I know this is probably going to sound petty, but this has bugged me for years, and the older I get, the more it bugs me.
I have been on this Earth for more than 40 years, yet not a single one of my relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.) knows how to spell my name! I just opened another holiday card from one of my relatives and my DH's name is spelled correctly & our DS's name is spelled correctly, but mine is spelled wrong....again....and it's not like I have an unusual name, either. My parents say it's no big deal & I should just let it go, so I have, for years, but it hurts to think that they have so little consideration for me that they can't even spell my name right. Oh, and I should mention, my DH's family ALWAYS spells my name right & they've only known me for 22 years.
Would you be upset & hurt? And more to the point, would you say something at this point?

If it really bothers you-which it obviously does- you could say something but kinda make a joke out of it. That way they would know that you noticed but it won't be starting any kind of fight.
