Struggles only people with unique names will understand



TOP STRUGGLES ONLY PEOPLE WITH UNIQUE NAMES WILL UNDERSTAND:

1. People mispronouncing your name EVERY SINGLE time

Horrifying moment when relief teachers (in fact any new people I am meeting) when they want to pronounce/announce my name. Just like that time when I need to go up stage to get my Diploma certificate.

2. Either that, they spell your name wrongly ALL THE TIME


P/S Hate it especially when people WhatsApp/email me asking for something but yet failed to spell my name right.

3. Which is why I dread all self introduction whether at work/school


4. Half the time people will ask you why is your name so special


And some didn't even realised that my name is a Chinese name...

5. My name always appear to be a spelling mistake on Microsoft documents
6. And auto correct on phones aren't being nice to me either

7. Some ask if I am from other countries


Well I am but I am not alien. Actually they asked if I was from Japan so at least it's not too bad?

8. And finally, people will start asking you to get an English name to make their lives better


WELL I DO HAVE ONE.

Not to make your life better anyway. It's to make my life better to stop explaining and repeating myself at every self introduction session.

But then again, guess what, no one will have the same name as you and people will always remember you (because you made their lives miserable in pronouncing your name).
