@iadornyou:  Possibly because it is April? I know when I’m at work, I have a million things on my mind and I’m doing a million and one things at once. Probably just a multi-tasking oversight and nothing to take personally.

@iadornyou:  Oh no.  So sorry to hear this!  It reminds me of the episode of friends where Chandler’s coworker thinks his name is Toby and he never corrects him!

@iadornyou:  I just tried to get to my SO’s Facebook page to post something by typing “boyfriend” into the search bar. Yeah. We all have those moments.

I would just assume it was a typo/mistake. If she calls you by the correct name in person I think you can forgive her for a temporary case of The Stupids.

Hahah.

I have a friend named Tim Homerson – and his email address is [email protected].  He routintely receives emails from clients that he works with routinely addressed to “Thom” ir “Mr. Erson.”  No joke.  The worst part is when you see the email saying, “Best Regards, Tim” and the response comes back with “Dear Thom”

(Except that I made up the name – but same idea!)

@MexiPino:  The worst is when you have a brain fart and confuse the search bar with the status update bar. My work uses Microsoft Lync to message each other and you can always tell when someone gets the search and status bars confused b/c their status (until someone tells them and they change it) is something like “John Smith.”

This happens where I work all of the time. I work with some real crazies though.

I totally feel you. My name is Samantha and I am constantly called Stephanie by everyone. Coworkers, people I deal with on a daily basis, people I just meet. It doesn’t matter if I introduce myself as Sam or Samantha. They still change it to Steph or Stephanie. It truly floors me how frequently it happens. And they never pick another S name, it’s always Stephanie.

I’m a medic and one of the things I do is go into other towns ambulances and work with the people from those towns (they’re called intercepts). I went into the other ambulance and the EMT in the back called me Steph. I’ve known the guy for 3-4 years, we see each other a few times a month. No big deal, I corrected him and told him I get it all the time. We get to the hospital with the patient. Apparently one of the medics in the ED who I know pretty well was trying to get my attention by calling me Steph. I didn’t realize it but he came up to me afterwards and mentioned it. Yup, twice in less than an hour by two different people.
