    I have had a customer for around 1 and a half years now and he keeps calling me Russell instead of Ross. in the past i have subtly said my name is Ross but he keeps going back to calling me Russell. He is a police man so its not like he isn't campus mentus.
    So i have two choices, say something or leave it, i am going to leave my decision to you guys...

    ppl can call me what they like as long as I get paid :D

    Another alternative is wear a name badge so they know who they are talking too,... that is if their eyesite is not shot like their memory :rolleyes:

    old folk I find more of an issue but you have to make allowences and treat everyone with the same respect.

    Have 1 special 'your windows have been cleaned today' slip with your name in big letters under the logo, if he still gets it wrong after a couple of goes he's doing it on purpose (it's been known).

    One of my customers that I've known for 7 years calls me Simon. Everytime. Why? I don't know.

    True perhaps i should just get all my customers to call me that from now on, would be much easier.
