Bad Day in Progress

Spineless.  I am spineless.  I can't stand up for myself one single little bit.  When someone pronounces my name wrong I don't even correct them half the time because somehow it would be embarrassing to me.  It should be embarrassing for the other person.  Instead I'll just keep my mouth shut while they continue to say it incorrectly.  This is especially stupid when there's someone else there who also knows the first person is saying it wrong so then they wonder why I'm not correcting the first person.  Or even worse, I don't correct them and the third person steps in and corrects them for me!  How ridiculous is it that I can't even stand up for my own name?  I like my name!  I also can't bring myself to tell someone when they're out of line, even if it's to my own detriment.  Instead I just start to feel bad about myself even though I did nothing wrong except for not setting them straight.  Then I just go find a small dark hole to wallow in whilst I feel worthless.  Pretty soon, really trivial things start to bum me out like unicorns losing to narwhals and eventually I burst into tears because I dropped my spoon!

*Deep breath*

Okay, sorry about that.  Disregard.

  1. Don't sweat the small stuff. The earth won't come to an end if someone pronounces your name wrong.
    Now, if they call you Chris and think you are a guy, you might want to speak up.
