My last name is Weicker (pronounced like biker.) Most people can get it right, but I ocassionally hear a "whicker" or "weaker."

I just answered the phone, and it was a southern sounding black dude. "Hi, this is Jermaine, I'm with [I have no idea what company.] Am I speaking with Miss Whicker? Whisker? Whiskers? Am I saying that right?"

Hahaha, awesome. I just started laughing and dude apologized and hung up with the quickness. I almost want to change my last name to Whiskers now. More people should say my name incorrectly, I get a kick out of it.

i had a lady call like a week ago and ask for "ryan curtin" (really looking for me) and i kept saying theres no such person here, and she verified my number and said that ryan curtin lives there and is registered with them. i said she can call my 12 year old cousin, ryan, if she wants and she got pissed

Yeah, I don't know how anyone could screw yours up, Dan. Some people are awfully dumb.

I worked in a telemarketing place for a few months during high school. Some of the bitchier people in the office would save the numbers of anyone who was rude.. then they'd give them to all the other bitches and they'd take turns harassing the fuck out of people.

And I really never understood the whole "keep going until they hang up, and don't take no for an answer" mentality. I was always nice as shit to people, and I had the highest conversion ratios in the place 75% of the time I was there. Bitchiness obviously wasn't very effective, so I don't know why management encouraged it.

My Spanish teacher in sophomore year pronounced my last name as Forbes. It's Ford. How hard is that to fuck up?

Yeah, the "cz" comes out the way I'd pronounce a Spanish "z." I rule at names. Haha. What the heck is Kuczma though? Polish?

You got screwed on that one.
Somewhere between Germany and the States, Weicher turned into Weicker. If they'd stuck with the original spelling, I'd end up with even more screwy pronunciations.

at least your name doesn't translate roughly to "an insignificant speck" in german
