It makes me sigh (and not in a good way) when people deliberately mess up BC’s name. A site I follow said “Bendywimple Quiverblog” today. Really? Is that what we’ve come to? Making fun of people’s names?
No wonder my kids have such a rough time- our last name is Dingus. Hard to get kids to stop picking on kids’ names when adults do the same thing, isn’t it?
Nice. Today’s was “Cumberdict Benebatch” (same site)
I responded with "Yeah. Making fun of someone’s name never gets old or stops being funny. Oh wait. Yes it does."
Well now I’m "upset on his behalf."
I responded "Not upset on his behalf, he’s a grown man and can take it. I’m upset on behalf of my kids, who, through no fault of their own, have been saddled with a last name that lends itself to teasing, and believe me- they’ve heard it all. If we can’t get adults to stop making fun of “silly” names, how are we supposed to get kids to do it?"
