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. -.-
