Does anyone have a name that people always shorter or change and does it drive you crazy? My name in Angela. That is what is say's on my office door, my drivers license, my birth certificate and every document/e-mail etc, that I have my name on. I can not stand being called Angie.... why do people assume that when I introduce myself as Angela that I want to be called Angie? Like if someone says James...do you automatically assume they want to be called Jim? Do you or your kids names have this issue?
