This lady is more than just rude, she has real mental issues that need to be resolved. How she manages to get any real work done while obsessing on non issues like this, is beyond me. If I were Rep.McDermott I would, perhaps temporarily, remove her from her position or at the very least suggest that she take an obviously much needed break from the job. She’s really too thin skinned to be associated with politics in any way.
I myself have gone through life with an almost unpronounceable Gaelic first name. When I married, on top of my first name, I took on an often mispronounced French last name. Seldom, if ever, are these names said correctly the first time I am addressed by strangers. Do I care? No. I laugh and tell people not to worry about it. As long as I can figure out that they are addressing me and respond appropriately, its all good.
McDermott is a wackjob, too.
