Alex, Connie, Kim, Morgan, Shannon and Pat (remember that Saturday Night Live character?) There are others, but these are a few names in my recent interactions that can be unisex. Most of the time when you read each of those names, 1 particular gender comes to mind. However, I have known people of both sexes with each of those names.
So this week after more than 11 months of IM or e-mailing to my co-worker there is an issue that requires a phone conversation. I dial the ext. a man with a deep voice answers the phone. I pause & look at the phone to make sure I dialed the right ext. & Connie laughs and says, "Yes, this is Connie; you thought I was a female didn't you?" Well, yeah. LOL!
Has this ever happened to you? Anyone?
