Warning rant coming! My name is [name]Elizabeth[/name] and honestly I don’t really like any of the shortened forms. It has really started to annoy me that after introducing myself to new people as [name]Elizabeth[/name] that they will automatically call me [name]Liz[/name] (well mostly [name]Liz[/name] and occasionally other nicknames)?? I just don’t get it… surely if you introduce yourself as a particular name why do people automatically pick a different one? Am I really overreacting?!
Wow, that felt better! Anyone else experienced this or have an opinion?
