So this call that I just had with the doctor’s office surely boosted my confidence today.
Me: I need to set up an appointment.
Receptionist: Sure. What’s your name?
Me: Nathan Koch
R: Oh, is this for your son?
Me: No, that’s me.
R: Ohh, I’ve never heard Nathan for a girl’s name.
Me (confused and hesitating): Um, I’m a guy.
R: Ohhhhh. I’m sorry. You have such a nice soft voice.
And just so you know, doctor’s receptionist … my voice is appropriately manly and pleasant.
… I think.
