My name is Forrest. Forrest Gump

Don't you hate it when people keep getting your name wrong?

Especially since my name is quite simple and not something powderfull like shueh yvung or something along that lines.My parents' logic is to name me such a simple name so everyone would know how to spell and pronounce my name

No one seem to be able to spell my name. I mean, how hard is MILI? Why am I getting Millie, Milly, Milli and Millicent? It's like a perpetual circle of craziness. I get called all sorts; Mai, My lay,Mee, Minnie,Mini..

And then now my married name. I keep getting Baker, like as if I bake cakes or make bread. Even my father is spelling it Baker.

So you are Mili Baker. As in not quite Centi-Baker, nor full Baker. Ho ho ho.

Ok lame. Heh. I know I called you "Milicent" before, thinking Mili was your nick name instead of full name.

But calling you My Lay is just WRONG. :P
