Mel, a colleague of mine despises her full name, Imelda. She was apparently named after the former first lady.
One time in her branch, Levin, an officemate, visited her. Levin wondered why one time a teller was talking to her, “Ms. Melody! Ms. Melody!”
Levin asked, “Bakit Melody tawag sa’yo dito?”
Mel answered, “Akala nila short for Mel. Ok lang kesa Imelda.”
