I have been bugging Management for weeks now, telling them that I want a name tag. Finally last night I went to yet another supervisor and told them I wanted a name tag. The Supervisor, Chris, said they didn't have anyone in the office to order one for me. However, they had one name tag in the back office. The store has NEVER had an employee named Chelsea, so I opted to adopt the name for the interim.
Only one customer yesterday called me Chelsea. He asked me what my name was, and since I have issues with telling a lie, I just pointed to the name tag. Afterward I felt so silly that I went and told Chris what had happened. My nickname is now Chelsea at work, and it's getting around quite fast. Already I answer to the name.
Perhaps this is a good choice for a Pen Name. Now I just need a last name to go with Chelsea.
