Junie B. Jones doesn?t like her name. She told her mom and her father that she wanted to change it, and her new first name was PINKIE and her new middle name was GLADS and her new last name was GUTZMAN. Her mother and her father just looked at her like she was crazy. After her mother and father looked at her like she was crazy her father took her to his job. Then she noticed that it was not her father?s job, and she said hey dad, this doesn?t look like your old job. And he said, ?do not get me embarrassed? at the beauty shop. And she said, ?HEY EVERYBODY, MY FATHER IS WORKING IN A BEAUTY SHOP, HEY EVERYBODY, MY FATHER IS WORKING IN A BEAUTY SHOP, HEY EVERYBODY, MY FATHER IS WORKING IN A BEAUTY SHOP.? His boss said, what?s your name? And she said, ?my name is Pinkie Gladys Gutzman?. Hey Pinkie , do you want to sweep your father?s hair up? And then a lady came, and she said you swept my foot.
