Other

bought an Oyster card online last week, so that I was prepared when I arrived in London village later today.

The application form asked for my Title. Options were:

  • Miss
  • Dr
  • Mr
  • Mrs
  • Ms
  • Prof
  • Other

Naturally, I selected “Other”.  But there was then no-where to enter my actual title, my “other” title.

So last week I received a letter addressed to “Other Gareth Saunders”.

While I’m here

Who on earth ordered that list?!  How about the male-centric ordering of:

  • Mr
  • Mrs
  • Miss
  • Ms
  • Dr
  • Prof
  • Other

Or the ladies-go-first option of:

  • Ms
  • Miss
  • Mrs
  • Mr
  • Dr
  • Prof
  • Other

Or even the mostly-alphabetical but turns out to be partly hierarchical (by placing Other at the end):

  • Dr
  • Miss
  • Mr
  • Mrs
  • Ms
  • Prof
  • Other

One thought on “Other”
