Another awful and pointless story that's probably fake

    So I started taking Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes a few months ago and people were really nice. The instructor asked me what my name was, I told him it was David. But then the next lesson he starts calling me 'Daniel-Son (probably spelt wrong)' like in The Karate Kid.

    I didn't really know why he called me Daniel-Son, I thought maybe he thought I looked like/reminded him of the guy in The Karate Kid so I didn't tell him my name wasn't Daniel. But then the next lesson he would call me Daniel and at this point I couldn't correct him and tell him my name was David because I didn't correct him the first time he called me Daniel.

    So I just went along with it and when people started asking my name, I just said my name was Daniel so there would be no confusion and awkward conversation about it. So the other day I was at a nightclub with my flatmates and I bump into one of the guys from Jiu Jitsu. He says "hey Daniel" and then my flatmates correct him and say my name is David. Then he says, "no, his name is Daniel". And then *cue the Curb Your Enthusiasm music*, so now I'm not sure if I'm going back to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu anymore because it's too embarrassing. Shame, I really was enjoying it.

    Tbh I’ve let this happen before. Especially with older people who I’ve corrected a few times and they still don’t hear what I’m saying, so I just let them call me what they heard (which is usually kristy or Kristen) :headbang:

    So your name isn't Skrinkle? How dare you lie to me. What's next? Next you'll be telling me that you're fucking another guy

    Seriously though, I do that with old people all the time too

    Hmm, he genuinely thinks my name is Daniel but he was messing around when calling me Daniel-San. I wouldn't say he was being an ass lol

    He's been calling me Daniel for months, I can't just come out and say he's using the wrong name. There's a sheet you have to sign when coming into the dojo and it says Daniel on it

    I think you can pull off being a Daniel bud!
    The only option now is to legally change your name so you can go back and enjoy yourself

    I wasn't really lying, I just didn't want an awkward conversation correcting him of my name. If I corrected him, he'd be like "why didn't you correct me before?" and then I'd be like "uhhh" and it's just a mess

    Fun fact, Daniel Whelan is the real life author of The Box of Demons. In this book, there's a minor character who only responds to statements saying "why" and "how" etc.

    I would agree, that such an issue that's been allowed to go on, is going to be more embarrassing to rectify, but I would bite the bullet, and tell the man your real name, and get it cleared up. I think everyone involved would appreciate your honesty, albeit somewhat late in coming.
