Nametags work

Today, I was in a work meeting because our clientele is unhappy with our service. I was in there because I don't correct our customers when they get my name wrong. My name is Blane, but "Blair", "Blake", "Lane", and "Glenn" got rave reviews. No one picked up on this. I hate my job. FML

I'm sorry to hear that, Gary. Anyways, Blair, Blake, Lane and Glenn have been doing such a good job, they have all been promoted and you are now their assistant. Now, you have to get breakfast, lunch and coffee for these guys, pick up their dry cleaning and buy birthday presents for their little snot-nosed kids. Just be happy they kept you on when those other four guys were so much better than you. Get back to work, Brian.

You mean that you actually have co-workers with those names or you just let non-existent people take credit for your work? And why did you let other "people" take credit for your work anyway? I can understand not correcting a customer, but when it comes to the office, get a backbone and speak up, man. YDI.

Ouch. :( Are you not allowed to correct them? If you're not, than FYL. If you are, then you should be correcting them. Even if you're in a service job, you pretty much have a right to be called by your given name. Try explaining to your superior that people get your name wrong; it's worth a shot.

why don't you just point that out in the meeting? YDI if you didnt

Harry should have just slept with the boss.

But with Harry's luck, Larry would have gotten the raise (or rise) and Barry would have gotten the nice, covered parking space. And Blaine would still be sucking hind tit.

That is true, but hopefully by that time, Jake would have learned to speak up for himself.

This is the most hilarious bunch of comments ever. but with all hilariousness aside, this Brandon guy really needs to speak up and clearly tell the customers that his name is Jeff.

Speak up and take your credit back. "That's fucking me, fucking bitches. Give me my fucking credit or I'll fucking beat the fucking shit out of all of you fucking assholes." Surefire way to get a promotion.

or to get fired...

Change your name or get a nickname that's less generic or forgettable. You only have your parents to blame, not your coworkers.

Blane? That's a major appliance! That's not a name!

bahahahaahahahahahaah. YES.

theletterj? That's a letter! That's not a username!

This is more of a YDI... you need to speak up for yourself if you don't want things like this to happen.

Speak up for yourself, Nancy.
