You might have the most beautiful, meaningful name in the whole world (or at least you might feel that way), but you know someone is going to ruin it. How, you ask? By misspelling or mispronouncing it every single time. It doesn’t even matter whether your name is long or short or simple to pronounce or slightly complicated.

And you know what the best part is? More than half the people who mutilate your name won’t even realize they are doing it. They will, in fact, do it over and over again, and come up with a new version of your name every time. While you might just ‘Pffft’ those idiots away, someone got a little too pissed about it. So pissed, that they started a Twitter thread on the same.
Seriously. There’s a Twitter thread dedicated to correcting all the people who just can’t names right. Have a look.
1. You can’t just split names, people!
2. And you definitely can’t call someone December. Unless, of course, that’s really their name
3. Seriously, guys. It’s not funny.
4. I’ve been on this planet for 25 years and NEVER have I come across someone named grease. So, don’t call her that. Please.
5. Please, stop.
It really just takes a few seconds to get someone’s name right. The next time you don’t get someone’s name right the first time try this – “I am sorry, I didn’t catch your name.”
Trust me, they’ll repeat their name for you. Let us not piss people off enough to make them start Twitter threads like this one. We’ve already choked the internet with excessive non-sense forwards, at least spare Twitter the horror.
