NWR VENT: Work email, spell my name right!

I'm having a rough day at work today...just one of those days you know?


But you know what gets me EVERY time? My name is Nicole, my email address is nicole.lastname@company.com. Then WHY do people constantly, over and over send me emails with a greeting to Nichole. 


Do they think I spelt my name wrong in all those places? I guess I can see the first offense. But when I reply and my signature has my name spelt my way and they reply to Nichole once again.....


....I swear I'm going to stop replying to people who do this.


 


Vent over, thanks for listening! :D

Seriously?!!?!  Maybe spell their names incorrectly too?  I hate it when people don't look at the spelling of a name!

Totally agree!!! It's too funny/frustrating/and weird when people spell your name wrong and they can see it right in front of them!!!

I totally get it my name is Bridie NOT Birdie I am not a little bird.


I am named after the saint of the bride.


My legal name is Bridget not Bridgette and So I am always getting ticked off.

That's so frustrating! I went to a French elementary school, and the teachers constantly put an accent on the first "e" in my name (Stephanie.) It didn't really bother me until I got a bit older, around 9 or 10. My mom HATED it though! I lived on the Ontario/Quebec border so I guess people assumed WE weren't spelling my name right? Lol! My brother also went to a French high school and they never spelled our last name right on his report cards -we couldn't catch a break haha!

Very irritating my daughters name is Skyler but on all her school records they spell it Skylar. I have brought her actual birth certificate to show them the correct spelling and they still haven't changed it. The one secretary said it looks better with an "A".

My daughter has a Hyphenated first name and it took her birth cert to get it corrected, but her SS card only has spaces and I was informed by SS that they cannot have erroneous chars on names in the US SS database.

People used to spell my maiden name wrong ALL THE TIME and I used to get so frustrated.  I can definitely understand how you feel!


I hope they get it right soon!

Oh I totally feel you! NO ONE got my maiden name right, and now that I've thrown the hyphen in there...look out! They just give up when I get done spelling it and then say "hypen HA..." :)
