The Name Game
By templedf on Jun 20, 2006
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. ... -----Original Message----- Chris, Unfortunately, right now there isn't a good solution to your problem.... Daniel
I actually find it rather refreshing that in a comment to my Dogblading post, someone called me Dale. Who am I, anyway?
