Why is it so difficult for people to either pronounce or spell my name correctly ?
Chin Khim Foh
My surname, Chin, is relatively easy to pronounce and spell. But most of the time people mis-pronounce my middle name, Khim, which the correct pronunciation is ‘kheem’ as ‘keem’…I hate it when they do that…it irks me to death…it makes me cringe..it makes me fuming mad.
Not only that at times they (I shall not mention their names) conveniently misspell my middle name Khim as Kim!!!! and this is after I wrote my name correctly in a form.
So my question to you all is, have you ever encounter such incidents where people, be it your friends or colleagues either mispronounced or mis-spelled your name countless times ?
