That's not my name!

*post title inspired by THIS song*

During the course of the day, I talk on the phone quite a bit. I've been keeping a list of names that people have called me and it's getting hilarious.

~Keep in mind that I clearly state my name at the beginning of each conversation~

Here they are in alphabetical order:

D'Andrea ~the guy who called me this even commented on how much he liked my name. I just said "thanks."

Does anyone ever mistake your name for something else?


Dusty said...

Yes, I feel your pain. Most of the time when I introduce myself as Dusty I've noticed that people only tend to pay attention to the first syllable and assume that I go by Dustin. I also get Justin, Rusty, and Jason. The last one is a product of the fact that the interim youth minister here before me was Jason.

People don't mess up my name BUT when I call them about their bill and say I'm with "Bluegrass Cellular" they often get confused thinking I say "Blue Cross Blue Shield." And then they rant for 5 minutes about how they don't even have insurance with that company...

...and to comment on Dusty's comment, my Grandpa totally calls him Rusty. Hehe.

I don't have a problem with people mistaking my name for something else. But, people never seem to remember my name. For that reason, I call this song by the Ting Ting's my theme song.
