Just stopped into a Taco Bell today to replenish my supply of Fire sauce packets. That of course requires me to make a small purchase, no big deal. When I walked into the store there was a young guy and he commented on my shirt. He exclaimed, "I like that shirt. It has the Jordan logo on it." I was wearing my season t-shirt from a couple years ago. Anyway a young girl then proceeds to take my order and then asks for my name so she can type it into the system so they'll know who to give my order to when it's ready. I reply, "Well because your coworker likes my shirt I'll be Bo today." She looks at me and smiles even though she obviously didn't get it. That's bad but excusable as she wasn't alive for much of Bo's life. However, she looks at the computer screen for a few seconds and then asks me, "How do you spell that?" Seriously, how do you spell Bo? And these people want $15 an hour....

Aren't you being a tad harsh there, 2.0? She could well have had "BEAU" or "BOW" (ribbon-tying) in mind, and wasn't sure which you "were", eh?

Context. Who in the world would have their name be "bow"? And haven't you heard a younger person use the word "beau" semi-recently? For some odd reason they pronounce it <BOO>. That is several years old though but though point is the same.
