It's Carmi with an i, thank you
About this photo: It's in the details. Thematic. Here.I'm not especially high-strung, and I don't play the diva card. Much. But if you've known me for heaven knows how long, yet you misspell my name, I'm going to be slightly ticked. In this case, let's call it half my life, give or take.
I sit on a board of directors with a guy who finds new ways to misspell my name every time out. I often miss receiving e-mail because he manually types my e-mail address - wrongly - and then doesn't re-send the message after the fact. Polite requests to have it corrected are met with a shrug and a laugh. I find silliness like this unacceptable.
Yes, I'm ornery. But it's disrespectful. I was raised and trained to take the extra moment to double-check that you got it right. In the Internet Age, it's not that difficult. Making sure is the least I can do to treat those around me as I'd like to be treated in return. That is all.
