Okay, so I am really at my wits end here. I have some lovely neighbors with a young daughter who has been calling me “Jill” for the last three years, my name is not Jill it is Jenn. I have corrected the little girl, sent the family a Christmas card with our photo and have corrected the Mom also. The Dad always gets my name right but not so much for the little girl and the Mom.
We are having my graduation party tomorrow and DH just saw the Mom in the drive way and she asked if “Jill” was sure that she didn’t want her to make a cake. My husband said it took everything in him to not start laughing and he doesn’t have it in him to correct her because she is so nice.
This has been an on-going joke in our house now for about a year or two, DH refers to Jill as his other wife (the one who cooks and cleans! LOL!).
I have tried to spell it out to them and they still don’t get my name right. Should I just shrug my shoulders and send out notices of my name change to friends and family?
BTW, many in the south confuse Jenn with Jan so that I could understand, I don’t understand where they go Jill.
Oh, yeah I earned my Associates degree and will be graduating on Saturday, hence the reason I haven’t been online much and why I am not getting to attend the Basenji Rescue convention. Only 10 more classes until my Bachelors degree is finished!
