MY FRIEND, a county public health nurse, was reviewing a student’s medical records when she noticed something: The girl and her mother shared the same first name.
“Doesn’t that ever get confusing?” my friend asked.
“Oh no,” the girl said. “I just call her Mom.” OVERHEARD ON THE JOB Boss to line worker: I need you to do such and such.
Line worker: You didn’t say the p word.
OUR UTILITY CUSTOMERS often don’t understand the intricacies of their bills. Recently, a man called asking how much he owed.
