stubbornness meets stubbornnesss

For the whole 3 years I was at Stanford, everything I got from the school had my name misspelled. I corrected it on various official forms, but it still kept coming misspelled.

I began to get obsessed with it.

Finally I had a confrontation over it at the registrar's office, where they informed me that they never made mistakes like that and therefore the only logical explanation was that I had misspelled my name myself on my application form.

So evidently they would prefer to think that they admit people so stupid that they can't even spell their own names than face up to the reality that sometimes they make mistakes.
