If you’ve known me before my change or even if something about me formed the wrong first impression. You’re going to get it wrong. You’ll refer to me as ‘he’ or use one of my boy’s names.
I won’t lie, I’ll flinch when it happens. especially if I think you know better.
But it will happen, the best thing you can do is fix it and carry on. profuse apologies sidetrack the conversation and rub salt in the wound. Just get it right the next time and don’t sweat the small stuff.
