Well, what about this?
Okay, so, first off, scroll down to the last post, where I express my potential distrust of a car salesperson named Cinnamon.
Okay. Here we go. What if she was named Karen, and when I showed up for my appointment in the morning, she came out dressed in a lion costume?
Is that still okay? Am I still supposed to take her seriously?
Or, what if, say, she came out dressed in a sixties op-art maxi dress and platform shoes?
Look. I like to wear "fun" clothes, too. But fun clothes are not professional attire. They're just not.
And a name like "Cinnamon" is not a professional name. Oh, sure, she may have a lot of knowledge in her field (or not), and she may be an excellent salesperson (or not), but unless and until she opts for a different name in her professional life, she's gonna have a hard row to hoe.
