Beth works in the medical field, and is required countless times a day to give non HIPA related information out to third parties on the phone. For security protocol, a name and job title is always requested. This gets boring, and demeaning, quickly. On an Anything-Can-Happen Thursday she takes some license with her title of “Records” or sometimes “Secretary.” They started as random but now relate to what office was talked about that day. Example titles include “Office Ray of Sunshine,” “Zombie Defender,” and “Hope for All Mankind.”
