Nicknames are a rite of passage, it doesn't matter if your name is long and complicated or short and common, it's likely you've been given at least one by classmates or coworkers. Barring cruel or disrespectful nicknames, most parents are fine knowing their kid's name will get shortened or toyed with at some point, it's just a fact of life.
However, for every rule there is an exception, and some parents just can't handle the heat of their child's beloved name getting shortened at all.
One mother got so upset about her son Andrew getting called "Andy" that she wrote into her local radio station to vent about the situation.
A screenshot of the question was then shared to the Insane Parents subreddit, where people were quick to tear apart this woman's logic.
