So I already have a fucking nickname and I haven’t even accepted the offer yet

I've been interviewing with ACN and they've treated me like a dog treats a slipper throughout the process. I finally get sent the offer, and my potential manager sends an email introducing me to the team. He and his analyst pronounce my name in two different ways — he asked me to decide who among the two was right.

The analyst was right, but being the neurotic machiavellian mess that I am, I thought that pointing that out would make me lose brownie points, so I explained that in my home country they pronounce it the way that the analyst did and abroad they pronounced it the way that he did — I deferred the choice to him, and I FUCKING QUOTED SHAKESPEARE'S "a rose by any other name is just as sweet"

His reply:

"This guy's name is ROSE" (rose was colored in red)

One of the team members' followup email to me was "Hi [name] or Rose,"

Just fucking murder me already, roast me and drive me further to suicide, I'm clearly too socially inept for consulting
