I got two pieces communication today which prompted this rather arbitary blog post. (As if any blog posts are of significant importance)
I am aware that I have a fairly uncommon name, one which has more than one spelling. As such I am not particularly precious about the spelling of my name (which is just as well as it get misspelled often) but what I don't get is when someone replies to an email I sent (where my name is in my email address, in my signature and in my greeting) and they STILL misspell my name. "Dear Tersia, thanks for your email...."
It is a minor annoyance and in the grander scheme of things completely unimportant but it is irksome. However, one good thing is that it has taught me to make a point of carefully noting the spelling of someone's name before I hit 'reply' on email.
For those who care, my name is spelt: Tertia. And it is pronounced: TER-sha. But you can just call me "GORG-jus".
PS re previous blog post, will post an update soon. Have not yet taken action mostly because I have been away on a business trip but also because my inaction is based partly on fear! Not something I am looking forward to addressing.
