It is a poor state of affairs when a laydee gets upset by compliments.

I remember my dad received some junk mail and they'd mistyped the surname. They had put Walker, but put an n where the l should be..............

Try growing up with the surname Tucker..........

When I was Junior Surgical House Officer (a rank which entitles you to feed the hospital cat, but only under supervision) I got a junk mail letter: "To: Dr P Harkin, 12 Cherry Tree Avenue. Dear Dr Harkin, Would you like to take the whole Harkin family away on holiday while 12 Cherry Tree Avenue is redecorated?" We got one sent to the doctors mess too. "To: Drs Mess, Scarborough Hospital. Dear Drs Mess, would you like to take the whole Mess family away on holiday while Scarborough Hospital is redecorated?" Damn fine offer. Should have taken it up...

:shock: What sort of scam was that???

I hate having my name abbreviated. Some people do it automatically, and grrrr!

(note: my name is't actually Silmaril, in case you hadn't figured!)

My name is Susanne, pronounced Suzanne, but apparently spelled the "proper French way." My mother's hospital roommate when I was born was French and when she heard what I was getting named asked my mother to please not spell it with a Z. She liked the idea. It gets spelled with a Z frequently or pronounced Susan. If it's from someone I really like, I don't mind Susan or Sue too much, although it may take me awhile to realize you're talking to me. Susie however is grounds for a fist fight. SusieQ will get you on the Assassination List.

My maiden name is Gothrup and I've been told that it's English, I've also been told that it's German. I don't know. Although a cousin who's looking into our geneaology says it looks like our ancestors came over from England.

Oh, it was just one of these "Join our book club/take out our loan/look at our double glazing or somesuch and enter a free draw". Not a scam as such - except that they are all :wink:
