10 Things Not To Say To A Married Woman Who Didn't Change Her Name

1. What do I even call you?
This is seriously something I was asked last week. Call me by my first and last name, like you've been doing literally for years. If that's confusing to you, I feel like you shouldn't be allowed to operate a motor vehicle, handle sharp objects, or leave your house, period.
