look at me being brave

I told my boss off today. A couple of months ago we got a new phone system, and he set it up so it says "for attorney Liz press 2." 1. I don't use Liz professionally; I use Elizabeth. Maybe I'm weird, but I like to choose who I let call me Liz. I don't like strangers doing it. (And his option is set up with Peter, not Pete). 2. No last name (his says Peter Stone). I haven't had to deal with much sexism in my life (mostly just guys assuming they know more about baseball than me), but I have a hard time believing that if I was guy named Elliot, that it would just say attorney Elliot. And I have never called an office where the options are just first names.

He was nice and said he will get it changed, but it still rubs me that I had to bring it up in the first place. (And I know part of it was probably that he still can't say Ripperda, which seriously, it has been 6 years. It is not that hard of a name. (And hey call my voicemail, where I give my whole name, and listen to how I say it.)
