How Many Ways Can You Spell “Eugene”?

Once upon a time I was thinking of making a web page listing every ridiculous misspelling of my name I encounter at fast food restaurants.

By far the worst offender has always been Fuddrucker’s. It seems they hire people who are both illiterate and deaf. I’ve had variations from “Ugee”, “Ujeen”, “U Jean”, “Yougin”, “Uji”, “Ujin” to my favorite “KC”.

I never got around to the page and then the miracle occured: For the first time ever, they spelled it right!

I had to at least commemorate that!
