We have used the same local attorney since we were married. I called them last week and ordered a little work for them to complete for my corporation. In today's mail I received a letter from them with a cover letter and copies of what they had done.
It was on their letterhead with my address and name at the top left of the letter. Instead of starting with Dear Cliff, it began Dear Golkd.
I began laughing. I was by myself in the house and always feel silly laughing by myself. I first checked to see if I were to place my hands on the keyboard, on the wrong keys, if I could duplicate the mistake. Nope.
So the following went through my mind. In small communities we know a lot of people or at least know all about them. Nicknames are handed out at random for certain bodily characteristics or a play on their name or an embarrassing event they caused. Sometimes folks don't know about their nicknames. I never knew if I had a nickname or not. Until now. My attorney's secretary apparently doesn't know the small town rules. You aren't supposed to tell. See you later.
