And customer service is a bitch when I have to call about Internet, electricity etc because they assume I'm a woman impersonating the man on the account

I know how you feel. My name is Shawn and I have actually had people ask me, "Do you mean Shawna?". Like I don't know my own name!

I would ask them to put down that you are a female on the account.

What's funny is my brother is named Lee, and I call about my gas bill in his name sometimes. They assume Lee is a female, even though it's spelled L-e-e and not Leigh lol.

if you called customer service where i work, i wouldn't hang up on you :P 

that is what security questions are for. if you know those answers and the pertinents... then yes i can talk to you about your internet/cable.

It's really a pain in the ass. Apparently I have a second Account on my electric bill and I can't even ask what it is...
