Other crap that's on my mind.

A website about things you probably don't care about, but I do so shove it.

Why would Arliss be my first name?

Today, 6:15 am.
Location: Gold's Gym counter.

Me: I forgot my card thingy today. Can I just give you my name?

Stupid fucking girl at the counter: Sure, what is it?

Me: Barrie Arliss. B. A. R. R. I. E A. R. L. I. S. S

SFGATC: Whoa, can you say that again?

Me: Sure, B. A. R. R. I. E. (longer pause) A. R. L. I. S. S

SFGATC: So, it's BARB....

ME: NO, B. A. R. R. I. E. ARLISS

SFGATC: It's not coming up. What is it again?

I look over, and she's been typing Barrie as my last name.

Me: Barrie is my first name.

SFGATC: OH, so what's your last name?

Me: It's I'm gonna kill you with the biggest knife I can find and feed you to the "homeless" 20 year old girl who asks me for change every day outside the QFC.

SFGATC: Cool, have a good workout.

Me: Thanks. Bye!

i know this. but have you ever met a girl named arliss? and if i said my name is barrie arliss, would you think that i was saying it like last name first, first name last?

i honestly think this girl was just a little retarded. and not in a downs syndrome kinda way.
