Hope your day is going well. Can I tell you something? It won’t take long. Just lend me five minutes of your time, if that. Thanks!
I just wanted to let you know that my name is Ashleigh. Not Ashley. Not Ashligh. Not Asheligh. Ashleigh. The first three letters are the easiest but the last five is what throws people off. Instead of the traditional “-ley” which is pronounced like “lee”, my parents opted for “-leigh.” You say it the same way. It’s not that hard to spell after you think about it.
And that’s it. I’m telling you this because I noticed you get confused sometimes and want to help. I mean, I get it. My name is spelled differently. This has created many misspellings all my life. Starbucks baristas don’t bother me because I’m used to it from strangers. But you aren’t a stranger at all–you’re my coworker, fellow church member, acquaintance. We interact too often for this to keep occurring. I don’t even know an Asheligh. Chances are, you don’t either.
So you get it now? Great! Just make an attempt actually spell it the right way. I try to do the same for you, so I would appreciate that same level of respect. Thanks so much again.
