As a Patricia who wants to be called Patricia, I often have to correct people who, upon first meeting me, ignore the name I’ve introduced myself as and call me Pat.
But today, I received an e-mail adressed to:
Unsupported global element: index = 1; parameter = first_name
At least Pat’s an actual name! (Just not mine.)
But maybe I should let go of my preference to called by a multi-syllabic name?
