I heard dozens of my former co-workers were fired after forwarding the following email:

Subject: How would you pronounce this student’s name: “Le-a”?

Leah? NO
Lee – A?  NOPE
Lay – a?  NO WAY
Lei?  Guess Again.

It’s pronounced “Ledasha.”  Oh, yes, you read it right.  This child attends a school in Livingston Parish, LA. Her mother is irate because everyone is getting her name wrong.  If you see something come across your desk like this, please remember to pronounce it correctly.

When the mother was asked about the pronunciation of the name, she said, “The dash don’t be silent.”

The HR dillweeds at this major corporation said they considered the message to be racist. WTF? The email doesn’t even mention race.

If they’re assuming ‘Ledasha’ is from a specific ethnic background, then maybe they’re the racists.

I’m half-tempted to send an email to my former HR rep. I think her name was Tijana.

Some silicone sister with a manager mister told me I go what it takes

  1. Name the kid Ledasha but too lazy to spell it out. Her mom’s ass ought to be whooped. Truly, your friends got fired? Bogus!!
