A Yuneek Name

, , , , | Right | April 5, 2019

(My name is Monika, which is pronounced exactly like Monica. My parents just chose the K because it would make my name unique. We all wear name tags at work so a lot of customers try and use our names.)

Me: “Can I help you guys with anything?”

Customer: “You sure can, Mow-neek-ah.”

Customer’s Wife: “It’s pronounced, ‘Monica,’ dumba**.”

Customer: “Well, it looks Spanish.”

Me: “Actually, it’s the German spelling.”

(I can’t tell you how many people mispronounced my entire name because of one letter which makes the same sound.)
