That Guy

Someone just sent out an email at work announcing a reorg inside one group. Apparently one guy insisted on being listed as “John Smith, PhD“. [emphasis mine] I have no problem with people using “Dr.” instead of “Mr.” or “Ms.” or with listing their appellations, e.g., PhD, CBE, in a formal setting. But in an internal memo where the recipients already know the bloke? Sheesh.
