My last name is Ramirez (and i’m proud of it - thanks Pops!). When i was job searching back in the late 80’s (old school style via fax) a friend mentioned i’d probably get more responses if i used my mother’s maiden name Morgan. I did and guess what … yup. Of course, i had to explain the name issue but my lie ended up being good enough. Sad but true.
