The problem is Kenneth's mother. We call and speak to each other to arrange these dates. Every time we talk she calls me Kim. We've talked about 3 times a month for over 9 years and she thinks my name is Kim. She's a lovely woman. Always smiling, sweet, happy and she thinks my name is Kim. It's partly my fault. I should have told her my name is Karen right from the start. But now it's been too long. I can't tell her now. I'll humiliate her, won't I?
But then I think about her talking to another parent about me:
Raquel (Kenneth's mum): So I was talking to Elliott's mother Kim the other day and...
Other mother: Elliott's mum? You mean Karen?
Raquel: No, I mean Kim. I've known her for 9 years.
OM: I'm positive her name is Karen.
Raquel: It can't be. I've been calling her Kim for years... surely she would have said something.
OM: I don't know what to tell you. She must be messing with your head. Her name is definitely Karen.
Raquel: That bitch.
See? So now I'm a bitch for trying to spare her feelings. I don't know what to do here. Little help?
