Except when I'm in New Hampshire, where there are more than a few of us, I have this conversation all the time. Is it just me??
Them: "Your last name please?"
Them: "I'm sorry?"
Me: Salt... marsh, just like it sounds."
Them: "I'm sorry, could you spell that, please?"
Me: "S A L T M A R S H"
Them: "Oh! Just like it sounds!"
New Hampshire is easy:
Them: "Name please?"
Me: "Saltmahsh" (not misspelled - think New England accent)
Them (writing Saltmarsh): "Thank you"
Me: "Thank you!"
So without further ado, here's the most popular misspellings I've seen. Keep an eye out for them in your research.
The stupidest one I've seen is my wife, Necia Saltmarsh, getting a piece of mail to Mezia Felzmars. She writes neatly, too. Oh well....
Please send any comments, questions, and suggestions to Mike
