    People never get my name right.. and if they do, they misspell it anyway! My name is Stacey, I get called Stephanie, and if someone writes my name it's Stacy. I'm so used to it now, but it used to bother me a whole lot.

    My Aunts Names..

    My mom will call me by her sisters' names before she corrects herself. It is kind of funny sometimes, but it can get annoying. Also, my name is quite uncommon, so I normally get variations of my name, but not my actual name. They will add a I to it or an extra E and it will...

    Rawr!

    I swear if one more condecending jerk calls me Red... I have a name, and a personality. And though I love my hair color, you would not like it if I called you brownie. So try to remember my name, or suffer my wrathfull looks.

    Mostly, I don't mind being called the wrong name. Thanks for the effort. Just don't call me BRITTANY!! I can't stand that and I hear it all the damn time. My own mother has called me Brittany before. (our neighbor is named Brittany) To me, they sound completely different!

    Wrong Accent.

    People Use To Call Me My Sisters Name All The Time

    I used to get called Rose-Mary at school and by other people at times... and I used to hate it... teachers would get our names mixed up and I would either feel embarrassed on their behave and not even bother to correct them or I would say "oh no I am Catherine-Margaret"
