Years ago I had nameplates made for some friends who held positions in a scout troop.  One was to have a friend's name and his position:  Administrador.  When I got the nameplate, it read "Administrator."  When I asked about it, I was proudly told that "Administrator" was the correct spelling.  I replied, "If I had wanted it in  English instead of Spanish, you would be right."  He was right, but in the wrong language.  Yes, he made another nameplate while I waited.

 

I had a boss called Blankenship.  A real "chato".  When I would send out the mail, I would spell his name with a "T" instead of a "P".  He would get so angry when he got mail in that name!  Ah, revenge....
