Names

What is your first name?

How often, if ever, is it misspelled and how?

How touchy are you about people misspelling your name?

If a co-worker emails you and Outlook automatically populates your full name in the To: field, then there is no excuse for that person to misspell your name in the body of the email, y/n?

What is the most exciting thing you're doing this weekend?



Sara

Fairly often. Of course, I end up as Sarah.

I'm usually understanding, especially if I'm telling it to someone. If someone sees it in writing and still misspells it, then I get a little cranky but I won't say anything, unless it's something important in which the correct spelling of my name actually matters.

No excuse. Maybe because my name gets misspelled quite often, I'm a little sensitive to names and always ensure that I'm spelling them correctly. I don't get how you can misspell a name in an email when it's right there in the To: field. Maybe that's just me.

I'm babysitting Sunday. I need some extra play money.
