One of my colleagues forgot my name, so they called me Ola

 

No problem, except he’s a tall, slender Nigerian man. I’m not angry, just confused. This reminds me of the time someone said I looked like a fat Whoopi Goldberg. I understand some people don’t know many black people, but the point of references are wild and reckless. If you don’t know my name, just ask. The worst thing I’ll do is pretend I don’t speak english.
