Its not that bloody hard is it..

Hello all, how are you today?
Well i am yet again a little peeved.
Why you may ask?
I will tell you..my name as you all know is Sara..not Sarah,Sarhara,Sahara or any thing bloody else..so for some reason the bank has changed my name on all correspondance to Sarit..yep Sarit..how they got that i will never know.
I keep changing it back and informing them of the mistake they are making..i have been with this bank for years and years..and for the last 2 they have been calling me Sarit.
I am fed up..small in the grand scheme of things i know..but really annoying .
So from now on when they send me a letter i may just return and say not known at this address..suck on that lollipop.
I could understand if my name was a long one or hard to spell but its 4 flipping letters..and get this when i ring the bank i get told that my name doesn't match the name they have on their records..what!!!!.how can that be i had to take my bloody birth certificate to open it ..so somehow it has got changed.
They have one more chance then its Adios..
It may seem a small thing but its very annoying.
Sorry for moaning but i was given a name and no one has the right to change it..
sara,sarit

  1. Dear Sara, it is the small things in life that peeve us and you are right to be annoyed that your bank, with whom I suspect you have been with for years, should not have your name correct. It would annoy me, too.

    PS Our surname is often incorrectly spelt. On our daily paper, which my husband collects from the local shop it is incorrect and I've told them twice now how it is spelt. The funny thing is, I write for the local paper - they only have to check my name on my page in the paper! But they obviously don't think it matters, anything will do as long as it's similar, it seems. They have it ending "ey" when it ends "ing".

    1. Hi Margaret..i have been with my bank for about 22 years now..its baffling me how they changed it..it is the small things that peeve me..thankfully i can say they are small things.
      That would annoy me as well with my last name..which to all is obvious but you honestly would not believe some of the spellings of it we have had..make us laugh

    2. It almost sounds then like your account may have been hacked and the name changed by the 'other' person, since you have had the account for so many years but this 'name change' is recent. I would close the account ASAP and move on.

  2. Sara, my blog is at www.margaretpowling.com where my name is correctly spelt, har, har!
    We've been called Powelling, Cowling, Towelling, you name it, anything but Powling.

  3. My surname is Tristram. You couldn't imagine how it has been spelled over the years. I was a teacher and some of the notes coming from parents had the most amazing attempts at spelling my name. Living in France now the French are much better at getting it right without having it spelled out for them. I agree it is the little things like that which are most peeving especially as my maiden name was one which no one got wrong.

  4. Good for you! I have come to believe that banks are bloody useless. When they sent out bank statements, not that long ago, our bank kept sending us someone elses bank statements. We contacted the bank THREE TIMES, each time they were horrified and promised that it wouldn't happen again, but it did. The trouble is, they are all the same, sadly. Makes you despair!

    1. It is so frustrating at times..i have rang and filled in forms..they seem to think its something to do with how my signature is.
      O they are always horrified and apologize profusely but still happens

  5. I understand exactly how you feel. I've belonged to an on line group for years and we message each other several times a day, and yet a lot of them still get my name wrong. It's Lesley NOT Leslie. Sorry to shout but it drives me nuts. Even when I leave a comment on a blog, they still get it wrong. Please, please, please, SARA, don't drive me to the point of madness. Blessings SARA

    1. Lesley no i haven't done it to you hun..i believe that all of us have a name and for politeness sake it should be spelt correctly.

  6. Just change banks. When they ask for feedback tell them how stupid they are. Businesses these days only take notice when you stop using them!

  7. Drives you mad doesn't it or surname is LEVEY not Levy, Levi etc We have gone back to the 1600s in our genealogy and it was happening back then too judging by the crossings out and corrections. Also we are not jewish in the 1600 they were protestant decenters which was a crime against the church, jews could worship openly .Sorry about the rant. Just to make things worse we called out daughter Tracy not tracey, the number of times she has been told she is spelling her name wrong and she she has grown up children! again sorry. Give the bank a bit of your mind.

  8. It almost sounds like your account has been hacked. Is your balance correct and no mystery charges?
    I agree that I would change banks with service like this.
