    Do you have one?
    No one at work knows my name because my email signature is just a W :imslow:
    I constantly get emails addressed to Wendy or Wanda lol but my favourite was when someone sent me a "Dear Winona" :clap:
    The only other person that works in my office is the guy I'm training to take over for me, and his name also starts with a W so I'm pretty sure he's going to get the Wanda/Wendy emails when I'm gone. :D

    Mine has always been "Sir" and I refer to the others as "it." :)

    That must get confusing, when you say "come here, it" how many people show up?

    I generally use glaring eye contact to let it know it is the it required.

    @MarkFL I would have to number all the its to keep them straight. Unless they're all garbage employees, then I guess it wouldn't matter which one showed up when you called :)

    If I'm at my desk and don't feel like coming to the door to glare, I just yell for it, and then when they amass, point to the it I want, and dismiss the its I don't want with an irritated wave of my hand. ;)

    You really are a sir :eyepop:
    I've never been comfortable with that level of respect.. I used to have my retail team call me Chef instead of boss because it seemed less formal

    Ironically, it was my experience that Navy Chiefs hate to be called "Sir." I did that once with our Command Master Chief, and he was like, "Lookit, boy...Don't call me sir...I actually work for a living!" :)

    And they hate it when you say, "Sorry, Chief" because they take it as calling them a "sorry Chief," lol. :)
