Picture this: you have a unique, beautiful name that's a little tricky to spell. You're patient with people, even offering your easier-to-spell middle name as an alternative. But then, there's that one coworker who just can't get it right and seems to be doing it on purpose. 😒 Meet Saoirse (pronounced Seer-sha) and her coworker Kate, who's been butchering her name left and right. Saoirse finally decides to give Kate a taste of her own medicine, but things don't go as smoothly as she hoped. 🍿 Let's dive into this wild name game rollercoaster. 🎢

Saoirse vs. Kate: The Ultimate Name Showdown 🥊

Saoirse, a woman with a unique name, has been dealing with her coworker Kate purposely misspelling her name on official documents. 😤 She's even rejected Saoirse's middle name, Rifle, as a solution, calling it "trashy" and "not an actual name". Saoirse decides to fight back by calling Kate various names like Kathleen, Catelyn, and Kylie. 😏 This backfires, as Kate accuses her of being a bully and an a**hole. Saoirse reports the situation to HR, but they're no help. 🤦‍♀️ Let's see what the internet thinks of this name battle royale... 💬
