You can call me Ray, or you can call me Jay...

I've gotten some interesting responses to my blog entry about not being allowed to use the title "Mrs." when I fill out forms, including one from a royal personage. My husband responded, as well. He says a friend of his wondered how much attention professional organizations really pay to what people put on the registration forms for attendance at, say, a national convention. On impulse, instead of listing his proper title -- "veterinarian" -- the man wrote: "Ruler of the Universe." Sure enough, when he arrived at the convention and picked up his official nametag, beneath his name was "Ruler of the Universe." He spent the next five days wearing it.

I'm not sure there's any point to this story except that it's interesting that at the same time people are becoming more controlling about how we identify ourselves on paper, fewer people seem to be paying attention to what we actually put in those little boxes. Either that, or veterinarians really do rule the universe....
