“I didn’t know you changed your last name too!”

Posted in transgender, work at 2:57 pm by Michael

Yesterday at work I was in a meeting where everyone didn’t know each other – I knew most everyone, but not *everyone*. I had been joking around with one of the other women there… basically being a pain. No surprise.”

When it came time for me to introduce myself, I said “Hi, I’m Megan Troublemaker.”

Without missing a beat, Betsy said:

“I didn’t know you changed your last name too!”


I almost fell off my chair laughing.

I pass this along for a couple reasons:

a) funny

b) my transition is transparent at work, and people have become so comfy with it, they joke with me about it.

Pretty cool!
