- Lola Cutter Hensel
Got it? Well, when I first brought in my paperwork to the seafood restaurant I work at in September, I brought with me an old but not-quite-expired passport in lieu of my social security card (which I lost). What I didn't realize at the time was that my passport still had my old name - the name my parents gave me and my family still calls me - from before I had it legally changed. So, for my first few months there, my name appeared in the computer system as:
- Laura Hensel
After some pestering, I got my General Manager to make the correction. Well, to attempt to make the correction at least. According to the computer systems, my name is now:
- Lola Hansel
Yet another manager is in charge of scheduling and apparently, in her opinion, my name is:
- Lola Jensen
That's what appears on the schedule she posts on the wall in the break room every week anyway.
A new General Manager recently came on at the restaurant and, as is to be expected, he has his own ideas of how things should be. Thus, he refers to me during meetings as:
- Lola Henschel
Every other week, however, I receive a paycheck and that check is made out to:
- Lola Hensel
I breathe a little sigh of relief every time I see this paycheck, and I take a moment to cherish the delightfully correct spelling of my name. So great is my gratitude that I am usually not saddened by the fact that said check is most often for zero dollars (this is normal for servers).
Here ends the entry. I'm off to watch Lost!
