What's in a name?

I get disturbed when people can't get my name right. I am especially disturbed when Asians can't get my name right. I feel like beating up people when MY FREAKING OWN TEAM MATE gets my name wrong! What's with these morons? How difficult it is to spell my name? ringgit.. 7 characters. There is no way in the world you can get my name wrong in an email correspondence. You see my name clearly in the "FROM:" field. How in the world can people get SO blind?

You see, I have the Business Partner whom I provide technical support via email. Read again: correspondence via email. That means whenever I write to him, my name, ringgit is spelt in each correspondence. If he looks at his Inbox, he sees this name. But yet.. he has consistently called me runggut.. runggut and ringgit.. it's an ocean of difference. Grr...

Then there is this kwai lo.. he called me ringgy.. I stare at my keyboard.. Y and T is as wide as the said ocean. How the heck can he get my name wrong? Are these people blind? If they are, they have no right to be in the IT industry!

And my team mate from Singapore whom I have met and had lunches a few times with.. he will email me and called me some bizarre name!!! WTF!??? In retaliation, I purposely spelt his name differently too. As expected, he hardly noticed. BLIND!

Edit: ringgit is obviously not my real name but I am using it as an example to show how moronic people can be.
