Mini Rant

Dear Certain People Emailing Me At Work,
My name, is Lindsay. Not Lindsey, not Lyndsey or Lynzi or however else other people like to spell it. I understand how you could make the mistake if I just verbally tell you my name (and God, when I was on the phones I was called called Wendy *so* often, I have no idea why). But if you are sending me an email, there is no excuse for you to mispell my name. My email address is Lindsay.lastname@comapnyname.com. If you are sending me an email, you have to have the correct spelling of my name, or I do not receive that email. To ignore the information you have on hand and just address me however the hell you want makes you look dumb and makes me annoyed.

No love,
Lindsay

Reminds me of when I worked at a grocery store back in the mid 90s. I had a name tag with huge font and capital letters that said "JENNIFER". One of the checkers in the store would always call me Roberta.
Oy.

Some people are just so careless, and really, it just makes you look bad. It would be nice if people could just take a second and actually pay attention.

Oh I can completely relate to that! My real name is Kathryn. Yes, that's not the most common spelling of the name, but when my work email address is Kathryn.Lastname, it's not rocket science! But yet I get Katherine, Catherine and Cathryn all the time. SO annoying!
