I made the IT guy at work shorten my last name to just the first initial of my last name.
It makes me uncomfortable when customers, or in my case, patients, know my last name.
It’s not that I have anything to hide, but what’s to prevent a disgruntled patient from looking me up in the phone book, paying me a visit to my home?
It’s already so easy to find people nowadays, why make it any easier?
I’m sure people at work think I’m paranoid, but I like to think I’m cautious.
You just can’t trust people anymore.
