What's in a name

My first week on the job at a law firm and it was getting complicated.  The lawyer I was working for was named Russel (with one L).  We were working on a case and the lawyer on the other side was named Russell as well (but with two L's).  Then the mediator on the case was Mr. Russell -- Ugh! It was difficult to keep everyone straight.

Names can be comical at times. I once worked with a Mr. Smellie, Mr. Butt and my chiropractor's name was Dr. Dick. Sometimes names can strike me as funny...especially if I am tired.

Another man I worked for was named Ray Zerr.  You have to wonder what his mother was thinking...

I remember one of my bosses telling me that his neighbour, who was named Hazel, married someone with the last name Nutt, which of course would make her married name Hazel Nutt. Hmmm!

Oops! Wrong address...

I found this neat website with all sorts of screensavers you could choose from called  I had a nice peaceful meadow scene on my computer and a co-worker walking by thought it was beautiful and asked me where I had gotten it.  I started to type in the url address to show her, but what popped up on the screen was not exactly what I was expecting.  Instead of webSHOTS I had typed webHOTS -- which as you might guess by the name was quite a different website.  As I scrambled to try and get the images off my screen we were both laughing hysterically, but you can be sure I contacted the IT Department right away to let them know that I had accessed that particular site by mistake.
