It's good to be a girl ...

My insurance company recently sent a document to me that indicated they thought I was male.

The funny thing is ... this is NOT the first time this has happened, or even the second!

I'm quite a girly-girl, so at least it's not an indictment of my appearance.

But I DO have a strange first name, and my last name is a commonly-used man's first name.

So, often data-entry types will see my name, assume it's reversed, and assign me the wrong gender. One college I applied to made this mistake. I would have had a very interesting time in the dorms, if I'd ended up going THERE!

I think I've gotten insurance-company straightened out.

Which is good, since I'm wearing a skirt today, and I'd hate to have to go home and change. :)
