A woman has shared how she got mad at her in-laws because they refused to call her by her actual name.
Sharing her story on Reddit, the woman explained that ever since she first met her in-laws years ago, they have acted weird about her moniker.
“They started out by asking me a hundred times if my name was actually Florence,” she said, explaining that she was named Flora.
“Then they asked me why my parents chose to give me a nickname (Flora) as a legal name instead of the full name Florence and call me Flora instead,” she continued.
“But what really bothers them is the fact I use Florry and somewhat prefer it over Flora. They told me they could not understand a professional woman using such a juvenile-sounding name.”
Her in-laws also told her that whenever they hear the name Florda, they expect to see a 6-year-old.
Flora also explained that her husband calls his parents out for being disrespectful but her in-laws continue to call her Florence.
“My husband told me to ignore them if I wanted and so I did,” Flora went on.
But during a family gathering, the in-laws and their friends called her childish as she refused to answer to Florence.
Reddit users were shocked by the in-laws behavior, with one person suggesting: “Pick a nickname for each of them and tell them it sounds really cute and that is what ur going to call them from now on.”
Another said: “I would just not see them at all, ever again. If they can’t even do you the slightest level of respect as using your actual name, then they are worthless people.”
