One's an animal and one's a supermodel married to Tom Brady.

I need to simply get this off my chance:

Over the past few years, ever since I started the Morning Show here on Fun 107, I've been called a lot of things (some things I can't mention in front of a family audience). I can understand if people are unfamiliar with the name, but you hear it said every morning, dropped on the daily.

Here's what I often hear:

1.) *Studio Phone Rings* 

Me: "Hello, Fun 107...."

Caller: "Hi! Is GIZELLE there?!"

 

2.) *Goes to order an iced coffee at Dunkin Donuts*

Worker: "Welcome to Dunkin', how can I help you?"

Me: "Yeah, can I get a large, hot, black, coff...."

*Get's Interrupted*

Worker: "Are you JAH-ZEL?!"

 

3.)  *Working out at the gym*

Member: "Excuse me, you work for Fun 107, right?!"

Me: "Yes, I do."

Member: Are you that Gisselle guy??"

Me: .....

"Yeah, something like that."

 

4.) *Entering the drive-thru at the bank*

Cashier: *Oddly recognizes from 20 feet away*

"Hi, Gasel!"

Me: *Face Palm*

"Good afternoon."

 

I just don't understand how difficult it is to remember the name, but I can also see how unorthodox it is. Now, I know that I'm not the only one with this problem, I'm sure that there are a lot of people out there with a name that is constantly getting screwed up or mispronounced. I guess it's better than nothing.
