Argh

Oh for the sake of all that you find worthy of forsaking, People do NOT wilfully misspell their names. 
Please do NOT try to corect thier names on their behalf when they SPECIFICALLY tell you otherwise.

Im not really angry, just a little disgusted at the repetition everywhere of the same. I have been vying for a mail since yesterady afternoon, and finally asked it to be sent to a personal id. And i discover the reason it never reached me was the spelling error. This after those guys had sent me a mail earlier, to the correct address. Someone tried to act smart now it seems, and screwed up my name spelling. Its not that difficult to use copy and paste is it?!
Apparently when you have preconcieved notions, it is.


Digg!

the other day at a blood donation camp...

Volunteer: Sir, your name is misspelt ?
Me: Huh ?
Volunteer: Sir, it should be Sarkar, a "k" here
Me: (Aside to myself: Should I blog this ?) No. Keep it that way, with a "c". Sarcar. With a "c"
