Here is what my work email looked like when I came in to work today. I got a press release from a woman named Nicole, followed a few seconds later by another press release from a different woman named Nicole, followed a few seconds later by another woman named Nicole. I'm a newspaper reporter, hence the fact that I get a lot of press releases, but who would have expected all of those Nicoles?
I was struck by that, so I showed my laptop to Nicki, the other reporter who usually arrives early at the paper. And then I was struck by a thought, so I asked, is your real name Nicole? It is.
