You Can Call Me Great

I just signed for a FedEx package and, out of curiosity, went to the FedEx site to see how accurate the tracking function is. Sure enough, the website said:

10:18 am Delivered

I signed for the package at 10:17 am, so that seemed pretty on-target. I signed on a paper form, which was presumably interpreted by either the driver or a computer system. There are still some kinks in the system, though. That, or my handwriting must be more illegible than I thought because, now, posted with the package's tracking details, is my name:

Signed for by: R.GATSBY

That's The Great Gatsby to you, buster. It's just a shame that my first name doesn't begin with a J.
