    People seem to have a lot of trouble with mine! They always think it's Amy or Emily or Omri so I'm always correcting them! It's actually a bit funny by now.
    Amri isn't that confusing, is it?


    Want to share your name mix up/spelling problems?

    I've always been identified as: The Colonel's kid,, JoAnn and Lee's girls, Mike's sister, or Steven's mom,, Ricky's Aunt, etc. Sometimes I feel like tattooing my name on my forehead! The only time I hear my name is when a student sees me and hollars Ms. Livingston!!

    My last name is not an issue around here. Weldon's are notorious around here. My first name people have problems, Marlon.


    I can't remember names for nothing.

    You know, sometimes just after I give an injection, folks will say, "O Gawd"... I say, "Nope, you can just call me Dr. M, but people get me confused with Him all the time"

    I tell people "like the fish" all the time.

    Not quite right but a lot closer than what people come up with.

    I get Hey Erin's Mom or Hey Alex's Mom a lot...

    Was Hey Coach back when I coached Alex's YMCA team...

    Then of course there's "Hey... uhh... mmm... errr... what were we talking about?" [​IMG]

    First time a teacher told the kids to "Listen to Mrs M (the room mom) and she'll tell you what to do"
    I swear I turned around and looked for my mother in law.

    I have been called Barbara before.

    My name is Debra, but I like Deb better.

    Here is something terrible. My mother called me, Mooter when I was growing up. The first part is like what a cow says. That awful nickname stuck with me until I got married. My mom would introduce me to strangers as Mooter, not Deb. I didn't know my real name until I started Kindergarden! When my mom died, there were relatives at her funeral who I hadn't seen since I was a child. Several of them asked me if my real name was Mooter. Um....no. My sister still insist on calling me Mooter. I hate, hate, hate that name.

    So all of you could be called something worse.

    Luckily, I don't see my mom's side of the family often. I avoid them as much as possible.
