So my favorite song right now is the Ting Tings 'That's Not My Name'. Mostly because it makes me dance but also because it was totally written for me.
My name is CH-ana. A little different but NOT difficult. Maybe because its been my name for 20+ years I don't think its weird at all or hard to pronounce.
So then riddle me this: Why can't people get it?
I have been working at my job for a year and a half. I work as a Marketing Rep and am fairly involved in company schtuff and know almost everyone's name which isn't hard because there are only about 50 of us. But there are still many people who call me the WRONG name.
I used to correct them and other coworkers used to correct them but after a year it seems a bit excessive to have to correct them each and every time.
Shanna, Chauna, Chaina, or Shaina...That's Not My Name!
