5. He also pisses me off since I am descended from Hewitts

Fortunately my branch changed the spelling of the name two hundred years ago so anyone who spells it the way he does is not a close relative.

That is also why I tend to leave off the final "T" - the spelling varied a lot in the early days: Hewit, Hewet, Huet, Huit, etc. None of the historic spellings are what my family ended up using.
