Aaaa people at work have started calling me by my full name because it's what my name is in exchange and I don't have permissions to change that and I don't know how to tell people to please not call me my full name because only my parents do that

@masklayer "just tom is fine, tom ___ is what my parents call me"

@yatchi Yeah but here's the thing: I don't like how my name sounds so I don't like saying it so I just don't... I don't make any sense


@masklayer i think i get that, i don't think i've ever been 100% comfortable with my name. but if you can bring yourself to do it, it's not a big deal for people to be asked to address someone differently, especially if it's to just stop using a last name
