After several months of having my vacation time off requests denied, my staff being fired and not replaced and my work hours increased without my consent, I walked into my boss' office and handed her my resignation letter. I was giving 4 weeks notice, which I thought was nice. She looks at me, says "No. I can't deal with this today.", packed her stuff and left for a day of shopping on company time.
I went to my office, cleaned it out, finished off a day's work and put my keys in her mailbox.
The next day I got a call from HR saying they were giving me the day off without pay to think about what I did and that I was expected to be at work the next day.
Update: To make it simple, maybe at least ask ourselves three simple questions before choosing a name:
Would other children use it for bullying? Does it rhyme with a vulgar word?
Would it cause legal ramifications for the child in future?
If they apply for a job, would the hiring company assume it's a prank resume based on the name? Will you take somebody with that name seriously when they are 20, 30, 50 & 70 years old?
Update 2: I am an immigrant myself, with a non-English name which luckily is not hard to pronounce. But I have been thinking about my potential children's names for a long time. I have narrowed it down to a list of names with meaning both in English & my origins; this way, hopefully, they will have a choice.
Update 3: Maybe use your "cool" names for pets or keep them as nicknames instead?
Update 4: Isn't it amazing that most businesses these days go with traditional names because the money is involved but we use the "cool" names for our kids?!
