Darn people call me Jessica ALL the time. Even on my birth certificate it's just jessi. That's all. People also spell my name wrong...
My nickname is Jessi and I hate it when people spell it wrong too. :(
My full name is Jessica but I go by Jessi (occasionally Jess). I hate it when people spell my name like "Jessie" because that extra E that isn't in my full name just seems useless to me. And it reminds me of a cowgirl due to Toy Story../:
