I received the text below today. I might blame auto-correct, but since I was a kid, I would tell people my name was Bob, and they would respond, “Hi Rob”.

I don’t understand why, when someone tells you their name, you decide to call them something else.

(Now, my father-in-law called me Rob, but that was because Rob was the name of my wife’s first boyfriend and my father-in-law made it clear that he wanted her to marry him).

Text box with name changed from Bob to Rob
