Dear Completely Different Debtor,

My name is still not Vanessa.

WTF???

Yours in confusion,
Val

***

Dear Self,

Bring herbal tea to office. You need hot drink options without caffeine.

Love,
You

For some reason, while I get called by other nicknames that could be variations of my fulll name occasionally, the wrong thing I'm most likely to be called is Michelle. You get from Cheri to Michelle how, exactly? (I've even had people tell me, "Well, you just look like a Michelle.")

The human brain is a strange, strange place. :: shakes head ::

What's weirding me is that I don't recall ever being called Vanessa before, and now I've gotten in twice in a week. O.o

best guess on name confusion
I wonder whether some application's spellcheck suggests "Vanessa" whenever "Valerie" is typed?

I had someone confuse the "m" in my name for two "n"s again this weekend. At least an "m" looks like two "n"s . . . "nessa" does not resemble "lerie."

Re: best guess on name confusion
Always possible. I've certainly seen them do stranger things...

Just proving that people do not pay attention. You should hear how my name gets massacred on a daily, nay hourly, basis.

BTW Vanessa (sorry, I couldn't resist!), do you still have that score of Sunday in the Park w/ George for me? I just remembered about it last night.

((hugs))

Yeah, I haven't done anything about any of those. Bad Val. :: hangs head in shame ::

When I worked at a landscape company I had a landscaper who refused to believe my name was not Meg. My initials are Meb and I always initial things in cursive with the second two letters connected as lower case. He apparently was a tad dyslexic and called one day insisting he speak to me because "she is the only one with a brain and I have her signature right HERE, now put MEG on the phone!"

So, I apologized, put the phone down for a second and then answered as Meg. He proceeded to tell me how the other girl had insisted I didn't work there and was she new or what?
