Call me names

H A D A S S A H – that is how my name is spelled. I spelled it out for the guy at the phone store when I was getting my blackberry last week. I even wrote it down as he needed to set up my emails for me on the phone. I had to call customer service on Friday, spelled out my name twice, and they followed up with an email. “Dear HEATHER”…. Sigh.

It’s not that I don’t like the name Heather. It’s quite a pretty name. But it isn’t mine. I briefly considered calling them to make sure they change it in their system, but you know what, it’s just too much trouble to actually get through to a person. I guess for now I will enjoy having another alter ego…maybe I could use Heather as my nom de plume….hmm….it’s better than the English name that I was given….(sorry Mum…but I’m really happy that my Hebrew name rocks.. 😀 )

  1. so, now you got me curious. what’s the english name? harriet, henrietta???

  2. Yes and my favorite answer when people ask me to spell my last name: “THATs your last name??” No dufus that’s someone else’s last name, i thought i would just try to annoy you for the heck of it.

  3. My fave is when people realise that my name is Zena- like the Warrior Princess?! Do you kick butt? do you throw daggers from your cleavage? Can you crack skulls with your thighs? (Just a few of the lines I’ve heard over the years…)

  4. yeah but Z! – can you?? snortle….

  5. That is for me to know… And maybe my hubby….
