The Last Word—Scott Ginnetti

Scott Ginnetti
Director of People Development, Baptist Health Care

What is your chief characteristic?
I’m always thinking (and not always listening), and as a result often repeat what others have already said as if it were my own idea. If this ever happens to one of my friends they call it “Pulling a Scott.”

What do you appreciate most about your friends?
When we make time to get together we pick up right where we left off.

Who is your favorite fiction character?
JD, from the TV show “Scrubs”

Who is your favorite non-fiction character?
Ben Franklin

What is the best thing you have ever won?
On the last episode of “Frasier” they advertised a promotion to register online to win a trip to Seattle. Well…we didn’t win the trip to Seattle, but we won 4th place—a year’s supply of Pepperidge Farm
Milano cookies!

What did your mother always tell you?
“Stand up straight!”

What is the worst idea you’ve ever had?
I’m sure my wife has a long list, but I would say trying to teach my wife how to drive a manual car. In case you’re wondering, yes, we’re still married—we just celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary.

What is your favorite food?
Global Grill’s blue cheese stuffed filet with lump crab meat on top

Which talent would you most like to have?
I prefer super powers, so for me it’s the ability to fly.

What movie do you love to watch repeatedly?
Any of the Harry Potter movies

What was your most embarrassing moment?
I was running to stop a small passenger bus for me and my friends after an Atlanta Braves baseball game. I looked behind me to make sure my friends were still there and ran into the back of the bus, which had stopped. I then fell backwards, just like Wile E. Coyote in the Road Runner cartoons, with hundreds of people around to watch and see.

What TV show is your guilty pleasure?
“So You Think You Can Dance”

What is the last book you read?
“The Screw Tape Letters” by C.S. Lewis

What is your theme song?
“Your Smiling Face” by James Taylor
