Today, after months of correcting him, I got so used to my boss calling me "Alex" that I didn't respond to my own name several times today. FML

I hate when bosses think they can call there employees what ever they want just because they pay you.

Great, if you screw something up at work, he'll always think 'Alex' did it :)

That sucks OP. Sorry. You could try not answering your boss I suppose?

Your profile picture matches with your comment.

You should start wearing a lanyard with your real name on it, then put aka Alex next to it so that everyone is one the same page.

"Alex is really slacking off at work. I need you to make sure he gets fired." "Sir, there is no Alex that works here." "Looks like you already took care of it before I even told you! Great job!"

You could always just change your name. Alex is a nice name.

Great idea. Going to change my name to accomodate someone else's incompetence. /sarcasm

Get a name tag?

can't you just ignore him? he sounds like a dick.

Yeah I have a slight feeling that ignoring the boss wouldn't go over well.....considering that 'dick' is the one who pays OP

I hate when people call me Alex. This happened to me at school all the time because my name is Alexandra but have always gone by Lexi.

My Dad had something like that happen too! His boss called him "Po." His name is Greg. Eventually he just gave up trying to correct him because his boss was fixated on the name Po like a tick on a cat.

I think your dad's boss (and his kids) watch too much Kung Fu Panda.

oh i thought of teletubbies

Damn, forgot about that Po.

By any chance, do you work at Target?

Op here and no unfortunately that would be amazing for the purpose of this story though lol
