“The value of a name at a Bank!”
A donut I just started woking as a telemarketer at a Canadian bank. For those who have worked in call centres, after training new employees typically get a diploma confirming training completion.

On my diploma they rampantly misspelled my last name. I have an Indian last name, and my last name was spelled like my boss's first name.

Two days after looking at the major mistake, I asked my boss if I can get the name changed. His response was "No, do you want to see how many diplomas have spelling errors?" I was fuming and I knew I would soon leave this dump.

The day after I told my boss I took his comments personally since my name has not changed in 28.5 years. I told him I am sure people mess up his name, he confirmed to me that on his University Diploma, his name was misspelled.

He got the name changed and I quit a week later. LINK
