An epic quest to find a barista, cashier or clerk who can spell my name correctly -- plus all you wanted to know about the name Cheryl, but were afraid to ask. (Reader submissions encouraged.)

Again, as with SHERELL a couple of days ago, the cashier reached right over the Sheryl Crow "100 Miles from Memphis" display to hand me back my debit card. (But don't shed a tear for Ms. Crow, it seems they've sold a few more since then.)
This misspelling is a little bit like fingernails on the blackboard, as it's only one letter from being SHRILL. Many people can vouch for me. I'm definitely not a Type A personality. I'm not prone to screaming, and the timbre of my voice falls more into a mellow alto range than a squeaky soprano.
Tomorrow I have one more for you to wrap up the month of August. And what goes better with coffee than pie? How about a pie chart? Hold on to your Excel spreadsheets!
