Calling someone named brian "brain" in office email

At least a few times a month someone accidentally types "Brain" when speaking about Brian. "Brain completed all of the TPS reports" etc. I find it odd that it would not jump out at the person typing the email that they have made this mistake, since "brain" is a rather powerful word. Would you consider this a normal excusable mistake?

Is It Normal?

  • Normal I would say as I have made the same mistake. It got a few laughs. :)

  • If Brian is a clever guy, nothing wrong with calling him "Brain". I've done this too with a friend of mine. Mostly to mess with him, but when he's had a genuinely good idea, I've said "Good work Brain".

  • I can't see that it matters. It's reminded me of my most common typo way back when I was a law clerk, which was typing pubic company for public company. Fortunately it only ever slipped through once
