Please Get My Name Right!

In the midst of my busy-ness, I can’t help myself but to write about this here. At times, I wonder whether my name is so hard to spell or something. I have a common name, a name I believe many celebrities, stars, artists are having it.

But in Malaysia, I encountered many who cannot even spelt my name correctly. It’s MICHAEL but many spelt it the other way round MICHEAL. What’s wrong with you guys? Don’t you know Michael as in Michael Jackson, Michael Jordan, Michael Chong, etc?

For God sake, some people whom I had given my business card can mis-spelt it most of the time. And when the emailing does not goes through, I was blamed. If you fax or snail mail me spelling my name wrongly, it will still reach me as there is only one Michael in the company, but email, it's not controlled by me, wrong spelling meaning it will not reach me. Get me?

It’s not that hard to spell my name innit? Remember it’s MICHAEL not MICHEAL.

before a few months, I spell both 'micheal' and 'michael' as micheal

Freaky part is: till date, all of the michael I met in real life is spelt as michael.

For some reason, msians will almost always mis-spell that name.

Maybe its because typing EA is easier than typing AE

I can't blame you for your anger, Michael... people get my name wrong too. They spell it as "Kelvin" even on my business card and i had to wipe out the "L" one by one (assholes); as if that's not bad enough, the some people call me "Kelvin".
