Things that will get your attention.

At my company, we have a bunch of neighborhood shopping centers in NoVa, with a lot of first- and second-generation immigrants running businesses. I like to say that I know how to say, "motherbleeper" in a lot of languages, because I've had it mumbled at me in most of them.

Just now, my phone rings, and the caller ID says, "Jihad [last name]" and a phone number. I answer; it's a perfectly nice guy with a question, and his first name is "Jihad," and, yes, he's from a country in the Middle East.

Let's just stop and imagine how much crap that guy must put up with. And it's not like he said his name was, "Jerry, or "Bob," either. Nope, he's Jihad.
