I got married about two years ago, and I decided to take my husband's last name (no flames!). One of the reasons I took it was because no one can pronounce my maiden name, so I was actually kind of relieved to have a nice, succinct, easy-to-pronounce-and-spell last name.
I have also been at my current place of work for about three years. I have a coworker, "Joe," who is constantly making comments about how my last name has changed. At first, I brushed it off as "well, he's used to calling me 'Jones,' but now it's 'Smith.'"
But he's still doing it! He will:
-Call me "Mrs. Smith," which I don't understand because my company is strictly "first-names only";
-Call me by my maiden name, and then say "oh, that's right, you're no longer (maiden name)";
-Make a big deal if I correct him. I'll just say "it's 'Smith,' but you know you can just call me 'Twinkletoes.'"
It seems like he's fixated on the fact that I'm married and I've changed my name. To be quite honest, it's creepy. Can I tell him as much? What should I do?
