Gymnast?

COWORKER: (whisper) So are you... (inaudible)?

SCOTT: What?

COWORKER: Are you (inaudible)?

SCOTT: Am I a gymnast?

COWORKER: Are you Jewish?

SCOTT: Oh, Jewish! No. It's the last name, isn't it?

COWORKER: Yeah. "Scheule."

SCOTT:
Yeah, I've had a lot of problems with that. I'm thinking of just changing it to "Schedule." For one, no more of these misunderstandings. Two, it's easier to spell. And three, it's just got a positive connotation. With a last name like Schedule, you know I'm going to be on time for things.
