There are probably millions of "Patti" is this world. So this is
really a dumb stupid question. Are you the Patti that was in
trouble with the law a few year ago?

I've started playing an interesting game with the coffee shop across from the office. A few days ago when I ordered a mocha, they asked me what name they should put on the cup.

"Your royal highness."

About 30 seconds later, she asked, "Would your royal highness like whipped cream?" And she used it again when the coffee was ready, even though I was standing right in front of her.

Today: "Are you still your royal highness?"

"Ah, no. I've changed my name to Chickiepoo."

It seems they're instructed to call the customer whatever the customer wants, so long as it isn't vulgar.
