Curtis. There was a volunteer working in the gift shop I had not met yet, so he introduced me to the volunteer as Curtis. So now, I am known as Curtis by two people!
I figured I would just let him keep calling me by that name, because I would not want him to feel embarrassed if he ever found out. If he ever does look at my name tag and wonder why it says Justin, I think I will say “Curtis is my middle name. That’s what my friends call me. My birth name is Justin.” I think that would make it less embarrassing for him. I should have corrected him before, but he sounded so sure that my name was Curtis.
That is just a funny little story I thought I would share! – Justin aka Curtis
