There are a lot of ways that parents can make the lives of their children miserable. One way for parents to start early down this path is to give their child a stupid name:
A Southwest Airlines gate agent at John Wayne Airport is accused of being awful in front of a five-year old girl – and on social media – because of her unique name.
The girl’s mother says the agent made fun of the name and even posted a photo of her boarding pass on social media for others to chime in.
Five-year-old Abcde Redford pronounces her name “ab-city.”
I guess some points go to the parents for at least getting five letters of the alphabet in the correct order.
Granted, I don’t think that the gate agent should have made fun of the child because the child was innocent. They should have ridiculed the parents for picking a name that would so inevitably cause their child to be picked on. If you want to give your child a unique name, there are a lot of excellent choices that aren’t as likely to result in ridicule from schoolmates (and gate attendants) as Abcde.
