    A good example of this would be somebody calling you by the wrong name, and continuing to do so because you never bothered to correct them.
    This, holy crap. Basically throughout my educational years I've had countless people mispronounce my name. At first I tried to correct them and it worked for a while but then soon enough they'd forget and start mispronouncing it again. So I just didn't bother anymore, it wasn't that big of a deal after all. I'm not gonna like flip a table or something over it. It's funny because suddenly people I've met more recently (PC members and work collegues), they all pronounce my name correctly without any issues. It surprised me actually.
