    I definitely don’t know any of my husband’s exes’ middle names. I know one of their mom’s name because I’ve met her a few times, they’re still friendly and such and we went to the wedding, but I don’t even know that ex’s middle name. Good point, @Copa. I guarantee no one knows MY middle name.

    I suppose some people use their middle name on FB or something instead of their last name, like “Britnee Marieee”

    My father calling me all through the 1980s…

    “Ron! David! Gail? Duchess! Karen!”

    Long, long pause as I used to refuse to answer as it was a huge inside joke how often this happened…

    “MARK!!!”

    Now both my sister and I do this. Along with my “Ron! David! Gail! Duchess! Karen, Mark…. DAD!”

    This basically. My husbands referred to me by the dog’s name before. I thought it was funny. Stop looking for petty, bullshit ways to be offended, LW. The world is shitty enough right now; you can find a valid one.

    It’s not an issue, truly.

    My MIL sometimes calls my son by my SIL’s name, so she not only gets his name wrong but also his gender. When I talk about my husband, I’ll sometimes use my son’s name, but never vice versa. It’s weird.

    My closest coworker has a name that’s only one letter different from my husband’s, think Louie and Dewey, and I get the two mixed up constantly.
