Hello friends, I have some clients who calls me by surname. Honestly i dont like it at all. I mean if some one calls me by my surname he should atleast add a Mr, I repeat atleast a Mr, if not Sir . So I would like to know if your name is John Smith for example , would u mind people calling u Smith? Do u feel that its a kind of disrespect to your surname which u have got from your parents? Please share your views. Cheers, Tutul

I would really prefer if they would add mr or miss if someone would call you using your surname. If it's an elder or a boss I dont mind if they would call me by my surname. I have been called (by someone I like) once by my surname and it really irked me. so I totally know what you have felt. It was as if he's calling all my kin. and yes, my name is beautiful too. it would have been nice if he called me by my name

Hey missy, It seems a lot of people dont like calling by their surnames. And i dont understand this boss issue, IAm managing a company of my own and i have never called any one in my office by their surname without adding an appropriate word before like MR or Miss. I mean i cannot show disrespect to anyone in my office just becoz iam their employer. Never compromise with your dignity or self respect. Cheers, Tutul

Well I do face this problem a lot. People do call me by surname as my surname is easy to pronounce and these give them a pleasure of making fun. I am working in vodafone and believe me i have to tell my boss that to use my name as common and not surname.Anyways it becomes a common habit as people start following others.

Hi cifer iam sorry i disagree with u. Iam running my own company and i never call my staffs by their surname. Its like if u want to gain respect, u have to give respect to others as well. I can understand yr position as he is yr boss but u may try asking him once that u prefer to be called by you name instead of your surname. Goodluck! Cheers, Tutul
