5 WAYS HAVING AN ALTERNATE SPELLING OF A VERY COMMON NAME AFFECTS ME

My parents named me Ashleigh and not Ashley because they knew I was Special™
  1. 1.
    Never having to own a dumb novelty license plate
    Or being gifted one...
  2. 2.
    That deep connection to someone you meet with the same spelling
    Sister??
  3. 3.
    Being able to humiliate innocent substitute teachers
    Showing them who's the boss of this classroom since 5 years old
  4. 4.
    Not being outspoken enough to correct anyone when they spell it wrong
    Technically, I'm the one who is spelling it wrong.
  5. 5.
    Having non-English speakers be unable to say your name
    Here in France I go by "Ash-LEG." ohhhh silent G, how I admire you!
