Have a card. Have two or three cards. In fact, have as many cards as you like. I have 500.
Business cards that is.
Each and every last one with my name and email spelled incorrectly.
I've worked for this construction agency nearly three years so when I learned I would finally receive business cards, I was giddy. I was on the phone with corporate a week later verifying my name and company information. All was correct.
The cards came while I was away at camp and I was excited to receive them on Monday. A coworker and I were discussing feedback on a recent situation when I realized all 500 cards were worthless. I bit my lip and stopped my comment mid sentence.
I've had more trouble with my last name. My passport came back twice with my last name misspelled, clients will call 2 and sometimes 3 times to say their emails to me - which includes my last name - bounce back, and now 500 business cards.
If only I could find a guy with the same wrong last name. I could marry into my business card.
What's in a name? Obviously not the right letters.
