Stickin' it to Bushworld

In today's mail I received a document from a bank in Bushworld (i.e. a red state). I am taking out a loan to help my mother buy a house in Bushworld. The "New Accounts Representative" who sent me the letter asking me for a signature addressed me as "Mrs. Medusa." I provided the signature, but added the following on a lime-green Post-it note:
Please be advised that the proper form of address is NOT "Mrs. Medusa" but "Dr. Medusa." I am not too picky about formal modes of addressing a contact, except when such addresses involve the offensive assumption that one is married or, if married, prefers to be addressed as her husband's property. Thanks! Med

Aw yeah.
