Whether or not this story is true, it is amusing because anyone who has tried to call role with a random list of names can feel this teachers pain. I felt like we needed some humor  on the site. A friend told me this story. You can click here to see that Snopes has been unable to determine if it is true or not.

A school teacher pronounced the following name on her role sheet: Le-a. How would you attempt to pronounce it? Laya, Leea, etc. The mother quickly corrected the teacher saying, “It’s Ladasha. You be saying the dash. The dash isn’t silent.
