Oh, and the guy at Komtrak that I talked to was named Mike. And he began by offering to hang up and call me back so he'd be the one paying for the call. I agreed to that, and we did that, and I placed my order. And then a few minutes later, he called me back to make sure I was aware of the quality of the sketch paper; their new stuff is whiter and more textured. I told him I was, and thanked him for going that extra mile to make sure I was satisfied.

Then Mom and I went out to lunch at Collina's. This was the same Collina's I was parked in front of when my car was broken into. The waiter who served us was the same one who helped me and called the cops when the incident occurred. We thanked him again and talked with him. His name was also Mike!

So... three cheers for people named Mike!

I sit at a desk in a block of 4 x 2 desks.

Next to me on my right is Mike.
Opposite me is Mike.

Of the others, three have the last name Patel...

I have several people named Mike at my job. They get all of us confused, I think there is 5-6 of us (I'm one of them). :P

I really like the world in which you live, even when it has its unpleasantries (such as your car being vandalized). No, I'm not being snarky.

If you're not writing for money, I think you should consider that.

Amazingly, of the 88 people in my office, none goes by a variant of Michael. Or David. Or John. Is there some subtle job discrimination?

YMMV, I suppose. One of my main tormentors in elementary and jr. high was a Mike (and, after encountering him on Facebook, it seems he hasn't grown up that much) and ever since then I've been wary of Mikes. (Hmm, now that I think about it a good friend of mine (a different one of course) is named Mike, but the bully was the one that came to mind first.)

How dare he sully the name of Mike! Maybe he should be called Sully instead of Mike. Except then Pixar would sue.
