Saturday Night Social

Happy Saturday, everyone!

Are you breaking out your summer dresses and begrudgingly donning shorts? Are you wearing flowers in your hair and/or being mildly freaked out that it's nice outside? Or is it not nice outside and you're still clinging to the comfort of your cardigan? If so, I envy you.

brotherjo: no commercials, no mercy

I'm starting a campaign! I'm really tired of CSRs and new business contacts assuming I'm Mrs. Lastname when (a) I'm not married and (b) when I do marry, I'm keeping my name, so I'll be Ms. Lastname forever. Now, when someone calls me Mrs., I say, "I'm not married and it offends me that you assume I am. Please call me Ms." I've only tried it twice so far, but it does seem to work.

I posted about this on facebook, and several friends said they'd join me. My mom pointed out that even with a married name, she never liked being called Mrs. "Mrs. Lastname was your grandmother."

Only a few million more women, and it'll be a party!
