Duh. You misspelled my name!

*facepalm*

Sounds funny? NO! Put yourself in my shoes. You will also find it awkward and irritating!

Very often, I am surprised how often people misspell my name. Worst, how can you type my name wrong when you are on my blog?

My name is written everywhere, from the address bar to the bottom part of the page, without forgetting the large banner, the sidebar and so many places more. I could even write my name on your face if the technology allowed me to! pff.

Are you blind? Do you have any other health/ eye sight issues that transform the “V” into a “W” or eat up the “Y” or insert additional letters?

Very often, I get comments or mails addressed to some Yashwin, Ashwin, Ashvin.

Sorry but I don’t reply to mails/comments not addressed to me and if ever I sent you the link to this blog article, then you seriously have to think twice before talking to me the next time.

A quote to end the article :
Remember and use people’s names when you talk to them. 

A person’s name is uniquely sweet sound to them (Robin Sharma)

  • Actually, it’s Dale Carnegie in 1936 who first set out this key principle (among the 6 that will make people like you).

    Remember that a person’s name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language.

    At least, you’re not paying anything for it. My cousin recently got his first pack of business cards from a printing house in port louis, don’t know where exactly. They wrongly wrote his last name. He’s still using it though.

  • lol. I am lucky that I haven’t reached that stage yet 😛

  • I don’t think so. Some people are so careless that whatever name you will tell them, they will always say it wrong.

  • Dakor nett. In your case, it happens from carelessness and/or laziness.

    But what would you say if someone did it VOLUNTARILY?

    Who knows Mr Armandine, the ‘famous’ music teacher…? What’s that bloodily unrelated question, you may be asking…

    Well, this mister has the uncouth manner of distorting each and every students’ names he comes across, abusing of his position of senior teacher especially on ti-form-ènn classes… And guess what he did to my name.

    To this day, people who know my face from secondary school only call me the way that mister did. Thanks to him, I’m “famous”!

    If ever he crosses my way some day…
