Why Does My Computer Call Me Jim?

I know I’m called James, although not everybody who reads this blog knows that.

But why does this computer sometimes call me Jim. No-one does that.  In fact it was my father’s nickname, so I wouldn’t have used it would I?

Does anybody know how to change this American rediculousness?

Incidentally, if anybody calls me Jim on the phone, I immediately put it down, as it is probably a scam.

    • I don’t answer or reoply to Jim.

      Do they call you by your number?

  2. […] Generally, I don’t mind, except if they call me Jim.  Jim was my father, as I said before. […]
