The nickname I use can be spelled a couple different ways, but what annoys me about it is if I send an email and sign it Mag, they respond and say "Magg...." Anywho, I've started to just reply to people and say I spell my name this other way. Like seriously, read emails and respond with the correct spelling of someone's name. How hard is that?
I run into this occasionally, though I'm sure far less frequently. If you spell it wrong one time after just hearing it, fine. But if you've seen it in an email then your excuse just went away.
At my last job I was dealing with one person over email who thought for some reason my last name was my first. Those who know my real name will realize how idiotic this is, since I don't have one of those names like "Michaels" that sounds kind of like a first name. I corrected her once but it didn't do any good. Moron.
