Dear co-worker that called me Anne Marie

Hi! I've been here for four months now. I bring you letters, documents, expense reports - you name it - for the BIG boss man to approve and sign on a regular basis. Usually you lose them and I have to remind you about them and I do the uncomfortable giggle thing....remember? Anyway, you requested to be cc'd on an email today when checking the BIG boss man's email, you saw the from line had my name and it CLEARLY said MARIE. The email address said my name too. I think the body of the email also said "thanks, Marie" Why you felt the need to add "Anne" in the salutation is BEYOND me. Or did you mean to send an email to Anne Marie who works in another office in buttcrack Ontario, not here in TO? I'm sure she'd love to hear from you. Maybe you're still bitter that I beat you in the best toe nail competition a few months ago? You can have my mug with the organization's logo on it if you really want it. I'm more than willing to share. Either way, I hope we can get past this. I've noted that I should send you emails and hopefully you now know my name. Hopefully you won't look so stunned when I come into your office every week from now on. Thanks, MARIE :)

De-lurking... It's confirmed: most people don't pay attention!

Would you believe people mess up my name, and it's only 3 letters?!

*laughs* RIDICULOUS!!!

I have a co-worker who consistently writes Candance. Yes, I try - thank you very much. Adding another whole word is a bit bizarre, though.

People persist in calling me Christine when my name is Christina. I realize it's just one letter and I shouldn't make a big deal about it, but they are gypping me out of a syllable. And it's not my freakin' name!

Hereth endeth the ranteth.

P.S.--Love your blog.

I've been reading your blog for about a year now.

I read your witty banter, leave you comments and giggle at your jokes... remember?

Anyway, you continue to crack me up.

Anne Becky... er... I mean, BECKY.

Maybe in the bizaro world of mistaken identity, she thought you were really Marlo Thomas. She has obviously spent way too many lonely nights watching That Girl reruns.
