The American Influence Number 1

At Disney when you forget your nametag you have to borrow a spare one. More often than not you get “Chris from Orlando” whether you’re a guy or a girl. But one night one of my male managers, who is from Haiti, was behind the counter wearing a “Nancy” nametag. He was serving a young foreign couple, and as soon as they saw his nametag, they looked scared and looked first to me and then to each other and said, “In America men are Nancies?”

I noticed afterward that the lady was pregant. I have no idea what country they’re from, but I’m sure that in a few months from now there will be a newborn Russian or Czech baby boy named Nancy, and his parents will say that “that’s what they name boys in America…”
