    I guess Noor didn’t spell her name, because the other lady could say “En-oh-oh-argh”.

    It gets on my nerves when people do that, even when it’s not their fault.

    I think people jump to a racist conclusion too quickly. Mostly people are just lazy. I have a last name that people have the hardest time pronouncing even though it is not at all complicated.

    I think we forget how much we operate on auto pilot. Life is hard. We resist unconsciously anything that takes us out of our flow of established pattern. It’s a human tendency, nothing more, nothing less.

    The other day we had a yard sale, and this white American guy came in dressed in a kilt and other regalia and introduced himself with a Spanish name. He told me his name four times before I finally got it. He finally said, like taco but with a “P”. Oh, Paco! I said.

    Is that a difficult name? Nope, but it just wouldn’t click.

    Now If I had insisted on calling him Bob, well yeah, that would make me a lazy douche.

    It seems to me that Noor’s reaction should be “You can call me Nancy all you want, but I will only answer to Noor.”

    My best friend in grade school was named Noor, and where her people got it from stumps me to this day, as they lived in a very rural area, the nearest library was in the next county, and none of us had a tv, so it wasn’t likely that they would have had any contact with the Middle East.

    wow, just like japan, where “cultural interaction” means “enough about you, let’s talk about me”…

    When my father immigrated to the United States the immigration officer “Americanized” his last name because his real name sounded “funny”.
