I am acquainted (professionally) with a guy who has almost certainly read How to Win Friends and Influence People, or at least read a summary of it, like I have.

Here is the rule he has taken very much to heart: "Remember that a person's name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language."

Each time I talk to him, it goes like this:

"Dani, hello. Dani, how are you? I got your email, Dani. Dani, I think I can help you with that."

It's kind of fun. Not sure if I'm influenced or just amused. Maybe influenced.

I love when a guy uses my name a lot. I slightly fall in love with him.... So I'll say I'm influenced.

Irritated? Does it make you irritated too?
