Compliments of being medicated, I don't get my panties in a wad quite as easily as I once did. That is, until, last night when perusing your website.
You see, I happen to love my name. I am named after both of my grandmother's (Mary & Martha Anne) and the vintage, classy, feminine sound of it fits me perfectly. I also love the spelling, because it's less common (and I hate anything popular) and I don't really like dual first names.
Unfortunately, not everyone shares these sentiments. I have found myself defending my name on many occasions. Others feel the need to say, "Oh, that's my dead grandma's name," Or, "My senile great-aunt who once was convicted of murder is named that." I mean, really? Thanks, people. Because we all want to be told we share a name with an old-fart with a criminal past. Ok, fine, no one has told me that their aunt was a convicted murderer, but it's only a matter of time. Or people have literally straight up told me my name is ugly.
And you, Bed Bath & Beyond, you are doing little to assist in my efforts in proving that Marianne is a beautiful name by pulling this kind of stunt:
I'm pissed, BBB! Y'all are rude. What the hell did my name ever do to you? Peggy Sue or Mabel are clearly better picks for that country crap. UGH!
No offense to anyone named Peggy Sue or Mabel, I'm sure you're lovely, but they are country names, aren't they? Marianne is not country.
