On Thursday's Heart Breakfast Martin and Su found out that Twilight star Robert Pattinson hates the nickname 'R-Patz' that he has just been given. He says “I would like to break the hands and mouth of the person who came up with it.”
So this morning Martin and Su wanted to know what people shorten your name time without even asking if you're ok with it. Here's what you said:
Matthew - I hate being called Matt. It makes it sound like you can walk all over me.
Kim - I'm Kim NOT Kimmy.
Danielle - I hate it when people shorten my name to Danii.
Rebekha - I don't mind bex or becka (depends on who calls me it) but hate Becky.
From this moment on Martin (or Mart - he doesn't mind that) has vowed to ask before he ever shortens someones name again.
