Strangers Using NickNames

One of my pet peeves is a stranger using a nickname. Not a generic “darling” or “honey” because, frankly, they probably don’t remember your name, and I’ve been guilty of that myself.

No, what I hate is the shortening of my name without really knowing me.

As you well know, my name is Katrina.

And someone posted a comment and shortened the name to “Kat” as if we were bossom buddies and lifelong chums.

Heck, if he knew me at all, he would know that no one calls me Kat.

In fact, my friends and family go the other way and use the “Trina” part of Katrina.

What happened to the days of yore where people asked you if they could call you by your name…
