Calling someone by the wrong name is one of the worst things that you can do. It makes you look like a dick and feel like an asshole. You’re telling the other person that they aren’t important enough to remember, or that they remind you of someone else who you would prefer to be talking to. I’ve been on both ends of the situation. I don’t mind being the victim. I just correct them, laugh it off, and forget about it. It’s much worse to be the guy who does it. It can lead to trouble. Ever call a girl the wrong name? It leads to crying, arguments, and never any sex. Ever confuse a set of twins and say the wrong twin’s name? It doesn’t matter if it was an accident if you’ve known them for years. You said the wrong name. You are a terrible person. Don’t say the wrong name. Definitely don’t say it more than once.
