Good luck getting this bunch to care
You know what? I actually do care. I’ve spelled it wrong on here more than once. I’ve had my name misspelled my entire life. Appreciate the correction. I won’t do it again.
You are welcome Don. I do try. Bumper’s last name is Pool.
And razorgator, when people know that I am a woman, they try to spell my name with an i or ie. I would rather get mail sent to Mr. Marty C than see my first name misspelled.
Of course, the truly annoying misspelling happens when someone responds to a Facebook post and spells it wrong … right under the correct spelling. That always makes me shake my head.
My name is Clay Henry. Jean Ann thought I was Henry Clay for a few dates. I didn’t care. I was excited she would take my calls.
When in doubt I like to use initials. F. Franks works well. I have never done well with the Clark or Clarke thing. 50 % chance of being right on that, yet I never am. Including yesterday.
They should. One of the most basic forms of respect is to spell and pronounce a person’s name correctly. If one doesn’t care about that then they shouldn’t care for being called out and/or ignored all together.
Maybe it’s a teacher thing. When I have students who have both a first and a last name that are common first names, it’s so easy for me to reverse them when I’m trying to learn names. I have a student this year that I keep having to think what his first name is for the same reason, and I’ve called him by his last name a few times (thinking it was his first name).
Well played Marty with a Y. I am guilty as charged, misspelling his name the other day.
Feleipe’s spelling of his name is unusual. I can see why people get confused.
Clay did Jean Ann think you were a descendant of the famous Kentucky Senator?
I’ll guess Clay is putty in Jean Ann’s hands…
One golfer friend called me mud at the state amateur when we were finishing in the rain. Clay turns to mud in the rain.
