...are you sure your name is Sidney?"

I went in for an interview at this company and show my I.D. as I enter their building. They proceed to let me in.

I get to the front desk and say "My name is Sidney, I’m here for the interview".

She replies "Are you sure that your name is Sidney?"

My reply "Yes, I am sure".

To which she replies "Let me see some identification to verify". I show her my I.D., she looks at my ID and back at me again, confused.

Finally she said "Okay, we are not ready for you. Come back in an hour."
