I work with a woman who pronounces her name oddly. It's a tomato-tomahto kind of thing.
I always seem to end up referring to her as Tomato. Today I introduced her to a new hire, for example. Whenever this happens, she always finds a way to gracefully work her own pronunciation into the conversation
"Hi, I'm Tomaahhto" or some such thing.
It's not that she's at all rude about it; she isn't. However, her pronunciation is just plain wrong to me, and I have difficulty pronouncing it her way.
What makes it more difficult is that I never remember how she pronounces it. People pronounce my last name wrong all the time and I don't see why it matters quite so much to her.
I usually make what seems to me to be a reasonable effort to conceal my irritation when she corrects me, but I do feel a bit awkward.
How can I resolve this?
Sadly, even though this is clearly regarded as an extremely low-quality question, I'm unable to delete it.
