I heard this on NPR. Verizon suggests a man change his name because the computer system will not allow him to register his name, Lipshits, because it contains s**t in it. It takes several phone calls and discussions, and approaching the press, to get the company to find a work around. Think of how much more productive we can all be as long as we all fit within the system guidelines. As long as we all fit into the proscribed parameters all is hunky dory!
