It just bothers me honestly - puts me on these projects with unrealistic expectations and can’t even spell my name right (adds in a letter to it)

I think people who can’t spell names when it’s literally in the email address that you are sending it to are of a lesser intelligence. Basically it’s not you.

I think he/she would appreciate the correction actually

A client of mine once told me : please note the correct spelling of my name below, since that day, I never spelled anyone’s email wrong.

To my defense, We call him something different and he goes by something different 👩🏾‍💻.

No. He or she would rather you say something wrong f than realize it’s wrong much later.

Please correct him/her. I called my fav associate “Mike” for a whole year when his actual name was “Pete”. I had a Pete on another team that I did much more work on and couldn’t get my brain to reset.

Leaving my law firm on Friday.
Any ideas for what to get for the following people?
1. Partner I work with on pretty much everything (we’re quite close- he swears a lot and is a great mentor)
2. Two paralegals (not on the best terms but we are cordial)
3. Partner I work with sometimes (very nice guy)
4. Associate I barely know
Should I just get a gift for the partner 1 and lump in all the other people by getting the law firm a gift basket? Any recommendations for gift baskets?

I love working at the bookstore and I'm proud to work with such a large group of people from different backgrounds. I'm really happy we're all here.

It's like I spend most of the day following one of my coworkers around and discreetly fixing what he works on. He's a great guy, very personable, but wow is it frustrating.
