    I love when someone scribbles something on the diad and I asked them their last name and they're shocked that I want to know what their last name is. Or there's the rude people who are like, "read the board" when you ask them their last name and you still can't make it out. Its like, for 1, don't be a dick and for 2, whats your last name again?

    I had one super odd guy that always puts the name down on the receiving end as some movie star. Erik Estrada, Charles Bronson, Chevy Chase. Its pretty bizarre.

    I just put whatever is the last name on the package. Why waste time asking you can't read that crap anyways.

    when i was a swing driver, had one customer that owned a convenience store * his last name was a bizarre jumble of consonants * he would sign the board, hit the sig. key, and then with 1 index finger confirm the letters of his name * one time i offered to show him how to close out the stop; he just smiled

    They say, "What, you can't read that?" I say, "If I could read it, I wouldn't be asking."

    He will keep doing that until a package goes missing and his boss tracks it and wonders when Mickey Mouse started working in his receiving department. I've seen it happen.

    I have a guy named Shetter. The first time I asked him, "Like :censored2:ter, but with and E?" "Exactly!!!"
    I have several ways for me to remember other peoples names but don't think I should mention those on BC.

    Years ago I had this hottie store manager with Pinto for a last name. She'd say, "and I don't take it in the rear!"

    I do too. But, at business they aren't always addressed to a person and sometimes the person signing isn't always the person who its going to.
