spelling bee

I don’t know if it has something to do with Washington, or if it’s just a coincidence, but it seems like people have a much harder time with our name here than they did in Utah. It’s always an adventure to check the mail. Since moving here and setting up all our new utilities, phone service, and whatnot, we’ve gotten mail for:

  • Richard Casteel (somehow Bryant’s phone got set up under his middle name)
  • Brian Casteel (that’s what Bryant’s phone now thinks his name is, after trying to fix it)
  • the Casteer family
  • the Cestfield family

I can see that Casteer sounds pretty darn similar to Casteel, but Cestfield? Where’d that one come from? It’s Casteel, folks. C-A-S-T-E-E-L. I know it’s no “Anderson,” but it’s not rocket science either.

    Try going from Anderson to Sneddon. Stop your whining. :)

    Yeah! I was thinking about that the other day. I feel like, here, I can never get away without having to spell my name for someone. You would think that having Silk as your last name it would be pretty easy, especially since there is a substantial Asian population here.
