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....
