I don’t like change.
I got a new computer at work yesterday and I don’t like. It has the newest operating system and it’s different from what I had before.
My old email program isn’t compatible with this new OS so I have to get used to another one.
The IT man misspelled my name on the server.
And to top it all off, I was introduced to someone last evening and the new acquaintance shortened my name to one syllable.
My name is Patricia and I go by “Patti”. With an “i”. And I’ve always spelled with an “i”.
When I was in first grade, I remember the student teacher helping me print my name. She said it was misspelled and sent a note home with me to my mother. My mother wrote back and told the student teacher that my name was spelled correctly. With an “i”.
Don’t change my name.
Hi, I’m with you. I don’t like change either, at least not now that I’m getting old, but particularly with computers. I was a Patti too, in the 40’s through the 60’s. Then I went to Patricia. Then Patsy. Patsy stuck and people often said I looked like a Patsy, though I’m not sure what they meant by that. But there are thousands of us, and I thought the Olde English way of spelling my name, Patsye, might stand out. It did, and it does. Patti is a beautiful spelling of a very Royal name. Sorry about your computer.
Don’t change the spelling of your name to suit someone else. Good luck on your new computer.
I don’t like Judy……I like Jude or Judith. What is so hard about the spelling of “Jude”?
I get Jud all the time…..wasn’t that Archie’s friend in the comics? Yes it was. Didn’t those people EVER hear the Beatles song? Come on now……
I’m with you. I have to use a mac most of the time at school, and while I can do it, I just always feel like an imposter on a mac. I like my pc.
People have always called me Christine. Makes me nuts. I feel you on the Pat!
