My name is not that difficult.

So, I am on dialysis in Tullamore today. I brought in some medication we have to buy so I can be given it every week. I gave it to my nurse who then proceeded to write my name on both ends of the box.

Michael John Campbell McFarland

Simple really. Except that my surname was the wrong way round. What made this worse was that she appeared to be copying it from my notes.

When I pointed out that it was not my name, I was informed that it was. I pointed out what was wrong, that it does matter that my name is correct, and it got changed.

Surely, it is not too much to ask that people can copy from one sheet of paper to another. Especially within eyeshot.
