Come on people....let's get it right!

Having the last name that we do
we constantly get misspellings and mispronuciations.
ie Kichman, Kirchman, Kirman.
At the doctor's office I got "Hurkman."
And my personal favorite:
and now this...Hickman.
Come on people!
And this last one is totally ridiculous
b/c it was a PRESCRIPTION
paid for thru our insurance!
If they don't have the right name
how are they gonna get paid?!
James is honest...and made sure they changed it.
I seriously don't mind it...I automatically spell
the name now to save the trouble.
Maybe my next husband will be a "Smith" or "Brown"
just kidding James...

That is hilarious! When people mispronounce your name you just want to shake them. Especially when it's so far from what it actually is.

I don't think your last name is all that hard. People are so lazy, and don't even want to try to figure things out.

Ugg! I hated having a hard last name, I can't believe how badly the messed up on that one, at least they got her first name right!

That’s funny “Hickman”. Maybe they heard about you guys getting chickens! (j/k) :-)

Oh yeah...update on the "chickens"....James is upset, but YES! It's against city code to have them....AND...the next door neighbor said when our previous owners DID have them, they caused big problems w/ rats and PHEW. The IDEA of getting chickens is one thing...making Sarah care for them is another!

I hate mispronunciations too!!! At my college graduation, they said "Kelly Marks Lard"!!! Lard??? It's Laird, but for some reason, everyone ignores that "i". So, I gave Mizzou well over 20,000 dollars for a diploma just to be called Lard in front of thousands of people!!! I feel you!!!

oh, the 80 year old woman said so, so it must be true...actually sarah, it's not against city code to have chickens (although we're not allowed to have roosters). The coop has to be 150 feet from our neighbor's house, so that might be what the problem is. I don't know how far away her house is from the chicken coop. We definitely need a fence in our yard that you can't see through.
