That's MRS. Witch to you

Maybe I'm old-fashioned, but I've noticed that no one ever addresses me as "Mrs. Witch". It's always "MS. Witch", or just "Manic". I'm MARRIED dammit! I could understand when I was divorced that I would be addressed as "Ms. Formerly-Married-to-Shit-Head". I certainly wasn't a Miss anymore. Not since I was 21 years old and "Miss Embodiment-of-All-that-is-Pure-and-Wholesome". Even kids call me "Manic". I understand kids of close friends, like Queen's lil Q. But she calls me "Auntie Manic" which is perfectly acceptable. I encourage that. But at the grocery store? "Manic". Other doctors offices? "Manic". At least the kiddie patients at work call me "Nurse Manic". Even telemarketers-who should be kissing my ass-call me "Manic". I still call my parents' friends "Mr. and Mrs. Best-Friends-of-my-Parents". The only people who DO call me "Mrs. Witch" are my kids teachers. Go figure.

Any suggestions on how to deal with this without coming off as uptight?
