It's really amusing though when they try to be really professional (For example) like at a tournament they tried to call me up but it took about 3 minutes of 5 adult Black Belts whispering just to figure out my name without asking.
Well...my name is Cari, like the word car (the one that you drive) and then the long "i" sound. So it's pronounced "Car-ee" and I swear EVERYONE says it like Carrie or Cary and I hate it because it's so simple to pronounce. I guess it's because most people who pronounce the name Cari expect it to be spelled with a K and not a C so they think it's pronounced like Carrie. I just hate it because ever since I started going to school people have been messing up the pronunciation......... Don't even get me started on my last name :/
NOOOOOOO! It's one thing that you spell my name wrong, but it another to say my name wrong BUT spell it right! But it's okay if you have genuine trouble pronouncing it. But generally I'm fine with it nowadays....or at least I pretend to be X3
I don't usually have a problem with it. My name would be something like Ronnie and people would call me something far off like Kathy or Joe and I would still respond not bothered by it. But I realized this last week when a lady kept putting a D in front of my name. I kept telling her my name and trying to get her to say my name right. I wondered why I suddenly cared what she called me when I usually don't. And then I realized I tend to only have an issue when people who put a D in front of my name. Apparently I hate it when people pronounce (or at least try to pronounce) my name with a D for some reason. For example if people call me Daniel or Danial I noticed I am quick to correct them and insist they pronounce my name right.
Its not like I hate the letter D or anything. I was apparently acting that way unconsciously. Now that I have realized I have been doing that, I will put effort into not letting it bother me.
I find it weird however that people have trouble with my name. I always introduce myself this way: "My name is Ron-nee that is R as in rover." Why do people still say: "Donnie or Bonnie?" I said R as in ROVER, not B as in ball or D as in dog. I can't help but wonder what is wrong with people. When you reach a point that even when someone breaks their name down for you and you still can't get it, you should be concerned. In fact I had one guy tell me my name was to long to remember, so he wanted me to tell him a nickname. I told him call be something like "J" and he said: "nah I don't like that, I'm going to call you toothpaste."
I'm starting to think people are just lazy and rude. -.-
To be honest I'm used to it by now. Many people have mispronounced my name since it's really uncommon so I'm fine with just correcting them and moving on. I'd be surprised if they got it right, in fact. //shrug//
I already answered this but I actually have another case about it My name is Dana (which is said as Donna if American) and people keep calling me the pronunciation of Dayna
one of my new teachers actually argued with me that how I am saying it is WRONG XD and then I got really angry so she said how I spell it is wrong like, the heck mate? you want to go bruh? XD well thats the story of my life
