The office next to mine hired a 19 year-old kid back in August. It's a strictly part time job that maybe involves working up to 24 hours a week. Most of that time is done when I'm not around. So I almost never see this kid.
I hear about the kid. The company next door is almost exclusively women and has been since I've been working for my employer. Which means most days I get to hear about everything. The way I was first told about this kid the term used was "he/she".
To be fair this person does remind me a bit of Pat the sexually ambiguous character from SNL's skits. The kid has some things stacked against him. He is over weight. He dresses in baggy cloths. He is a late bloomer, and his voice hasn't deepened as much as most guys. He even wears a black "I (heart) Haters" ball cap. The worst thing is that he has an unusual name. It's a girls name.
Apparently his mother saw a TV show that had a male character on it with this female name, a very female name. Think "A Boy Named Sue" without the masculine toughness. She decided that her baby just HAAAD to have this name, it didn't matter that he was a boy.
Sure his mom didn't know he would have a heart problem that would result in a pacemaker and several hospital stays be fore he turned 16. She didn't know that this would result in his having a hard time with his weight and getting a slow start maturing. She knew she was giving a boy a girl's name. Even in the best of circumstances she was making his life harder than it needed to be. As it turns out mom's special method of picking a name has turned the boy's life into a living hell.
