Dear People of the Earth,
When using someone's name in print please make a TEENY TINY effort to spell that person's name correctly.
Clues as to how to spell someone's name are pretty easy to locate. Here are some hints:
In email - the individuals email address will commonly give you a clue. See example:
I bet you $10 he spells his name J O E.
In other communications, people tend to leave a signature, that is also a clue as to how their name is spelled. My signature at work is:
Terri XXXXX XXXXXXXX
Blah Blah Blah
I commonly get "Thanks Tracy" or even "Thanks Patty"
Where Patty comes from I have no idea. (Actually, I know a Patti and she's from New Jersey, but that's a different story.
Use the clues given to you you find your way!
