    My name is Kevin.


    How do people get "Keith" (while not a bad name) out of Kevin. At work, folks call all the time for "Keith." I say, "No, Keith works here." They say, "You're the one I talked to earlier. What's your name?" I say, "Kevin." They say, "Yeah, you're it."

    So, now, not only does my name change, suddenly I'm "it."

    Gee, thanks.

    What names do you get called when folks mess it up.


    I won't list the other names people call me...) :eek:

    Hello, my name is Deborah and I'm an alcoholic.

    But seriously folks!

    Generally people always shorten my name to "Debbie" which really ****** me off cuz I HATE that name! >< It either sounds like an annoying 3 year old with a runny nose or a skanky cheerleader... and I don't like either. So if someone calls me "Debbie" I proceed to punch them in the face.

    And I swear, if anyone comes on here and says "But my mom's name is Debbie!" I will not care. I hate it when people do that as if automatically that's gonna change my opinion on the name... it's a stupid name!

    But other then shortening of it, I get Brenda A LOT! People mistake my name for Brenda ALL the time... I don't even know how.

    ^_^ Debo

    Since we're on this subject....DO NOT CALL ME "MANDY"!!!!!!! It makes me VERY ANGRY. You do want to see me VERY ANGRY. :mad: :grouchy:
    .....This lady called me "Amy", once. For FIFTEEN MINUTES this woman kept calling me "Amy"!!!! I'd correct her, she'd say, "Oh, OK", and then start right back up w/the "Amy" thing again a minute later!!!!! Grrrrrrr......
    And people are ALWAYS confusing me w/my big sister, so I guess you could say my other name's "Christina." I don't get it....I mean, yeah, we look a heck of a lot alike, except for that whole fact that I'm 6 inches shorter and about 10 pounds heavier....(I'm a lil' chubby, and my sister's skinny as a rail.) It's not THAT hard to tell us apart!!!!!! Grrrrrrr...... :mad: :grouchy:

    I was just called by a customer who requested "Montgomery."

    'There isn't a montgomery that works in this office sir.'

    "Well, it's YOUR voice. You're him."


    'Trust me, sir. I've been me for 30 years, and I'm definitely not 'Montgomery."

    "Who are you then?"

    :attitude: "Kevin!"

    'Yeah, you're him, then.'

    Oh man, PERFECT thread!! Ok, so my name is Kristin. That's what I like to be called...that's ALL I like to be called. So that does not include "Kristy" as my neighbor has called me since I was born. That does not include "Kristine" as my bus driver called me since kindergarten. That DOES NOT, I repeat DOES NOT include "Kris" as my tennis coach called me ALL THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL and that my friends now call me when they want to make me mad!
    So to sum up...KRISTIN is the only acceptable name!! And please please please spell it right! With and "I", not and "E", as a great majority of people in my class could not seem to grasp the "I" concept even after we'd been in school together for 12 years!:mad: :smirk: :attitude:

    I don't like being called 'Lukester' all that much - i had a job at a tabloid newspaper long time ago and the BIG boss who must be obeyed always called me 'Lukester' when i saw him in the lift or he wanted something. I couldn't really say anything about it cos thats not the done thing with people that important.

    People keep adding an S to the end of my last name (I'm not goin to tell what it is). This might not sound as bad as what everyone else is telling. But when over twenty people make the same mistake, it starts to become a pet peeve.

    Oh, last names.....Grrrrrrr.....See, my last name's Italian, and it's not really all that hard to pronounce, but for some reason, PEOPLE ALWAYS GET IT WRONG!!!!!!! Grrrrrr.... :mad: :grouchy:

    So what does that make me? I'm well over 25, and a mom. :confused:

    I refuse to answer to DEBRA because that's what my mom called me when I was in deep ----. (or my dad was being butt and called me De Bra!:mad: ) I was Debi until there were too many of us in the same office, and proceeded to shorten it to Deb.

    Yours Proudly and Truely:flirt:,

    Boo to you too! You stole my name!

    Well, theoretically you could say I stole your name since I'm younger, but... but still! You stole my name, dude!

    I'm just kidding... hmmm... maybe if we get a few more Deb's on here we can take over the board!

    And I'll be your glorious leader, Debo! (Y'see, the 'o' makes me special) XP

    ^_^ Deb-O!

    On the same note, I do have pet names from friends and family.

    As a kid, my uncle called me Luigi for some reason.

    Nowadays, I get called "Kev" or "Muley" and, because I thought it was funny to sign my email that way one day, I get called "Kevmodee." No problems here, though, except I'm not italian, and Muley is a seperate identity than me.

    Folks just like Muley better.

    I never really liked being called Scotty by my family. Strangely enough, no one ever called me Scooter. After I saw Jimmy Stewart in Vertigo, I thought Scottie was cool, but only it you spell it with the ie.

    But whatever you do, don't EVER call me Shpaenklemeustghauf!
  17. I am not Brian.


    Unlike Debo, nothin' against the name, and I ain't gonna go so far as to flame it. :p But I hate bein' called that---now, I understand, Byron isn't that common a name today, and if someone meets me new and says "Brian", and iffin' I correct 'em and they profusely apologize, that's okay.

    But if they've known me for YEARS and still do it time to time, that's kind of annyoin'.

    Or worse, if they're lookin' at my name in WRITING and still butcher it!!

    "You idiot, can you not READ?!?! Don't just assume it's a word contained in your li'l vocabulary, open your mind and try to expand your 'brain'!"


    *still smartin' after "the incident" durin' his big moment at college graduation*

    Aww, I think Shpaenkie is a cute name!:flirt:

    My name... is Chris.

    But since that name is so common people normaly call me by my last name Sisson (sis-sun) not Siy-Sun or Sissums or Scissors or See-Zon. sis-sun!!!!

    Ohh and my full name obviously is Christopher but on all my school papers it reads "Christoph" so I get called Christoph alot. and then you have the nick names: Christopher Columbos, Christopher Robin, etc....

    now sometimes they call me Pig-Pen. Not cause I'm dirty, just cause I played him in youre a good man charlie brown.
