This week’s poem is brought you by ex-co-workers at an insurance agency in New York, NY. While employed as a customer service representative, I often received complaints from individuals with bizarre company names or intriguing personal names. Once a week, at minimum, I would shout out across the cubicle: Oh. My. God. This Broker Has The Worst Name.
I always jotted them down or took a screenshot and would rarely reference it again but would be awfully amused for the next thirty minutes. My ex-co-workers apparently just get me and they kept a running list of these names after I left (shout out to Yasemin and Jack!) and sent me an email of them a few months ago.
This email sits in my inbox as “starred” – i.e. very important – and I open it every now and then for a good laugh. This poem-list feels incredibly appropriate for this platform and I’m glad to share it with someone else now.
I hope you’ll come back next week for more words to motivate you to check that email one more time.
