Are there any mispronunciations/typos that people do with your name? I get called "Kathy" CONSTANTLY. A lot of the people who do this give me a shitty attitude when i say my name's not Kathy, they go "whatever" or even "it's basically the same name" or they immediately call me Kathy AGAIN. dumb asses. I've also been called Casey, Carrie, Kiddie and Key. I don't even think the last one's a name, I thought it was something you opened a door with. Katie is not a weird name, WTF is wrong with people?
