    It's Not Hard!?!

    My name is spelt Jasmin. I know the majority of Jasmin's are spelt with an e on the end (It's jas-min not jas-mine!!). But it really frustrates me all the same. It never used to. That was until at my last job my log in for the computer was spelt wrong and so was my name on...

    It's Verrrry Annoying!

    I'm always surprised when people get my name right first time. I can't be bothered to correct people though.. I just get really annoyed when my teachers and people keep getting my name wrong.. even if I do correct them... Or sometimes they just keep forgetting it altogether...

    Are They Really Not Paying Attention??

    I hate it when I meet someone and we introduce ourselves the most.  I make it a point to use the person's name several times in the conversation. I notice thought that they never use mine once.  I know it's coming then...I'll see them again and use their name to ask...

    Why Can'T Anyone....

    ...get our names right? I have been called "Marcia", "Marga" and a dozen other varieties which are not right. Same with our last name. I have been called "Grieasenheimer", "Gooseyburger" and a few other twists of vowels and consenants. If you care and need my real name...

    Gets On Your Nerves

    My name is Dania. Where I live it's considered quite an unusual name.  Everyone asks: "What's your name?" Of course; I answer: "Dania, my name is Dania." To which their faces would shape into a confused expression, and they'd repeat some foreign name: "Diala? Danielle...

    It's happened too often

    and it sort of annoys me really. I mean, how hard can it be to remember a name after someone's said it thrice?! People keep on confusing my name with some other name or spell or pronounce it wrong. I have had to run after people too many times to get the spelling of my name...

    Ah... The Mistakes Of Parents...

    My mom and dad decided, when I was born, to give me a name that I love but that people don't get...  I'm Debbie.  Not Deb, Debby, Deborah, or any other such thing.  My teachers called me Deb, and on occasion it was okay... I tried to correct them but they were...
