The Name Game

All my life, I have been afflicted by a strange curse. My name is Daniel, but people constantly call me David. I can understand when someone is reading my name from a handwritten note, but my curse goes well beyond handwritten notes. For example, orally. I have more than once introduced myself to someone, "hi, my name is Daniel," only to hear, "nice to meet you, David."

My curse has now reached a new low. It has now found its way into email:

Thanks, David. ...

Chris,

Unfortunately, right now there isn't a good solution to your problem....

Daniel

Gah!

I actually find it rather refreshing that in a comment to my Dogblading post, someone called me Dale. Who am I, anyway?

Comments:

I often get called Lisa instead of Linda. At least they're getting the 1st two letters right for us...odd indeed.

I always get Steve instead of Scott. Of course, the answer to "Who is Daniel?" is "Cari's Husband", of course....
