The Name Game: It’s On

, , , , | Working | February 6, 2018

(My boss has a common name with a very uncommon spelling. While she can be fairly forgiving about people spelling it incorrectly, it does annoy her when repeat offenders don’t learn even after years. Yes, years. She’s also pretty good at spelling other people’s names right.)

Boss: *snarls*

Me: *questioning look*

(She shows me an invoice from a supplier. Splashed across the top is her name, spelled incorrectly. We’ve been dealing with this supplier for at least half a year, if not a full 12 months.)

Boss: “Next time I email [Supplier, whose name has three common variations], remind me to spell her name wrong.”
