If they miss you, they’ll call. If they want you, they’ll say it. If they care, they’ll show it. And if not, they aren’t worth your time.
both! and i was expecting it to just be the last, because, yaknow, French. but it turns out that a fuckload of people either a) cannot spell “delilah” or b) cannot pronounce “delilah” on seeing it written down which i’d understand but these are people from my culture in which the story of samson and delilah is kind of a constant background noise, not to mention the bloody tom jones song, the bloody killers song, and that mediocre songlady who has the same name as me…
- People outside my culture. SIGHS. I have to intro myself “Hana, like the Hawaiian island” or people WILL call me “Hannah” despite me emphasising “HA-NA”. Nobody tries with my last name and that is fine by me.
- I am still disappointed I couldn’t rhyme “Des Anges” with “The River Ganges”
All my names get spelled wrong and they’re not unusual for my culture or country or English or anything. Lucian gets made into “Lucien”, Mansell gets the second l left off, and I’m very lucky indeed if I get my last name spelled with a ph and not a v. I’m hoping to make it worse by adding Jay to my set of names next year; hopefully then people will just think that’s a letter or something.
THERE ARE THREE LETTERS IN THE NAME ‘ABI’. A-B-I. IT IS SHORT FOR ‘ABIGAIL’. DID YOU SEE HOW I JUST SPELLED THAT? ‘A-B-I-G-A-I-L’.
THERE IS ONLY ONE ‘B’. THERE IS NO ‘Y’ OR ‘E’ WHERE THE FUCK DO YOU GET THAT SHIT FROM. I AM NOT CALLED ABBIE OR ABBY OR WHATEVER THE FUCK ELSE YOU COME UP WITH WHAT THE FUCK WHERE ARE YOU GETTING THOSE LETTERS FROM. THEY ARE NOT THERE. THOSE LETTERS DO NO EXIST. YOU INVENTED THEM. THEY ARE MADE UP LETTERS. WHERE ARE YOU GETTING THOSE MOTHERFUCKING LETTERS FROM OH MY GOD.
…I have never actually understood why this makes me as spittingly angry as it does, but for some reason…
In school is was sort of a running joke how me and my friend introduced ourselves “Hi, I’m Sarah with an H” “Hi, I’m Jemma with a J” people would take the piss out of it “Hi, I’m Matt with an M”
I never had issues with this until I got married.
Now my last name is pronounced incorrectly 99% of the time
UGH THIS. MY NAME IS NOT AMANDA.
They always fuck up my last name
How do you get kicked out of a bakery?
I can relate to this
shout out to the parents who take their kids to cons and help them with cosplays and even if its not totally their cup of tea they still do it because they want to see their kids happy yall are great
